Latest Ofsted Report
Our belief is that children learn best when they are engaged, motivated and enjoying their learning. As a result, we provide our children with a broad, balanced curriculum through the delivery of the National Curriculum and Religious Education in Key Stages 1 and 2 which is rich in opportunities for new experiences, encounters and activities. To make learning as meaningful and as exciting as possible we deliver the curriculum in a variety of ways. We use topics and themes where links are made between subjects to enrich and widen the experience and discrete subject teaching where we feel the subject matter or skills needed are best suited to this approach. We have regular whole school topics and theme days and we make regular visits out.
Reception children follow the Foundation Stage Framework. Reading is taught using a synthetic phonic programme (Letters and sounds and Jolly Phoncs), a mix of reading schemes and real books- we want children to develop a love of reading.
Pupil Premium Information
WHAT IS THE ‘PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT’?
The Pupil Premium is a grant allocated to schools in addition to the main school budget. It is awarded on the basis of the number of children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), for any child who has had free school meals in the last 6 years (these are called Ever 6), Looked After Children and Service Children. The funding is seen by the Government as a way to address the current inequalities between children eligible for FSM and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Looked After children face additional barriers to reaching their potential and so these children, too, will receive a premium. Below are links to documents showing how the school has spent or is spending its allocations of Pupil Premium funding.
