A message from the Headteacher

A message from the Headteacher

Welcome to our school

 

The website provides you with updated information about our school.

 

Our motto is

Learn

Explore

Achieve

Respect

Nurture

 

And alongside our vision means we create an ethos where we develop the whole child in a safe and happy environment.

Our children are taught to respect each other’s differences and celebrate diversity. We embrace British Values which are embedded in our school rules and provide many opportunities for children to make choices in the learning environments and through the School Council.

 

As leaders we judge ourselves as Outstanding in all areas. This was supported by Headteachers in November 2018, April 2019 and by Ofsted in February 2016.

 

All visitors to our school including Ofsted are impressed with our exciting curriculum, the engagement of the children, the quality interactions from adults and the amazing behaviour from all the children.

In our school children learn through play and real experiences. We use the term ‘Busy Learning’ which means children are being busy apply Reading, Writing and Mathematics skills across the curriculum.

We also provide first hand experiences which we call Enrichment to support our cross curricular approach to learning.

 

The Enrichment timetable can be found by clicking here.

 

Last year the children visitors included:

A dinosaur and fossil workshop

Earthsong music workshop

 

Visits included:

A walk to buy stamps and post letters at the post office

A trip to Bocketts Farm

 

The strong reputation of our school means that we have had many colleagues and leaders from other schools visit us to celebrate our unique way of learning.

 

In our school most children make expected or outstanding progress from their starting points including identified groups.

We are delighted that the achievement of the children is high with many children working above government expectations by the end of Reception and Yr2.

Pupils with special educational needs & disability (SEND) are very well supported in our mainstream and specialist Centre and they achieve as best they can depending on their specific needs.

Every time I walk around the school, I feel so proud to see all of our children excited by and engaged in their learning and all staff committed to providing an outstanding education.  

 

Best Wishes
