Planning, Assessment and Recording
Teachers plan the work of the school half-termly. This planning is detailed and based on children’s different needs. The curriculum maps are shared with families at the beginning of the year.
1 and 2 statutory national tests and assessments are administered and reported to parents.
Planning is based on innovative schemes of learning which respond to children’s interests. Learning takes place in real and meaningful contexts and as such children are frequently at the British Museum, a local park, gallery or site.
Children are assessed termly in Reading, Writing, Maths and Science. Each child’s progress is carefully monitored and where necessary high quality additional support or provision is provided. Teachers give regular feedback to children and parents about pupils’ learning. Children and parents are involved in setting termly targets to improve pupils’ work.
Children’s achievement and attainment in other subjects (including Arts, Humanities, Sports, Music, Personal and Social Skills and Citizenship) are also monitored. Careful planning ensures that children are able to enjoy and achieve success in many different ways. A wide range of activities are provided for children who are gifted and talented in different aspects of their learning.
Pupil outcomes are the responsibility of the governors so they receive and scrutinise regular whole school reports on standards and achievements.
Pupil Progress and target setting meetings You will be invited to meet your child’s teacher to discuss progress and future targets each term. In the summer term you will receive a written report on the year’s work. You are welcome to make an appointment to speak to your child’s teacher at any time.
15 At the end of Key Stage
A daily act of collective worship is held in class- rooms, in Key Stage groups or as a whole school. We make sure our assemblies build on the beliefs of all our children and is a time to reflect on religious, spiritual, moral and social issues. Classes take turns to lead assemblies. They present their classroom work through drama, songs and dance. Parents are encouraged to attend their children’s class assembly. Parents have the legal right to withdraw their children from collective worship or religious education, in whole or in part and are invited to discuss this with the head teacher if they are considering this.
PE and Swimming
Our goal is that all our children will be healthy in mind, body and spirit and love being active. We are proud of our regular Healthy active days and Active Mark. All children take part in Gymnastics, Dance, Athletics and indoor and outdoor games at least twice a week. All children from year 3 onwards are taught to swim at local pools by qualified instructors. There are many after school sporting activities for all ages and many children participate in inter-school events .
For safety and comfort we insist that all children change into the proper clothing for all sports. The younger children wear vest, pants and go bare- footed for indoor PE. PE equipment is available from the school shop.
