Breakfast Club


The school provides a 30-place daily breakfast club. The club is available from 8.00 - 8.55am. and provides a range of dance, drama, ICT, study support and art activities as well as a hot and healthy breakfast. Charges are kept low to working families. There is a very small charge made to families eligible for free school meals. Other charges should be gained from the school office. Places can be booked through the school office.


Extra-curricular


We are proud of our extensive programme of extra- curricular activities which includes a homework club, language classes, sports, drama and arts activities. Children sign up to attend these activities each term. Specialist music tuition is also available – please contact our music teacher for details.


Behaviour and discipline


We expect very high standards of behaviour from adults and pupils at all times and expect and encourage pupils to develop self-discipline and exercise self-control. They are given carefully planned opportunities to take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour. We help children to resolve their differences and conflicts in positive and constructive ways so that they may learn the skills to do so independently.


Children and adults abide by a code of conduct. We use a system called “Stay on Green” around the school and playground to support our pupil behaviour expectations. The Inclusion team, led by the assistant head teacher oversees and supports any aspects of additional behaviour needs. Pupil Peer Mediators and Playground Friends play a key role in supporting playtimes helping others negotiate friendship issues. Our highly trained supervisors ensure our values of respect and safety are upheld.


We encourage children to report all incidents of name- calling, including racist names, violence or bullying, and systematically remind children how to do this. These incidents are rare but taken very seriously and are recorded and dealt with swiftly. We prefer to involve parents at a very early stage in supporting their children.


For details of our behaviour and anti-bullying policies please contact the school office or the school website.


After-School Provision


Camden Play Service pick up children from the playground and take them to the Play Centre at Coram’s Fields, Bloomsbury. The Play Centre is open until 6pm daily.


Staff in the school office can give you details about enrolment and charges.


Family Learning Centre


We believe that providing lifelong and family learning is a key role, a “Moral Purpose” of our school and so our Family Learning Centre is used for socialising as well as for parents’ classes such as English Language classes, sewing classes and family numeracy and literacy and a weekly coffee morning . There is a twice weekly “stay and play” for parents and toddlers and a busy timetable of activities for pre-nursery children, which we are constantly developing. From Tuesday to Thursday a Parent Support Advisor (PSA) and employability workers are based on site to assist with any issues from housing to career coaching.


Keeping you informed


We invite you to welcome meetings at the beginning of each year to meet your child’s teachers and support staff and learn about the year ahead. • Argyle holds 3 parent’s evenings a year so you can discuss your child’s targets and progress and agree joint ways forward. • We use Group Call, a texting service to text reminders about events or sudden issues. • The school website is being developed and is the location for many policies and school calendar of events. • The fortnightly newsletter updates and celebrates our ongoing achievements. • The playground notice board ( to the left of the main gate) gives information for the day and week ahead • Staff will always be available at the end of the day so you can quickly discuss issues or make appointments.
