ICT

The School is exceptionally well equipped with Apple Mac technology, including iMacs, iPods and iPads that support and enrich learning in all classes.We take great pride in making sure that the children have the best possible access to ICT as part of their learning, and use interactive global technology safely to ensure that they maximize what they do within lessons. We are continually looking to use a variety of computer programs to supplement the diverse nature of the curriculum.

We are very proud of our developing use of APPs and we have even created a few of our own! It is vital in this fast-paced, changing field that our children develop skills that make them more effective learners. Our approaches to integrating ICT do this and set us far apart from many other Primary schools.

As a school, we value the importance of providing opportunities for children to learn outside of school and will continue to try to provide these as we fully recognise that online learning is playing an increasing role within everyday life. We will ensure that both staff and children are kept fully aware of risks and issues that may arise and ways in which to minimise these risks.

We will use Twitter to post information, updates and blog posts; these will stream directly to our school website. We will also use class pages on primary blogger to share some examples of children’s learning and to communicate with others. Children will never have access to passwords and we will ensure that we block any followers that appear inappropriate. No-one is able to post on the website or write a comment without it being approved by a teacher to ensure that the children are not subjected to any inappropriate comments.

Online learning includes, but is not limited to:

 

Collective Worship

As a Church of England Academy we believe that the ethos of the school must, in all its spiritual, moral and cultural aspects, reflect the teachings of Christianity. We aim to promote a happy, caring and non-threatening environment within which each individual can develop his or her own physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual potential to the full, and at his or her own pace and level. We also aim to foster a caring partnership between home, school and community. We try to achieve this by regular collective worship with Rector Elaine, celebrating key Christian Festivals at church, including Christmas, Harvest and Easter, and through our support of outside charities.

This year our collective worship timetable focuses on weekly themes which promote values. As part of this we will focus on the Fundamental British Values and teach these through both collective worship and classwork within school.

Science

We provide children with the scientific tools to learn independently about the world around them. From Reception children learn through a play-based, exploratory style; this steadily progresses through the school to the application of full scientific investigations in Year 6. As well as secure subject knowledge we teach children skills to work scientifically, which they can use in different contexts to support their independent learning. To promote a love of the subject, science is taught weekly, and three science days are planned across the year so that children have opportunities to explore how science is applied in the real world.

Humanities

The Academy offers a high-quality history education that will help pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Alongside this, geographical education inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world. Humanities will be taught alongside topic work to develop children’s knowledge and understanding further. Units of work may be taught in blocks, themed enrichment days or in afternoon sessions over the school terms. 

Relationship and Sex Education

We have based our school’s Sex Education Policy on the DfEE guidance document Sex and Relationship Education Guidance SRE (ref DfEE 0116/2000). In this document, sex education is defined as ‘learning about physical, moral and emotional development, including understanding the importance of family life, stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care.’

Charging policy

We offer a wide range of trips and visits at school. All of these are a very important part of school life and offer exceptional value for money. We are required by law to have a policy that sets out what we can charge for and equality in relation to this. Should you have any further questions regarding charging for visits please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

Children’s Progress

We are very proud of how hard our children work and the range of opportunities they have to support their learning. We can also say that all our children leave school having achieved what is expected of them or far exceeding this. Over many years our children have consistently performed higher than all their peers nationally, and the overwhelming majority of children make progress far beyond what is expected. The tables below show the children's achievement for Year 2 and 6 SATs tests for 2017 and our progress from Key stage 1 to Key stage 2 (. National expected progress from KS 1 to KS2 is set at  0.0 )
