The school is well on the way to realising its vision of becoming an outstanding school
To help us on our journey towards outstanding, all stakeholders have had an input into our school improvement plan. Please see the document below for the overview of our plan. We see this as a two year journey - one which excites us all. If you have any questions, please feel free to have a chat with me. Alternatively, you could attend a Parents in Partnership meeting (PIPs). These are advertised in the school newsletters.
Mr De Silva
If the school is unable to be opened in the morning because of an emergency or bad weather we may have to adopt our emergency closure procedure.
This could involve the head teacher liaising with the other campus heads (in the case of bad weather) to ensure a consistent approach but when a decision is made, we will notify parents, as soon as possible, via Parentmail and we will also update the school website. We will also advise Hampshire County Council who add the school’s name to the Emergency School Closure list and make arrangements for details to be shared on local radio.
If the decision has to be taken during the school day we will once again contact parents via Parentmail asking them to collect their children as soon as is possible. This action will also be advised to County who will arrange for the news to be shared on local radio.
As a school we are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter – Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of our functions to have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism". This duty is known as the Prevent Duty and the document below sets out how our school will meet this obligation.
As a result of the new national curriculum being introduced and the removal of levels it has been recognised that a small number of children would be working below age related expectations. The Minister for Schools commissioned a review to look at assessment for these pupils who have significant additional and different needs and are unable to complete the key stage 2 programme of study.
The Rochford Review developed an interim solution for these pupils to reflect their attainment. This introduced pre key stage standards to be used by teachers to assess pupil attainment for 2016. These standards have been shared with year 6 staff and the SEN team to use with current year 6 pupils who meet the criteria.
