If your child suffers from asthma they are requested to keep an inhaler in their class. Please notify the school in your child suffers from asthma.

 

Behaviour Management 

We take a positive approach towards behaviour. All members of staff have high expectations and follow the school’s policy which can be found on our website's policies page. 

 

Inclusion

We recognise the diversity of needs within our school and we aim to give each individual child the support they need. We aspire to create a socially inclusive community where all children are accepted for their individuality and unique ability.

 

Music Lessons

Children are able to learn a variety of instruments, including the violin, woodwind, guitar and drums. Weekly sessions at the school are run by a company called IMS, but the office at school will be able to give you all the information you need. Currently, over 50 children learn instruments.

 

Collective Worship

 

Each day the children experience a daily act of worship held in the hall. This is an opportunity to develop the children’s sense of self, others and spirituality. The basis of this is Christian and takes on a broad knowledge of world faiths, especially festivals and celebrations and the roles and responsibilities of citizens.

 

Right of withdraw

 

We expect all children to attend assembly. However, any parent can request permission for their child to be excused from religious worship, and we will make alterative arrangement for the supervision of the child during that part of the assembly. Parents do not have to explain or give reasons for their request. The right of withdrawal complies with the 1994 Education Act, and was restated in the 1988 Education Reform Act.

 

Complaints Procedure

 

You are encouraged to discuss any matter of concern with the Headteacher or Teacher as soon as they arise.  In this way we can avoid small problems growing into large ones. We are required to have a formal procedure for complaints about the curriculum and this is set out below.

 

Arrangement for the handling of complaints about the curriculum:

 

1) Parents who wish to make a complaint should contact the school and make an appointment to discuss the matter with the Class teacher or the Headteacher.  Other school or County staff may be involved as appropriate.

 

2) If the complaint cannot be resolved at school level, the parent may register the complaint with the governing body.

 

3) A sub-committee of governors will usually hear the complaint. The parent has the right to appeal to the Secretary of State.

 

A Complaints Policy was adopted by the school in Autumn 2014.
