Our Vision

Our vision is to create a federation of schools where children succeed and are proud of their achievements. We strive to actively promote British values and prepare our children to become role models, thus preparing them for life in modern Britain. To do this, we create a respectful, inclusive atmosphere that is welcoming, fun, friendly and safe. We are a federation that nurtures curiosity and creativity through an inspiring, challenging and engaging curriculum, where learning is at the heart of all that we do. Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in an environment where success is celebrated. Our ethos is delivered through these aims for our children:

• To teach tolerance and respect to all children. All children are valued individuals and should be respected.

• To encourage everyone to have high expectations of themselves in an environment where they can reach their personal best.

• To promote equality of opportunity and aim to develop the children’s awareness of moral, cultural, social and spiritual issues.

• To have engaging and challenging opportunities through a creative and inclusive curriculum within the school and beyond into the local community.

• To encourage excellence by sharing successes and supporting the children to reach their full potential.

Through the aims of the Federation, we actively promote lifelong learning whilst ensuring the children respect one another, enjoy their school experiences and achieve their personal best.

Arrangements for the Organisation of Teaching Literacy and Numeracy

We have a yearly intake of 60 pupils so we have 2 classes in each year group. In Year 6, the children are set by ability in Maths. Their registration teacher teaches the class for Literacy and all the Foundation subjects. In this way, the children's Writing targets are focused on in every subject that includes writing e.g. History, Geography, Science. 

All children in Reception and KS1 are part of the Read, Write, Inc phonic based reading scheme. All children are assessed every half term by the Read, Write, Inc Manager and put into a group according to their ability, not their age. All members of staff have received training to deliver Read, Write, Inc. The groups vary in size with the biggest group having 12 children in it and the smallest one with 2 children in it. The more able children in Year 2 are working on a programme called Big Writing Adventure.
