Achieving Together What we have achieved so far Children right across the school are making better and faster progress than ever before Teaching is good or better every day We have a strong and passionate staff team across the school Schools’ monitoring and self evaluation systems are robust and accurate Behaviour is good and supports learning in the classroom Learning is better resourced and the environment is cleaner, brighter and more stimulating We were rated Good by Ofsted We have stronger partnerships with parents and our community Our skilled Governing Body knows the school better than it has ever done before and holds the school to account
St Mary’s CE Primary School Three Phases within one school We will hold the hand of every child; we will know them, support them, teach them and nurture them.
Why move Y2 To create 3 distinct phases within the school and a more continuous learning journey Enable greater flexibility with the time table and curriculum, tailored to the age and stage of the children To group staff and resources to best support all children and provide personalised and tailored support where needed Ensure an absolute focus on best practice at each stage of a child's development Break down old barriers Greater sense of one school family
Last time we spoke you said ‘What Worked Well’ Drop off at classroom doors Children have their own toilets Start of term class newsletters Planned and staggered playtimes / designated play areas Close contact with teachers / easily accessible Afterschool club Parents involved in school life and are listened to Playground at Church lane is great
Last time we spoke the things you said it would be ‘Even Better If’ Play times could be staggered We could keep the feeling of grown-up-ness in Y2 We could make transition slow and well planned, making lots of visits The Lunches could be as nice We could help your children with their worries about older children Easier communication for working parents Stagger the beginning and end of the day to make drop-offs and pick-ups easier
Listening to parents and carers and making things easier Adjusting the times of the school day so that parents/carers can be present when the bell goes on each site Offering email communication for parents/carers On line payments Improved website giving parents access to more information
Some transition activities on top of the day to day routine stuff Activities around Rectory Gardens including a treasure hunt and map making Visiting for Lunch and play times Playground buddies and peer mediators Buddy system with year 5 – including buddy readers Lots of Q & A with the children so as many of their questions can be answered Taster days including drop off and pick up Getting to know all the staff, including admin, site and lunch time staff Visits to watch assemblies and performances Parents workshops on the curriculum and an orientation session so you can get to know the building too
