Ofsted Report

Exam and Assessment Results & Performance Tables
These figures tell you about performance of pupils at this school at key stage 2 (school years 3 to 6), which are the last four years of the primary phase of education. These figures were published in December 2016 and relate to pupils who completed key stage 2 in the summer of 2016.

Our curriculum is interesting, motivating, broad and balanced. It is based on our core values and is relevant to our children and their interests.

Positive Behaviour Policy
We aim to ensure that all children leave our school understanding the importance of behaving responsibly and being able to make good choices for themselves. This will enable them to prosper and thrive personally, socially, academically and economically. Teaching and encouraging children to behave with their peers and adults is an essential pre-requisite for happiness, effective learning and success.

Complaints & Grievance
We believe that our school provides a good education for all our children, and that the Co Headteachers and other staff work very hard to build positive relationships with all parents. However, the school is obliged to have procedures in place in case there are complaints by parents or guardians. The following policy sets out the procedures that the school follows in such cases.

PE and Sports Premium
The Sports Premium is additional funding from central government which must be spent on making improvements to the provision of PE and sport in schools. These improvements must benefit all primary age children, so that they can develop healthy lifestyles.

Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium is additional funding made available by the government to support pupils whose educational experiences may have been adversely affected through financial hardship or significant upheaval in their home life.

Special Educational Needs (SEN) report
Children with SEN make excellent progress at our school. This is due to our high quality teaching and learning, personalised support packages and intervention and of course the invaluable support of families.

SEN Policy
This policy should be read in conjunction with our SEN Local Offer which has been produced with and for the parents/carers of children with SEN/D. This can be accessed via the school website and is a comprehensive set of Frequently Asked Questions which explain how our school supports children and parents/carers. The website also includes a link to Gloucestershire’s Local Offer.

Governors' Information and duties
A School governing body has a strategic role in the development of the school but does not become involved in the day-to-day management issues – that is the role of the Co Headteachers.
