We are very proud to announce that our Investors in Pupils plaque has arrived. It is displayed on the front of the school building.
The Investors in Pupils programme
We are aiming to implement Investors in Pupils across our school and to meet the aims of the programme over a period of approximately 2 years; namely:
In achieving the aims of the programme, school life will have a holistic impact on children’s well-being and the progress they make now and in the future.
Each class has a Class Target display. The children in the class come up with a class target based on learning, behaviour or classroom management; the target is also linked to the value that the school is working on at the time. Class targets are changed every half term and when they are achieved, the group receives a collective reward.
Pupil Voice - Suggestion Box
Lots of pupils have been posting their suggestions in our suggestion box. Keep your suggestions coming as we do look at every single one of them. Although lots of the suggestions have been implemented in school, it is not possible to implement all of them, Mrs Jones provides feedback as to why they can't be put into place in assemblies.

Summer Term 2016
Year 6 Pupils take over a lesson in FS2 and Year 1
Year 6 children worked in pairs to take over lessons. Each pupil took on a role of either a teacher or a learning support assistant. They planned and arranged the resources they needed for the lesson. Subjects such as Literacy and Art were taught. It was a successful activity giving year 6 pupils an insight into teaching. The class teachers provided excellent feedback on the lessons and the younger children thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and have been asking if the older children can come and teach them again.
Spring Term 2016
Our School Bursar, Mrs Tootell did an assembly for Key Stage 2 pupils to talk about the school budget and what the money is spent on. This helped the children learn about the importance of their Eco monitor roles and why we should close outside doors and turn lights off when they are not required.
FS2 and Key Stage 1 had lessons in their classes where they found out about the cost of resources that are needed for their learning.
