Frequently asked questions
Can we visit the school when it is working?
We encourage all new parents to visit the school while we are working.
What size are the classes in school?
Our policy is for the children to be in the smallest classes we can manage. There are fluctuating numbers across the school and from year to year as the numbers of children coming into school varies considerably.
Do children have homework?
Children will be bringing reading books home to read with you from the Reception classes onward. This is an important home task. As they progress through Key Stage 1, they will begin to bring work which they can complete at home.`
Children in Key Stage 2 will also be expected to read to you at home and will bring work to do, mainly in Maths and English. Older Key Stage 2 children will also be encouraged to carry out other work at home.
Do children wear uniform?
We encourage children to wear our school's recommended dress which includes a range of sweatshirts, polo shirts and tops which are available from the school office. There is more information further on in this booklet.
How often will we hear about the progress that our children are making?
You will be invited to Parent interviews in the Autumn term and Spring term to learn about their progress and targets. In the summer, you will receive a report which will tell you progress in each curriculum area.
What provision is there for children who have difficulties or disabilities?
The school’s work with children who need extra support for their learning is led by Mrs Harnden, who is the Co-ordinator for Special Needs. We try to ensure that children with particular needs are included in all of the curriculum provision made by school. If you would like specific help or information, please contact Mrs. Harnden.
