School Performance Tables

At the heart of the work of every primary school class is a continuous cycle of planning, teaching and assessment which takes account of the wide range of abilities, aptitudes and interests of the children. The majority of children will learn and progress within these arrangements. Those children whose overall attainments and achievement in specific subjects fall significantly outside the expected range may have Special Educational Needs (SEN).

For children who have a specific learning difficulty or a disability, our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) policy outlines the educational support we provide.

If a teacher notices a pupil experiencing difficulties with their learning they will seek guidance from the school Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo). Advice will be given, which may include alternate strategies to support the pupils learning. Both class teacher and SENDCo will hold a meeting with parents to discuss next steps which could include:

Advise parents to make an appointment to see the GP
Referral to the Speech and Language Therapist service
Referral to the Specialist Teacher Team
Referral to Educational Psychologist service
Referral to EWMHS (Emotional Welfare and Mental Health Services)
When a child is placed on the Special Educational Needs register, consultation with parents will continue through:

Parent consultation day.
One Plan meetings at least twice a year, working alongside pupils, parents and sometimes specialist agencies to set specific targets that work towards achieving a long-term goal.
For pupils with a Statement/ Education Health Care plan (EHC Plan) Annual Review meetings.

We work hard to ensure our children are safe in school and out of school.

. If anyone, any adult or any child, has any safeguarding concern, including any related to radicalisation, they are encouraged to contact one of our safeguarding team, Mr Carter-Tufnell, Mrs Levett, and Mrs Smith in person, via telephone or via email.

If you have any safeguarding issues, but would prefer not to speak to the Headteacher Mr M Carter-Tufnell, please contact Mrs C Adams –

We encourage you to tell us of any concerns you may have about children being safe online. You may also want to use the information on the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) website

If we have reasonable cause for concern that a child may be at risk of significant harm, we will refer to social care. This referral can be made with or without us informing parents.

For further information please read our Child Protection policy along with more information which are available at the bottom of this page or contact one of our safeguarding team.
