We are a “Get Reading. Keep Reading. Change Everything.” school

 

We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers with the best chance of success in the KS1.

 

Ruth Miskin Training recognises us for teaching the programme with fidelity and passion – we know what it takes to make reading and writing pleasurable and rewarding for our children.

 

This badge recognises that we:

  • Raise standards in reading and writing for our children
  • Are all expertly trained by Ruth Miskin Training
  • Gain the latest programme updates through regular visits from our Ruth Miskin Consultant Trainer
  • Support our most vulnerable readers with extra one-to-one teaching every day.

New Nursery & Reception Outdoor Area

After around two years of planning we finally have our new Outdoor Area for Reception and Nursery children. We have created areas for play and learning which include a dry river bed and water feature, a workshop, an outdoor kitchen, sandpit and even a Hobbit Hole! Cool Canvas who designed and built the area for us have made a video of the build to show you how it grew.

Watch out for our grand opening event coming soon!

Prince Harry & Meghan’s Wedding May 2018

To celebrate Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s wedding we held a playground tea party for the whole school. The children made flags, crowns and placemats for the party. Each class decorated a cake and everyone wore red, white and blue and we all stood for the National Anthem showing our commitment to the British Values.

The performance is at The Open in Norwich and tickets are still available from the box office.

Local Authority Audit December 2017

In December the Local Authority undertook an audit of teaching and learning within the school. The process was very helpful in supporting our self-evaluation process and recognized many strengths in the school including: the good relationships between children and staff, well behaved children who are polite and courteous, successful promotion of social and emotional development of our diverse community and that pupils feel well supported in their work. The areas for improvement are outlined in the School Improvement & Development Plan but include: improved use of the outdoor area for Reception and Nursery, increasing the pace of change to move outcomes towards National expectations and to ensure teaching standards are consistently high across the school. To see the action plan go to the School Improvement area of this website.
