The school is based in an attractive, well maintained Victorian building in the heart of Meysey Hampton village. Additional classrooms have been added as the numbers on roll have increased, and most recently the school has enhanced its accommodation with the acquisition of two fabulous new eco-buildings. (Eco-space)
We have approximately 105 pupils (aged 4 to 11) on roll who are taught in 4 classes.Our Reception class is taught as a single year group of approximately 15 children. They work to the Early Years Foundation Stage goals and this gives them a secure grounding on which to base their future learning.
Reception is taught by Miss Burden
Years 1 and 2 are taught together by Miss Jennings.
Years 3 and 4 are taught by Mr Wootton and Years 5 and 6 by Miss Lewis.
Teaching assistants work alongside the teachers in all year groups in order to provide extra support for the children in their learning. In addition, we employ specialist teachers to teach French, Art and PE across the school.
Children have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument through the Local Authority instrumental tuition scheme and Mrs Carden (headteacher) teaches music across the whole school.
High standards of Maths and English are very much at the heart of our curriculum; however we believe in a thematic, creative approach as this provides exciting and relevant learning opportunities. Throughout the year we run creative themed weeks – examples of these, which are very much enjoyed by children and staff alike, include Arts Week, RE Week, Sports Week and Science Week.
As a Church of England Primary school one of the ways we demonstrate our distinctiveness is to embed Christian values through all areas of curriculum. These are introduced through our worship assemblies and underpin the learning ethos throughout the school. Some of the values we will be looking at this year are Courage, Humility, Compassion and Truthfulness.
Trips and visits take place regularly and visitors are invited into school to enhance learning wherever relevant.
Children’s learning is regularly reviewed and assessed and parents are kept informed about pupil learning targets and progress through termly meetings and an annual report.
We hold an act of daily collective worship and focus on an aspect of the value chosen for each term. On Fridays we hold a celebration assembly which is an opportunity for children to recognise each others achievements.
As a Church of England Primary school based on Christian foundations we aim to follow the teachings of Jesus by developing these core values and demonstrating them in all that we do. To read our full Statement of Christian Values please follow the link below.
