Our school is a Church of England co-educational primary school for children aged 4 to 11.
Children are organised into four mixed-age classes, which are:
Class 1: Reception & Year 1
Class 2: Year 1 & Year 2 (Key Stage 1)
Class 3: Year 3 & Year 4, (Key Stage 2)
Class 4: Year 5 & Year 6 (Key Stage 2)
The building is in two halves, with the original part having been built in the 1960s and a new entrance, two new classrooms and a hall having been added a few years ago.
We have an ICT suite with 17 PCs and some iPads, while our library of non-fiction books is developing. We keep the school environment tidy and attractive, with regularly changing displays.
We teach through a Creative Curriculum; developing the children’s learning through a range of imaginative, relevant and thought provoking themes. We want our children to develop their imagination and thinking skills through a curriculum that is skills based and knowledge supported. Our planning begins with the key skills we want to develop and the content to support these. Sometimes these skills are subject based and others are key skills for learning that encourage the children to be good communicators, team players and problem solvers. Each class will send out a curriculum information sheets at the beginning of each topic.
Our playground and lovely field are used in good weather for PE and at playtimes. There are two sun shelters, an adventure trail, and a play area with tyres. We also use the outdoor space during lessons. The reception class has a fenced outdoor area. The Forest School area adjacent to our grounds is an exciting space for children and an extremely valuable teaching resource.
The school’s links with the church are important to us, and parents are asked to bring their children to church on one or two occasions during the year. The Vicar and other leaders from the wider church communities in Studley & Mappleborough Green lead an assembly every week, and the church also appoints Foundation Governors.
