The strong leadership of its headteacher, together with good support from staff and the governing body, has resulted in the quality of teaching and pupils’ achievement improving well since the last inspection.
Achievement is good and attainment is rising well, exceptionally in mathematics. The very large majority of pupils reach the levels expected for their age in national tests and an increasing number are exceeding these levels.
Well-taught lessons, with motivating and challenging activities, promote good progress. The quality of marking and advice given to pupils is especially good.
Children are assessed regularly on what they are learning in school using a combination of teacher assessment and statutory tests.
At the end of your child’s first year at school, they will be assessed using the Early Learning Goals that form the Foundation Stage Curriculum. This is done by ongoing teacher assessment and observation.
In Year 1, children are tested on their Phonics knowledge by completing a statutory Phonics Screening Test with their teacher.
At the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2), your child will take official SATs in reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling and maths. They will also be assessed by their teacher (known as the teacher assessment) on speaking and listening, writing and science.
At the end of Key Stage 2 (in Year 6), children complete SATs tests covering English reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling and maths. Other subjects including writing, speaking and listening and science are teacher assessed.
You can access our most recent SATs results by clicking on the Performance Table (Department for Education) link below.
The Performance Tables give information on the achievements of pupils in primary, secondary and 16-18 provision in schools and colleges, and how they compare with other schools and colleges in the Local Authority (LA) area and in England as a whole.
Information can be found in the School Performance Tables published on the Department for Education’s website.
Our federation recognises the importance of a positive approach to the behaviour of children in school.
As UNICEF ‘Rights Respecting’ schools, we base our core values upon the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. We engender in all members of our federation community an understanding of the concept of mutual respect; where rights and responsibilities are of equal importance, as inscribed in our Federation Charter.
Wyke Regis CE Junior School is a denominational school and consequently promotes Christian-base values such as love, caring, forgiveness and charity.
However, although a non- denominational school, Wyke Regis Infant School and Nursery also promotes these core values.
The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.
Pupil Premium children are those attending a school who are, or have been at any time in the previous six years, eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), are Children in Care, or have been adopted from care, or are from Military Service families.
The four objectives of the Sports Premium Funding
• To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and have broader exposure to a range of sports.
• To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence
• To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport, and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce
• For schools to show that they understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement
Our school’s shared vision statement values the individuality of all of our children. We are committed to giving all of our children every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards. We do this by taking account of pupils’ varied life experiences and needs.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and have high expectations for all children. The achievements, attitudes and well-being of all our children matter. This policy helps to ensure that this federation promotes the individuality of all our children, irrespective of ethnicity, attainment, age, disability, gender or background.
The full governing body meet every half term and ensure that the school meets its statutory duties. Governors are also organised into two committees: School Improvement and Finance & Environment in order to undertake their work.
The governing body have the authority to co-opt new governors in order to strengthen their skills as a body. Vacancies for parent governors are advertised inline with the DCC protocol.
It is hoped that if parents have a concern or a complaint about the school’s curriculum or other issues that they would, in the first instance contact a class teacher or year leader.
If not resolved, parents should then contact the Assistant Head or Head of Federation. If they wish to make a formal complaint they may contact the Chair of the Governors, Gary Hepburn
The children in Years 1 to 6 can participate in a variety of lunchtime and after-school activities and there is no charge for participation in the majority of the activities.
Our shared vision is a statement of what we are seeking to achieve. It stimulates guides and focuses the work of our federation.
Developing caring, independent learners for the world community.
