Local Authority maintained schools are required to teach the national curriculum, laid down by the Department for Education (DfE), but also have scope to teach their own local curriculum in addition to this. We have designed our local school curriculum based on what we believe our pupils need to develop and grow and help us realise our vision and aims for them.
Our school curriculum also includes Religious Education laid down in the Shropshire Agreed Syllabus, and from September 2020 the PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) curriculum, which also includes Relationship Education. For more information see our Curriculum pages under the 'Learning' tab and the individual class pages under 'Classes' .
Our curriculum has been carefully planned to ensure children have the knowledge and skills to equip them for life in modern Britain, and to support them in becoming a thoughtful, caring and proactive global citizen. Detailed curriculum grids are available for content taught each term in each class. These are sent home to parents at the start of each term, so that parents know what children are learning. Parents’ Grids of curriculum content can be found on the individual class pages under the 'Classes' tab of this website.

Safeguarding Child Protection
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
Safeguarding is not just about protecting children from deliberate harm. It relates to aspects of school life including:
- pupils’ health and safety
- the use of reasonable force
- meeting the needs of pupils with medical conditions
- providing first aid
- intimate care
- internet or e-safety
- appropriate arrangements to ensure school security, taking into account the local context.
Our Designated Child Protection Leads are:
Mrs Adele Thain Acting Executive Headteacher
Mrs Vicky Baillie Deputy Headteacher
Miss Kim Archer Lead Teacher
Miss Sarah McLaughlin Class Teacher
Our Safeguarding Child Protection Policy can be found on our 'Policies and Procedures' page.
School Performance Tables
School Performance Tables are published by the Secretary of State on the Department for Education’s (DfE) website and can be found here.
If schools have a year group of 10 or fewer their data online is supressed (i.e. not published). This is to protect the identity and ensure anonymity of pupils in small cohorts. If you see SUPP on the DfE's website data pages this means the data has been suppressed for that year, due to 10 or fewer pupils in the cohort.
School Results - Key Stage 2 (End of Primary)
There were no statutory assessment tests (SATS) in 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
We have small cohorts which can make use of data against national comparison difficult to interpret. Please see the Primary Results Summary table for 2016 to 2019 downloadable below. Staff are happy to talk to you about what these table mean in a small school where small cohort sizes make data statistically difficult to compare with the national figure. School results are not published for cohorts with 10 or fewer children.
In July 2019 our 12 Year 6 pupils took end of Key Stage tests (SATs).
Progress scores were all in the average band: Reading (-2.7) similar to 64% of school nationally; Writing (-1.5) similar to 67% of school nationally; and Maths (-0.6) similar to 58% of school nationally.
42% of pupils achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths compared to 65% nationally.
0% achieved the high higher standard in Reading, Writing and Maths (compared to 11% nationally).
The average scaled scores were (national comparison in brackets): Reading 101 (104); Maths 103 (105) and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling 103 (106).

Schools are required to report their swimming results. Key Stage 2 children swim in the summer term each year. In 2018/19, 100% (12 out of 12) of our Year 6 children could swim 25 metres confidently and meet the other requirements of the Year 6 curriculum. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our swimming lessons in summer 2020 were cancelled.
