About the service

Service Description:
A mainstream Infant and Nursery School with 270 on roll in main school and 39 place nursery.
We are an open plan school with 9 classes and 1 nursery. We have one learning support room and another small room for one to one/ small group work. The classrooms are smaller than average.
The school is built at differing heights and has steps with single hand rails into the classrooms and the hall.
Outside we have two main playground areas and one area of grass.

We liaise with other schools and implement a transition plan for admissions as required.

SEND Provision:
On entry to the school in Year 3 each child’s attainment level is broadly shown by Key Stage 1 SATs results. These, together with previous reports, records and liaison with Key Stage 1 staff, will help to inform the school of a child’s aptitudes, abilities and attainment. This will be used to improve continuity in learning when entering Key Stage 2. The records provided help the school to design appropriate differentiated learning programmes. For pupils with identified SEN the SENCO/Class teacher/Learning Mentor/Special Needs Teaching Assistant will use the records to:
•Provide starting points for appropriate curriculum.
•Identify the need for support within the class
•Assess SEN difficulties
•Ensure ongoing observation/assessment provide regular feedback and achievements/experiences for planning next steps in learning
•Involve parents in a joint home-school learning approach

We liaise with local nurseries for the children who transfer into school from other providers and work closely with Oakwood Junior school to support the transition between KS1 and KS2.
