Introduction

 

There are currently approximately 390 pupils in our popular and over subscribed school. We serve a very supportive local community

In July 2012, we became an Academy. Together with Godolphin Infant School we form The Godolphin Education Trust. Being an Academy ensures we have maximum control in being able to meet our learners needs.

There are four classes in Year 3 and there are three classes in Years 4-6, with a maximum of 30 pupils (a figure set by our Board of Governors) within each class. The children work as a class unit, with one high ability class and two parallel classes.

We take great pride in setting challenging targets with our pupils and then putting into place the necessary structures and teaching methods that make these targets achievable.

The school is a well kept 1930’s building surrounded by playing fields, two playgrounds, a wildlife area, a vegetable growing area and gardens. All members of the school community value their environment and contribute to maintain this asset.

The children benefit from having extensive facilities for PE outside plus a hall inside. Within the building, we have eleven classrooms plus a further two classrooms to the rear of the school. In addition, we have the benefit of various specialist rooms.

 

  • A Learning Lab where Booster groups and pre-teaching occurs.
  • A Library with an extensive range of books etc. plus computers connected to both the school’s network and the Internet. The library is organised by the school’s librarian and pupil librarians. Parents are encouraged to come in before school to choose books etc. with their children.
  • A Music Suite used for class lessons, music clubs and specialist lessons.
  • Our Computer Suite comprises of 32 personal computers (linked to both the Local Area Network and Internet) plus a digital projector.
  • A specialist computer unit, contains 6 more computers, which are specifically used as tools to raise standards.
  • Classrooms benefit from up to date equipment, including an interactive whiteboard, digital cameras and a unit of further computers within each year group. Laptops are also available for small group work.
  • Parents are welcomed to courses in the Community Room.
