Policies

Admissions

Parents can request that the date their child is admitted to school is deferred until later in the school year or when the child reaches compulsory school age in that school year.

When your child has been allocated a place at Anns Grove Primary school, transferring from an early years setting or home into Anns Grove Primary school is guaranteed as the school place remains available throughout the whole academic year.


Anti-Racist Policy

Our school celebrates the fact that every individual, irrespective of their colour, culture, ethnic origin or any other difference has a unique and valuable contribution to make to our school community. Our aim is to enable all students to reach their full potential within a supportive learning environment.


Attendance and Punctuality Policy

Children come to school to learn and good attendance is important if they are to gain as much as possible from their time in school. When children miss lessons it is harder for them to reach their full potential. Poor attendance and punctuality can lead to children feeling unsettled at school, it can affect their friendships and reduce their confidence. Poor attendance can result in social and academic problems, reducing the long term life chances of children.


Behaviour Policy

Our Positive Behaviour Policy is based on the School Rules which were arrived at through consultation with pupils. These are displayed clearly in each classroom and around school.


Charging and Remissions Policy

The governors and staff of Anns Grove Primary School are committed to a wide range of educational opportunities  including visits offsite and residential to extend and enrich learning experiences.


Confidentiality Policy

The safety, well being and protection of our pupils are the paramount consideration in all decisions staff at this school make about confidentiality. The appropriate sharing of information between school staff is an essential element in ensuring our pupils well being and safety.

Staff and governors established this policy. It forms part of the induction of all new staff, including voluntary staff and is reviewed every year.


E-Safety Policy

The requirement to ensure that children and young people are able to use the internet and related communications technologies appropriately and safely is addressed as part of the wider duty of care to which all who work in schools are bound. A school e-safeguarding policy should help to ensure safe and appropriate use by all users.

How we teach your children to read and write

Every child deserves success right from the start. We know that the sooner children learn to read, the greater their success at school. This is why we put reading at the heart of what we do.

We use a teaching programme called Read Write Inc. Phonics to teach our children to read and write. We make sure every child can read the last set of phonic stories before they progress to our higher level programmes - Literacy and Language, and Spelling. Some children complete the programme in Year 1 and others in Year 2. Year 3 and 4 children who need extra support follow this programme too; struggling readers in Year 5 and 6 children follow a similar programme called Fresh Start.

During this time, we group children by their reading progress for one hour a day (20 to 45 minutes in Reception) and re-assess children every half-term so we can place them in the group where they’ll make the most progress. We provide extra daily one-to-one sessions for children who need a bit of a boost to keep up.
