Classes

Which Class will I be in?

Class One is for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 .

Class Two is for children in Years 3 and 4.

Class Three is for children in Years 5 and 6.

At the start of the year, each class elects its members for the school council; take a look at what we do.

All our classes have small numbers of pupils.

We have a large hall where we have assembly, eat our lunch and have indoor P.E.

The hall is also used for school fundraising events and school performances.

We had a new extension built onto the existing School in 2004, which gave us two new classrooms, a library, a second toilet block and a new medical room.  Another refurbishment in 2009 included the fully operational kitchen and a small special needs/meeting room.  More recently (2014)  we have had the ICT suite converted into another classroom and an additional small group work room built.  ICT is now used as part of learning in all the classes with Tablets, Ipads and laptops.

We have a secure outside play area, complete with an all weather canopy, for Class One children and a large undercover area where we eat our lunch on nice days. This area is also used as an outdoor teaching space and by parents coming to watch Sports Day and the annual School Fun Run.

Literacy and Numeracy are really important at Partney and we are always trying to get better and better at these subjects.
Reading and writing and mathematics take place every morning while we are at our freshest and in the afternoon we concentrate on the other subjects. These are taught as part of our creative curriculum. Guidance from the New Curriculum 2014 subjects are tied together to make an interesting and motivating themed topic in order to make learning fun. We always make sure that children have enough exercise through two hours PE each week. We have computers, tablets, Ipads and laptops in classes to help incorporate ICT into the children's learning. All our four classrooms have an interactive white board. We encourage different visitors to come in and share their expertise with us and welcome parent helpers. Our Governors are also very supportive and come in to assist.

Assessment

Children’s progress and attainments are carefully and regularly monitored and recorded to ensure that they are given work at an appropriate level to their needs. Parents are given annual reports on their child’s progress and are able to discuss work at Target Setting evenings. Staff welcome parents on other occasions if they wish to discuss particular concerns.

Children undertake Standardised Tests in Years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Reception children experience baseline assessment tests.
Reading Ages are tested in Terms 1, 3 and 5.  Children’s progress is monitored closely so that we can take appropriate action where development is above or below average.

Special Educational Needs

We endeavour to help all children with Special Needs and design an Individual Education Plan to assist with this process. Small group work, often with a Teaching Assistant, assists children who are having difficulties in a particular area. Help is also available to extend gifted children.  Our current Special Needs Policy may be found in the 'Policies' section of the website and the SEN Offer is on the side tab.
