About Stoney Middleton Primary

Stoney Middleton C of E Primary School is really rather unique. Small numbers on roll mean personalised learning and well differentiated work is readily available to all the pupils. Class sizes are small and that means all children receive lots of attention from the dedicated, committed, hardworking and enthusiastic staff. The last Ofsted inspection stated that “this is a good and improving school.”

We aim to establish a caring and challenging school community where all pupils feel valued and develop a love of learning. 

We aim to encourage self-discipline and to keep rules and regulations to a minimum.

As members of the community we aim to build positive relationships with each other, with the children and their families.

As members of the school community, we all have rights and responsibilities. We believe that everyone at school is important and is to be valued. We expect each individual to respect others, their families, culture and beliefs. We aim to be courteous and fair in our dealings with each other and the children.


Everything we do, we do with PRIDE

 

Patience  - Wait even though it may be difficult; show self control.

Respect  - Treat others with care; consider the learning of others; respond to greeting from adults.

Integrity  -Be honest; take responsibility for your own actions; apologise

Determination  - Do the right thing, even when it’s hard; make good choices.

Excellence  - Be ready to learn everyday; do your best

 

Curriculum

Our Curriculum

Our School Curriculum follows all the requirements of the National Curriculum but we are proud to offer a much broader curriculum than that, making the most of many and varied opportunities to broaden and enrich the curriculum for our children.

The National Curriculum provides the school with the outline of knowledge, skills and understanding that we are required to cover in school. We choose to teach much of this through creative, cross-curricular themes where children will learn different strands of the curriculum from a range of subjects.  Historically the school has taught these strands through one topic for a half term; we are now beginning to redevelop the curriculum, in partnership with the children.  This redevelopment sees the introduction of 2-3 mini topics each half term.  The aim of this change is to totally immerse the children in the area of learning. 

The curriculum maps used by the school up to November 2016 are available below and on the information page.

The National Curriculum comprises core and foundation subjects. The three major core subjects are English, Mathematics and Science and these take up a larger share of curriculum teaching time. As a church school, Religious Education and Collective Worship are really important to us, as we make our way through life, giving us a strong moral compass and developing compassion and empathy for others, following the Values for Life. The foundation subjects are: art and design; computing (previously Information and Communication Technology, or ICT); design and technology; languages (previously modern foreign languages); geography; history; music; physical education. The main curriculum is extended with other aspects of learning, including personal, social, health and citizenship education. There is also significant emphasis put on social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of individuals.

We aim to teach our curriculum in an engaging, interesting and stimulating way, primarily through a thematic approach, using visits and visitors to enhance the curriculum. Please read on to find out more details about each subject that forms part of the National Curriculum, and how we teach it.

For further details about the curriculum at Stoney Middleton CE Primary School, please contact Mrs Bite in the school reception.

Ofsted and Inspections

Reports are available from the most recent inspections.  As a church school, these take place in form of an Ofsted report and a National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools Report.

Both can be viewed using these links:

Parent View

When Ofsted inspects a school they take into account the views of parents when making their judgements. They do this through use of an online survey called ‘Parent View’. ‘Parent View’ ask for parents’ opinions on 12 aspects of Stoney Middleton CE Primary School, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.

How do parents have their say?

Log on to the Ofsted ‘Parent View’ website and follow the instructions. Please note that these responses are collected by Ofsted.


Sports Premium

The Government provides additional funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding has been jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. 

This funding can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils’ progress and participation in PE and school sport. 

 

In order to ensure all young people have access to high quality PE, schools are required to publish details of their sporting provision on their websites. Below is our School Action Plan showing how we intend to utilise our funding across the school to improve our PE provision.

Staying SAFE

Staying SAFE

Care of Children

 

The safety and welfare of children is the most fundamental part of our school. Safeguarding children is everybody's responsibility in our school and all staff members take this part of their job very seriously. We aim to offer a secure and encouraging environment where children’s spiritual, moral and cultural development is enhanced through delivery of the curriculum and through our PSHE programme in particular.


With the exception of break and lunchtime, each member of staff is responsible for the care of children in their class. Members of staff share responsibility for the care of children at breaktimes and lunchtimes. When accidents occur they are dealt with by a member of the school staff in the first instance. If further action is required parents will be contacted. Should you have any worries or concerns about your child in school you should contact your child’s teacher in the first instance. The Headteacher is also available to discuss any more serious concerns.

 

Child Protection

 

Parents should be aware that the school is required to take any reasonable action to safeguard its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill- treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, the Headteacher is obliged to follow the Child Protection procedures established by the Derbyshire Area Child Protection Committee and inform the Social Services of the concern.

When the school refers a concern about a child to the Social Services Department, it is not accusing the parents of abuse but requesting that further investigation takes place to establish whether a child is at risk. 

 

 

 

 

Health & Safety

 

The Health & Safety leader makes regular inspections together with a designated member of the Governing Body. Reports are made to the Headteacher who ensures any necessary action is taken. The school complies with all national and local Health & Safety Regulations. 

Any volunteers or new members of staff have to have an induction with the Headteacher discuss safeguarding within school and their responsibilities. All staff and volunteers are kept up to date with any recent changes or any new documents.

Free School Meals

Universal Free School Meals
From September 2014 all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 in state-funded schools in England are entitled to a free school meal.  This is known as a Universal free school meal.    However, this is not the same as 'Free School Meals status' or as we now call it, Pupil Premium.

Pupil Premium Funding (Used to be known as Free School Meals)
If your family qualifies for Pupil Premium, the school will be allocated £1900 every year for the next six years (that's £11,400!)to spend on resources to directly benefit your child. Your child will also be eligible for a reduction when paying for school trips and activities.

In England, children are entitled to receive free school meals if their parents or carers are in receipt of any of the following benefits:
- income support
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16 190, as assessed by HMRC)
- Working Tax credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax credit.

If you think you might qualify, simply fill in the form (see link to Derbyshire County Council).  All applications are treated in the strictest of confidence.  Your child will never be told that they are a 'Free School Meal' but we will receive more funding to help further your child's development!

Parent Viewpoint

The views of our parents are important to us here at Stoney Middleton.  We hold two parent evening a year which allow you to formally meet to discuss your child's progress but we also offer an open door policy enabling you to make contact with your child's teacher or the headteacher; Mrs Tomlinson has access to all assessment information as she is responsible for the collation of all data. 

Questionnaires

Throughout the year we will send out questionnaires related to a range of areas; we will send these to parents and children as your views are the way we will continually improve.

Further opportunities for voicing your views

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about Stoney Middleton CE Primary. It asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. Ofsted uses the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when. By sharing your views, you’ll be helping us to improve – we’ll aim to keep doing the things you praise and sort out the things you criticise. Please remember that if your feedback is specific to your own child, it might be better to contact someone at school so we can respond quickly and specifically to help your child.

At the Parent View website, you’ll also be able to see what other parents have said about the school (and, if you want to, view the results for any school in England).

Complaints

If you should feel the need to make a complaint regarding your experiences here at Stoney then we have a clear process to follow. Our open policy means that rare issues r concerns can be dealt with quickly and effectively. However, if parents feel that they need to make a formal complaint, it should be made in writing to the Headteacher, who will investigate and give a response within ten days. If parents remain dissatisfied, they can appeal to the Chair of Governors. The case will then be reviewed by a Governors’ Panel and a final response given within twenty days. A copy of the Local Authority’s Complaints Procedure is available on the link below.

School Lunch Information and Menu

The children here at Stoney Middleton benefit from attending a small school as they are provided with a choice of 4 food options each day.  All children are able to sign up for either the hot main meal, a hot vegetarian option, a jacket potato or sandwich along with a choice of hot desert, yoghurt or fruit.  The main meal menu is created by Derbyshire county Council and follows a three week rota changed every six months. The food is prepared on site, by Miss Pippa Bradwell our school cook, who knows the children so well that she can usually guess what the children will want!

Current Menu

Autumn Winter Menu (commencing October 30th)

Home-School Agreement

PARTNERSHIP IN EDUCATION

We are required to publish a Home – School Agreement and to invite parents and carers of pupils of statutory school age who are registered with the school to sign a declaration of support. We believe that all pupil should take a responsibility for their behaviour and we ask all parents to spend time discussing the home-school agreement before asking them to sign/write their name.

The Home-School agreement explains:

•            Our Aims and Vision

•            Our responsibility towards parents and  carers

•            Your responsibility as  a parent/carer  in respect to your child’s education

•            What we expect of our pupils

 

We send agreements to all pupils from Reception to Year 6.

 

We will keep a  copy of the signed agreement on your child’s school file.

 

AIMS OF THE HOME – SCHOOL AGREEMENT

Here at Stoney Middleton we recognise that parents and carers are a child’s first teacher and we value the crucial role that you play.  We recognise the research that shows pupils will be more successful in their learning when schools and parents work  together.  With that in mind our Home-School agreement provides a framework for effective partnership working.

Governors

The Governors are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. The Governing Body should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
