Earls Barton Primary School is a Community School and therefore North Northamptonshire Council is the admission authority for the school.  Detailed information regarding admission arrangements to schools in the county and to the Appeals Procedure for parents to follow if their preferred school is oversubscribed are contained on the North Northamptonshire Council website here. 

Allocation to Early Years Foundation Stage Classes

When classes are organised prior to the children entering school in September staff take great time and care to ensure that the classes are well balanced.  The following areas are considered:

  • Gender
  • Dates of Birth
  • Information provided by pre-school settings

It is the school’s belief that young children thrive in new, exciting and challenging environments. The organisation of the Foundation Stage provides many opportunities to form new friendships and develop vital social skills.

School Curriculum

We offer all of our children a broad and balanced curriculum which includes all statutory aspects of the National Curriculum for Y1 – Y6 and the revised EYFS curriculum for Reception.

Our children are taught phonics (using Read-Write Inc) daily in Reception and KS1 with catch-up phonics sessions in KS2 as needed. Reading and writing are taught as discrete subjects at least four times per week each. Maths is taught every day for a full maths lesson following the White Rose Maths scheme as well as for an additional ten minutes every afternoon; Mastering Numbers is used in Reception – Year Two and daily times tables or reasoning practice are included in Key Stage Two. Science has two lessons per week in Y1 – Y6 and is interwoven through “Understanding the World in Reception.

The foundation subjects are taught weekly to give children a broad and balanced curriculum (see Curriculum tab). History or Geography are taught in alternate terms. Art or DT are taught in alternate terms. Music, computing, PSHE, RE, French (KS2 only) are taught for 1 lesson per week and PE is taught for 2 lessons per week.

 

Pupil Behaviour

Our Relationships and Behaviour Policy and Anti Bullying Policy will advise you on how we manage discipline and behaviour. Please see the link in our sidebar for all of our Statutory Policies.

 

Pupil Premium

Earls Barton Primary school has received an amount of money from the government for various targeted children in the school. Please see the documents in the side bar for further information on how this funding has been used.

 

Sports Premium

The sports premium is a time limited funding given to schools by the Department for Education to improve the provision of sport and PE in primary schools in a sustainable way. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

At Earls Barton Primary School we have a shared vision that this money should be used to develop the physical literacy curriculum, staff CPD and opportunities for all our children in a sustainable manner, ensuring good value for money and continuity in the coming years.

 

Special Educational Needs

All North Northamptonshire Council (Local Authority, LA) maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.

All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.

What is the Local Offer?

The LA Local Offer

The Children and Families Bill was enacted in 2014.  Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer’.

The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.

Further details can be found on the NCC website - see the link in the sidebar.  Additional resources available during the Coronavirus lockdown are also available in the PDF document in the side bar.

Due to the current situation we find ourselves in North Northamptonshire Council have produced an additional page for children with additional needs, however a lot of the information on there is equally relevant to all families. This information can be found here: Local Offer

Our Inclusion Policy, which incorporates our Special Educational Needs Information Report, and our Accessibility Plan can be found by using the link in our sidebar for all of our Statutory Policies.
