School Description Primary (doc format, 28KB)

The School is a very successful and happy school. It has a wide catchment area,
offering places firstly to those living nearest to the school.
There are 88 children on roll. The school is currently organised into four
classes: Reception and year 1, year 2, years 3 & 4, years 5 & 6. There are three
LSA’s, a part-time secretary, three lunch-time supervisors and an assistant who
serves the school meals. There is also a caretaker.
The school is well supported by parents, many of whom work regularly alongside
the children in their classrooms. The Friends of The School is very active and
organises many social and fund-raising events, which significantly boosts the
School’s budget.
The Governors are also very supportive and visit the School regularly and offer
their individual expertise and advice where necessary.
The School is a C of E school; the status is “Controlled” but the possibility of
changing to “Aided” status is currently being explored.
The original School building is listed and dates from the mid 19th century. This
building houses the two junior classrooms, a staff room, the secretary’s office
and a small hall that is used for assemblies and music lessons.
In Spring 2002 a new building was erected to house two classrooms for the
foundation stage and key stage 1 children.
We have a hard surface play area, which includes a netball pitch. There are also
grass areas on which children play, and allotments which the juniors work during
the summer term.
The School hires the village hall and its facilities for lunch, PE, swimming and
drama productions.

It is hoped to develop the school premises in the near future. The successful
candidate will be expected to further these projects.
The School is situated in the small rural village which is equi-distant from
Oxford and Swindon. Only 27% of the children in the school live in the village,
the majority come from the surrounding area.
At Anytown Primary School, we take our responsibility for the promotion and
safeguarding of pupils very seriously. This is expressed in the following ways:
We ensure that full discussion of the school’s safeguarding policy is included
in the induction of all new members of staff and volunteers;
We have regular discussions with all staff about the practical implications of
our school policy to ensure that there are common understandings and to
maintain a safe culture at the forefront of staff consciousness;
Our school policy encourages all staff to raise any concerns they may have
about the actions of colleagues. The interests of the child are paramount
and take priority over professional loyalties.
