Welcome Parents, Friends and Visitors...
Thank you very much for visiting our website. We hope you will find it interesting and that you get a good idea of what a great school and community we have. We are very proud of our school. Read Mrs Smith's full message here.
Welcome back to school after the summer holidays and a special welcome to all our new children in Reception, as well as new children who have joined in other year groups.
During the summer holidays there have been more improvements made to the school building. The School Hall has been re-painted, hot water supplies have been ﬁxed to all classrooms and the pool renovation is coming on well.
We have exciting trips planned this term to link with our topic work on Pirates and Invaders, please check your emails for details over the coming weeks!
Assessment and Expectations
Following the introduction of the new National Curriculum, it is now for schools to decide how to assess pupils’ progress.
The use of ‘level’ descriptors has been removed and with the focus of raising the achievement of every pupil, Barnabas Oley School governors, headteacher and teachers have chosen to measure pupil attainment and progress using a new seven step scale. Please see our Assessment and Expectations page for further details. Our Assessment booklet for parents can also be viewed here.
Parent Questionnaire 2016
Thank you to all the parents that responded to our questionnaire. We value your thoughts and opinions on our school and your responses help us to shape policy and practice.
The 2016 survey is now closed. Please click here to view the results.
