In September 2021, Nassington School joined the Unity of Titchmarsh and Warmington Schools. Policies are therefore being reviewed as part of the Unity's annual cycle and new versions will appear accordingly once they have been approved.

Key Aspects about Nassington School

Financial Benchmarking

Ofsted

There are two key sources of information about the performance of the school. The School Comparison Website provides a snapshot of our school performance at Key Stages 1 and 2. The site can be used by you to check the performance of our school in relation to similar schools and the national picture.

Secondly, the school's last Ofsted inspection took place in June 2018 and was considered Good. The report is available here.

Results & School Performance Tables

Our School Performance Tables published by the Secretary of State on the Department for Education's website can be found by using the School Comparison Website.

Due to the pandemic, there is no data for 2019/20 or 2020/21. Data shown is for 2018/19.

School Curriculum

Information about our Curriculum can be found on the side bar under 'Vision  and Curriculum Overview'. Each class produces a Curriculum Newsletter every term, which is sent home and can also be found in the relevant class area in the 'Our Classes' section on our website. If you would like further information about the curriculum in your child's class, please speak to your child's class teacher in the first instance.

The Role of the Curriculum

Our curriculum promotes respect, tolerance and diversity. We are committed to ensuring that our pupils are offered a broad and balanced curriculum that aims to prepare them for life in modern Britain.

Children are encouraged to share their views and recognise that they are entitled to have their own different beliefs which should not be used to influence others. Our RSE (Relationships and Sex Education), Citizenship and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) provision is embedded across the curriculum, and underpins the ethos of our schools. Our collective worship programme is planned to support these values.

Teaching the school's core values alongside the fundamental British values supports quality teaching and learning, whilst making a positive contribution to the development of a fair, just and civil society. Children are regularly taught about how to stay safe when using the Internet and are encouraged to recognise that people are not always who they say they are online. They are taught to seek adult help if they are upset or concerned about anything they read or see on the Internet.

Phonics Scheme

At Nassington School we introduce children to phonics through the Jolly Phonics scheme which complements and runs alongside Letters and Sounds. This allows us to track the children’s progress.

From Summer 2022, we will be moving to Success For All phonics.

Covid Catch-Up Grant

The school has received money from the DfE to support pupils requiring additional support due to the pandemic and closure of schools. We are maintaining assessment using the data before school closed as a benchmark and running regular tests and hot and cold tasks to ensure pupils are supported and closely monitored. We have invested the money in webcams to ensure that the best possible face-to-face learning can take place for pupils working from home, have run a well-being and self-esteem course offered by NMPAT and have tutoring in place to support pupils on a short-term basis to fill in any gaps caused by the absence. Our quality first teaching also revisits areas missed during the lockdown and teaching assistant interventions are also in place to support the children in school. The schemes of work we use also include recapping of skills and work from the previous year to ensure that all pupils are secure in their prior learning before embarking on the work for the coming year.

Assessing Impact (2021-22)

Through our data drops, which take place five times a year, we will review the progress of each child and will ensure that any pupil who is behind receives interventions from our teaching staff and teaching assistants. This will allow us to identify pupil needs, put interventions in place and assess how well they have caught up. We also have access to online tutoring to ensure that any pupil who is behind can have additional support from a trained tutor.

How will we know if we have been successful?

Each pupil is expected to make at least six steps progress per year and, in the case of pupils who are behind due to the lockdown, they should be able to make accelerated progress with the steps in place. Meetings between the Executive Headteacher and the teaching staff will review this regularly, alongside governor visits and scrutiny at the Unity Standards' Committee meetings.
