The school serves the needs of children from nursery Year 6, from 3 years old to 11 years old. Our vision Transforming t.l.c. Teaching, Learning and Community. through Thankfulness, Love and Compassion Our Ethos In recognition of its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England in partnership with the Church and Diocese. The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it ofers to all its pupils. Mission Statement We strive to be a happy, welcoming school family where everyone is encouraged to develop their full potential within a Christian atmosphere. Aims These are our six aims, which underpin everything we do. 1. Encouraging a Christian way of living. 2. Ensuring that each child has a good understanding of how to live a healthy lifestyle. 3. Ensuring that each child feels safe and secure. 4. Providing an enriched learning environment where children can achieve, enjoy and succeed. 5. Ensuring each child has a good understanding of their rights and responsibilities within the wider community. 6. Providing children with the necessary skills and qualities to achieve future well-being and fulfilment in all aspects of life. Our aims are reflected in activities and experiences that:-
Ensure positive attitudes towards cultural diversity. Adopt positive strategies to promote equal opportunities for all. Ensure access to the curriculum for those with special educational needs. Embody the principles of active learning. Establish continuity between home and school and all phases of education. Provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant and diferentiated. Use assessment to develop pupils learning.
To achieve this, a variety of teaching methods will be used which include class teaching, teacher exposition, practical activities and collaborative group work. The following pages give you more specific information about the life of the school, but please feel free to contact school if you wish to look around or require further information.
Ofsted, Inspection and accreditation.
Ofsted/SIAMS At the last inspection, in September 2018, inspectors said that The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. There is greater challenge for the most able pupils and staf present all pupils with a greater challenge in mathematics so that all groups of pupils are making faster progress. The leadership team are determined to ensure that all pupils have an equal opportunity to be successful. They are uncompromising in their drive to make sure that pupils achieve well and feel safe. Pupils behave in an orderly way and you have successfully created a positive culture in which children learn. The efective learner strategy that you and your staf have developed is successful in encouraging pupils to be well organised, highly motivated, resilient, curious, creative and keen to become good citizens. Parents have written very enthusiastically about the encouragement and support given to their children.
Religious Education/church inspection The inspector found that behaviour was outstanding and expectations are consistently linked to the schoolâ€™s core Christian values. As a result, children demonstrate high levels of self-esteem and awareness of others. All members of the community know that they are valued and the ethos of trust and respect is clearly evident. Children are extremely courteous, friendly and responsible. They know that their opinions and ideas are valued. They comment that they are able to share concerns with their teachers and they know that these will be addressed in a sensitive way. Parents say that the school prepares children extremely well for the transition to secondary education. You can see the full inspection reports on our school web site.

Governing Body The Governing Body meet every term. They discuss all issues concerning the school from curriculum to buildings. A list of Governorâ€™s and the basis of their appointment is available from the school office.
Parent/Carers We know that to achieve the best for our children it is important to work in partnership with parents. We value the support of parents and welcome you into the school. Due to security we ask parents to come into school through the main door, other than at the start and end of the school day when leaving or collecting children. Parents are invited into school to share acts of worship, discuss any concerns, help raise money and support particular events. Parents are represented on the Governing body through the elected Parent Governors. Parents can support their childâ€™s work in school by reading and sharing books with them, helping collect and research information for diferent topics and by helping their child to learn spellings,
number bonds and times tables and, more importantly, fostering a positive attitude in their child towards their learning and school life. Keep up to date â€“ sign up to receive school news letters on the school website.
Rewards and Sanctions To encourage children in school we use a range of points, rewards and certificates, for example, merit certificates, stickers and comments. The school has a consistent approach to how we support children through the implementation of a behaviour and discipline policy. We welcome contributions from home, for example, copies of swimming certificates or photographs of particular achievements which we will share in worship time. Occasionally sanctions need to be applied. For children who frequently make the wrong choice we inform and work with parents and ask that parents support school when sanctions have to be used.
Attendance It is essential that children attend punctually and regularly. It is very difficult for children who arrive late to settle into their class work and catch up with what they have missed. Parents are asked to ensure that children do not miss out through inappropriate absence or lateness. Parents who allow their children to have frequent unauthorised absence may be referred to the Local Authority for support and/or legal action.
Holidays and authorised absence from school.
Parents should avoid taking children out of school during term time wherever possible. The Government gives the Governing Body of the school, via the Head teacher, right to authorise absence but only in extenuating circumstances. If parents wish to take their child out of school they should complete a request for absence form stating why their child needs time out of school and for how many days. Forms can be downloaded from the school web site. Holidays will not be authorised unless a letter is received from the employer stating they cannot be taken at any other time. No absence will be authorised if a childâ€™s attendance is below 96%
Safeguarding/Child Protection We have a duty of care to the children at our school and we work closely with the Local Authority child protection team and Social Care. There may be occasions that we have to call on these for advice, however, we will ensure, whenever possible, that parents/carers are kept informed if we have any concerns. Our safeguarding lead in school is Mr Ward. You can speak to Mr Ward if you have any concerns about any child.
Uniform and appearance
All children wear school uniform. It helps to give a sense of belonging and pride and helps children choose appropriate school wear each day. School uniform enhances the feeling that learning is not only fun but a serious part of life. In the same way inappropriate hair styles can isolate children in school and reduce the feeling of belonging and the sense of importance for their own learning. Parents of children with inappropriate hair styles, including shaved designs and tram lines, will be asked to remedy the situation as soon as possible. Our school uniform can be purchased on-line from Tesco at http://www.clothingattesco.com/wigan/hindley-all-Saintsâ€™-cofe-primary-school/invt/106471/ We also have local connections and businesses that do our logo on uniform such as AC Sports in Pemberton who will deliver to school [phone number 01942 216537] Similar styles and colours to our uniform can be purchased at most high street shops. Children also need a PE kit. It is essential that children have a change of clothes including footwear on PE days. For Health and Safety reasons children should not wear jewellery, especially earrings, in school. The wearing of earrings has caused several serious accidents in some schools, occurring both in PE lessons and playtimes. If earrings have to be worn they must be the small stud kind and children must remove them themselves or cover them with a plaster during PE.
Uniform Boys and girls Red Jumper [Year 6 children wear a black jumper]. White shirt or white polo shirt Black trousers Grey or white socks Black school shoes Girls can choose to wear White blouse Grey skirt/pinafore
PE Kit Boys and girls
Red shorts White T shirt Black slip on pumps for indoors Trainers for outdoors Due to limited storage space, please keep PE kit in a draw string bag.
Money Matters, Finance. School has an online payment system so that you are able to track all your payments to school. Your login details are personal and confidential to you. Please use the online system to make all payments to school. Contact the school office if you need any information about this.
Kitchen Academy Family Dining at Lunchtime
Our kitchen is managed and controlled by ourselves. This means we have complete choice in the quality of food and menu provision. It also means we can use the facilities to hold parent and pupil cooking workshops and ofer a range of additional services too. Children can choose a hot meal a range of sandwiches or jacket potato with a filling. For afters, they have a choice of desserts including fruit,
We operate a ‘family dining experience’ where children are taught how to behave, set out their place setting and eat appropriately, as if they were eating ‘out’. Most children choose a school meal. If you choose to send a packed lunch from home please follow our healthy lunch advice [below] so that your child has the right nutritional balance to make sure they are ready for learning in the afternoon. Children are not allowed fizzy drinks, sweets and tofees in their packed lunch and only one, small chocolate item such as a penguin biscuit, if you choose to send chocolate. Here are some ideas to help…
Throughout lunchtime, children are cared for by teaching assistants under the supervision of senior members of staf and are encouraged to participate in one of many game activities that are organised each day. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal. Please do take this ofer up as it will save you hundreds of pounds over time. If you think you are entitled to claim free school meals because of low income or you receive a qualifying benefit please claim them as school receives money too for every child on â€˜free school mealsâ€™.
Curriculum. Our curriculum is constantly reviewed alongside the National Curriculum in order to provide continuity and progression. Work is carefully planned and diferentiated to meet the needs of individual children and to provide a broad and balanced curriculum. We teach English, Maths and Science as discreet subjects and other elements of the curriculum are taught in creative, topic based ways. We include cross curricular elements in our work. These include Health Education, Environmental Education, Economic and Industrial Understanding and Citizenship. Within each class, teachers employ a variety of teaching methods and grouping criteria based on the needs of the children and the teaching and learning objectives at the time. Each half term we have a focused learning theme and Christian value which compliments and supports what and how children learn.
Early Years Foundation Stage [EYFS] Curriculum. Nursery and Reception The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) applies to children in our Nursery and Reception class.
We endeavour to ensure that children learn and develop well and keep healthy and safe. We aim to support children in their learning through teaching and experiences that gives children the broad range of skills that provide the right foundation for good progress through school and in life. We aim to create an attractive and stimulating learning environment where children feel confident, secure and challenged. The children have daily access to an indoor and outdoor environment that is set up in discrete areas of learning with planned continuous provision. Efective learning builds and extends upon prior learning and following children’s interest. Efective planning is informed by observations of the children to ensure we follow their current interests and experiences. These observations are recorded in the children’s individual learning folders. Play based learning is paramount and children direct their own learning from carefully planned opportunities provided by staf. Staf will enhance play and extend as needed to further individual learning. As children grow older, and as their development allows, it is expected that the balance will gradually shift towards more activities led by adults, to help children prepare for more formal learning, ready for Year 1. Further details of our early years and school curriculum are available on our web site.
Religious Education Religious Education Policy All Saints’’ is a Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School in which the provision for Religious Education is determined by the school’s Governing Body. The Governors expect parents, having chosen a church school, to fully support their child’s inclusion in both religious education and worship in school. Within Religious Education we aim:a) To enable children to discover their own value, to realise their potential and become healthy and whole individuals in the widest sense implicit in Christ’s teachings. b) To promote physical, moral, mental and spiritual development in the light of the Christian Gospel. c) To be a worshipping, tolerant and caring community. d) To help children acquire knowledge and skills relevant to life in a fast changing technological, multicultural society.
e) To be part of the Anglican Church’s service to society in the specific task of education. The Governors have adopted the Liverpool Diocesan Board of Education Syllabus as a guideline. Further details of the content of the Christian and World Faith Study Units are available if required. Please contact the Head teacher who will be happy to assist. Worship at All Saints’’ School All Saints’ has a Christian act of worship each day. These are led by staf, pupils and the Vicar of All Saints’ Church. The aims of our worship are: a) to encourage a reflective attitude to life b) to provide some experience and understanding of what worship, and in particular Christian worship is c) to bring children to the threshold of worship, taking into account their stages of development d) to strengthen the community and to recognise the worth of the educational work of the school e) to affirm the values, foundations and ideals of the school f) to widen the children’s repertoire of emotional response
Worship at All Saints’ is characterised by Praise of God Communication with God, through prayer Story Ritual Silence A sense of belonging to each other within the community An awareness of, and reflection upon, life’s experiences.
Prayer Whilst recognising that many aspects of this important part of Christian life cannot easily be understood by young children we nevertheless hope to lay foundations for a later understanding and practice of prayer by: a) b) c) d) e)
allowing periods of silence during our worship. saying simple “thank you” prayers encouraging children to say their own prayers use of planned and unplanned prayer where relevant introducing some of the great prayers of the Christian faith.
Parents have the right to withdraw their children from our daily worship and religious education lessons. However, School Governors expect parents, having chosen a church school, to fully support their child’s inclusion in both religious education and worship in school. If you would like to discuss this further please speak to Mr Ward.
Other Aspects Bramble, the school dog. The children have already gained a great deal of enjoyment from having their school dog and she has become an established part of life at our school. There are many benefits to having a school dog such as:
having a calming efect on pupils, particularly those with behavioural or learning difficulties; improved behaviour and concentration, reduced stress and improved self-esteem; encouraging expression and participation in more withdrawn children fostering a sense of responsibility motivating pupils to think and to learn, as children have a high level of natural interest in, enthusiasm for and enjoyment of animals; encouraging respect and thereby improving pupils’ relationships with each other, parents and teachers; teaching children to nurture and respect life; helping work undertaken with the most vulnerable children, and educational improvements with low achievers. helping children build confidence in reading.
We know that it is not possible for all families to have a family dog and therefore we hope that this is an opportunity for children to have the experience of caring for a dog and gain much from the relationship and contact with Bramble. Bramble supports children in many other ways including those who have additional and emotional needs, sufer bereavement or who are upset and in need of calm, comfort and space.
Sex and Relationship Education Set within the context of human relationships and focusing on family life as is explicit in the attitudes and values of Christ’s teaching we aim to incorporate “Sex and relationship Education” in our wider Personal and Social Education Policy.
Special Educational Needs and Disability [SEND] The school’s SEND policy operates within the legal framework outlined in the SEND Code of Practice. The school aims for all children to have maximum access to all aspects of the curriculum, by developing each child’s physical, intellectual and emotional competence to achieve their full potential. To achieve this we work in close partnership with parents, and other agencies. If a parent has a concern we ask that this is initially discussed with the class teacher.
Extra-Curricular Activities The school ofers a variety of extra curricular activities throughout the year including art, choir, cooking, computing and sports Visits to other schools and trips to support the delivery of the curriculum are also organised throughout the year.
Media - Photographs/images We take many photographs of the children for many reasons: assessment, recording progress or achievement, participation in events, fun days and theme days. We also use some of these on our web site for you and others to share in what the children have been doing.
Complaints Procedure. If at any time you have a concern or enquiry, please do not hesitate to let us know. Any matter relating to the curriculum or organisation of the school should be discussed, in the first instance, with the Head teacher.
Access to and use of information
Should you wish to know how to access any of our public documents and policies please contact the school. Many of these are available from the school web site. If you would like to know how we keep data, what data we hold or if you wish to have data removed please talk to our school office.
CCTV We have CCTV across the school. There are two reasons for the installation of audio-visual recording capability in the classrooms and corridors. The first and most important is to support professional development of staf. At All Saintsâ€™ we want to be creative and try new teaching methods and share best practice across school. Secondly, having cameras around the school ofers a broad range of security benefits. The presence of cameras will likely have an efect of reducing inappropriate behaviour. It gives us an opportunity to view incidents when serious allegations have been made and where clarification of events is needed. We would like to reassure you that recorded information is saved on a local hard drive, secure in school, and is automatically deleted after approximately 8 days. If recordings are to be saved for training purposes, they are stored on a secure network drive in school. Access to images is monitored and logged and is strictly password protected and available to authorised staf only.
Healthy school - Healthy people Our school values, supports and encourages a healthy lifestyle in a number of ways, for example, promoting healthy eating, drinking, and developing life skills.
Nurse The school nurse is available to discuss things that you feel are confidential. The nurse can be contacted at Hindley Clinic.
Fruit Fruit is given free of charge to every child in Year 1 and Year 2 every day.
Breakfast is provided, free of charge, for all children from Nursery to Year 6, every day between 8.50 and 9.10am.
Kidz Club Kidz Club is an Ofsted registered limited company that forms part of All Saintsâ€™ Community package to support our families.
It is a very successful before and after school club which runs from 7.30am to 6pm every day. Children have a good selection of food, drink and activities, including computer games, DVD and TV to keep them safe and occupied. Full details are available on our web site.
Admission and Organisation Organisation The school is organised into 3 phases. Foundation Stage, EYFS. This includes our Nursery and Reception. Key Stage 1, Infant Year Groups. This includes Year 1 and Year 2 Key Stage 2, Junior Year Groups. This includes Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
STANDARD ADMISSION NUMBER: We aim to have no more than 30 children in every class. Admission Criteria for School. [Nursery is diferent]. [Please note that if your child is in nursery you need to make an application for a place in school as any other parent would do]. Oversubscription criteria for school and nursery. 2018/19 Admission number: 30 1. Looked after children. 2. Children who have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission. A brother or sister is any child living at the same address. 3. Baptized children, of a church which is a member of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, whose parents wish them to attend a church school. 4. Children living closest to school measured in a straight line as determined by the Local Authority. ***Please remember, if you want to submit supporting evidence including birth certificates, baptism and christening certificates, when requesting a school place it is parents responsibility to ensure school receive a copy, even if an application has been made â€˜on lineâ€™.*** Looked after children
‘Looked after children’ includes any child in ‘Public Care’ Previously looked after children are children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order). Applications for previously looked after children must be supported with appropriate evidence i.e. a copy of the adoption order, residence order or special guardianship order.’ Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education Health and Care Plan which names the school will be admitted first before applying the oversubscription criteria Baptism Baptism certificates will need to be seen by school. Tie-breaker If more children fall into any one criterion than the number of places left, the Governors will ofer places to the children who live nearest to the school. Distance will be measured in a straight line from the child’s home address to the front entrance door of the school, using Wigan Council’s measuring system. In cases where there are two or more children with the same distance measurement (for example if more than one child lives in a block of flats), where to admit another child would breach the infant class size regulations, a system will be used to randomly pick who will be ofered a place. Please contact the school if you would like more information about this. Childs Home address. You must give the child's correct current home address. This is where the child and parent, or carer with parental responsibility, normally live. If parents are separated and the child spends time at each parent’s address, the address we use for admission to school is that of the main carer. This is usually the address of the parent or carer who gets child benefit for the child. Late Applications Late applications [those received after the closing date] will only be considered after those received by the closing date. Waiting list Places may become available at school after the ofer date. To decide which children have these places, we will:
put all children who we refused a place at one of their preferences on the waiting list for the school; keep the list in priority order, decided by the oversubscription criteria for the school only; ofer places that become available to the next child on the waiting list; and keep the waiting list until the end of the autumn term.
Important information about the waiting list: We cannot take into account the length of time a child’s name has been on the waiting list, only the admission criteria for the school. This means that your child’s position on the list may change if another parent asks to be put on the list and their child has higher priority in the admission criteria. Deferred entry Parents can request that the date their child is admitted to the school is deferred until later in the school year or until the child reaches compulsory school age in that school year. Where entry is deferred, the place will be held open and not ofered to another child. Parents cannot defer entry
beyond the beginning of the term after the child’s fifth birthday, nor beyond the academic year for which the original application was accepted. Part-time attendance Parents can request that their child attends part-time until the child reaches compulsory school age. Nursery Classes The admission criteria for school is diferent than those for nursery. Attendance at the nursery does not guarantee admission to the school. Parents must submit an application for a place in Reception class by the closing date. Twins etc. Where there are twins, triplets wanting admissions and there is only a single place left within the admission number, then the governing body will exercise as much flexibility as possible with the requirements of infant class sizes. In exceptional circumstances we are now able to ofer places for both twins and all triplets, even when this means breaching infant class size limits. This may also apply to siblings in the same year group. Admission of children outside their normal age group Parents may seek a place for their child outside of their normal age group, for example, to a higher year group if the child is gifted and talented or to a lower year group if the child has experienced problems such as ill health. The parents of a summer born child (born between 1 April and 30 August) may choose not to send their child to school until the September following their fifth birthday and may request that they are admitted out of their normal age group – to reception rather than year 1. A decision is made on the basis of the circumstances of each case. The process is as follows: Stage 1 – request Parents make a formal request to the School in writing with any supporting evidence they wish to be considered. A request for delayed entry to reception class should be made at the same time as applying for a place for normal entry (i.e. by the closing date of 15 January) in order to give sufficient time for the case to be considered prior to the ofer of school places on 16 April. A request for in year admission outside of the normal age group should be made on the normal in year transfer form. We do not accept requests for early entry to reception class for children who will not be of statutory school age. Stage 2 – decision Requests will be considered by the School. We will look at the following factors but these are not exhaustive: Parent’s views The needs of the child and the possible impact on them of being educated out of year group The child’s medical history and views of medical professionals if appropriate In the case of children born prematurely the fact that they may have naturally fallen into the lower age group if they had been born on their expected date of birth Whether delayed academic, social, emotional or physical development is adversely afecting their readiness for school;
Stage 3 – outcome Parents are notified of the decision in writing by the School Organisation Team. Request agreed: If the request is agreed the application will be considered for the year group requested and ranked alongside any other applications. There is no guarantee that a place will be offered at the preferred school. Parents have a statutory right to appeal against the refusal of a place at a school for which they have applied. This right does not apply if they are ofered a place at the school but it is not in their preferred age group. Where a child has been educated out of their normal age group, the parent may again request admission out of the normal age group when they transfer to secondary school. It will be for the admission authority of that school to decide whether to admit the child out of their normal age group. Request refused: There is no statutory right of appeal against the refusal of a request for admission outside the normal age group. However, if the parents are dissatisfied they have the right to complain through the Council’s complaints procedure for decisions made by the local authority or under the school’s complaints procedure where the decision has been made by the school.
Other information Play equipment. We have a range of outside exercise equipment for the children to use at playtimes including a climbing wall. Children use these on a regular basis and have free access to them during playtime
Charges for School Activities Every activity and trip that the school organises is supplemented by school funds so that parents do not have to find the full cost. Whilst the Governors and Headteacher will at all times try, in good faith, to observe the law, voluntary contributions will be sought to support activities which, whilst valuable educationally, could not be supported wholly from school funds. It has always been practice in All Saints’ CE Primary School to deal sensitively and compassionately with those in genuine financial difficulty so that no child should be disadvantaged. We shall continue to use discretion with regard to remission of charges, having regard to individual circumstances. However, should voluntary funds not be sufficient, activities may have to be cancelled.
Fund Raising Throughout the year children are encouraged to raise funds for school and charitable purposes.
School Security. For security reasons there is no access through external doors after the start of the school day, except through the main front door. If children arrive after 8.50am, they should go to the front, main entrance. CCTV is used throughout school.
Friends of Hindley All Saints’ School F.O.H.A.S For many years the school has successfully supported the children and their families in many ways. The Friends of Hindley All Saints’ School exists to support the work of the school to raise funds and help in lots of small ways that enable the school to function more efficiently. For instance, parents have helped with snacks and reading. All parents and carers of children that attend school are ‘members’ of the Friends Association. As such it is hoped that you will support the many activities and events that are organised.
