Welcome to our school This booklet is to tell parents and prospective parents something about our school. The school is situated in its own grounds in a beautiful part of Hexhamshire. The building contains an entrance hall, assembly hall, office, kitchen, group room, classrooms and toilets. The purpose built Early Years Unit for 3 to 7 year olds provides excellent flexible facilities for practical work, role play and formal teaching. Outside the children have the use of two playgrounds, a playing field and an adventure playground as well as a wild wooded area. We have strong links with the local community, and have regular use of the newly built Parish playground next to the school . In Whitley Chapel Church of England First School we work hard to make our pupils‘ first experience of education the best it can be. The key strengths of the school are its academic standards, its strong Christian ethos and links with the church and community, and the positive relationships between the children. 

‗Achievement is good because the expectations of pupils are high‘

‗Pupils‘ personal development, including their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding‘

‗It is clear that a happy, family atmosphere is successfully fostered in school‘ Ofsted 2009

I hope that you will feel welcome to come and visit our happy, friendly school and see for yourself what a lovely place it is for your child to start their education.

Introduction This prospectus provides information concerning the school, as required by the 1980 Education Act, for parents of pupils who are expected to enter the school from within the catchment area, and also for other parents who wish to know about the opportunities available. Information concerning the general arrangements in Northumberland is given separately in a County booklet, copies of which are available for parents of pupils who are starting or transferring schools next September. This information can also be found on the Northumberland County Council website. All parents either within or outside the school's catchment area who wish their children to attend the school need to submit an application by completing a Common Application Form (copies of which are obtainable from the school or the County Education Office) and return it to the school by January. Northumberland County Council will inform them whether a place at the school is available for their child. Applications may also be made online at www.northumberland.gov.uk Requests for places in September 2012 should officially be received by the school or Northumberland County Council by 14th January 2012 at the latest. Up to 10 children may be admitted to Reception in the year 2012 - 2013; however this number can be increased with the agreement of the Governing Body if numbers in the year groups on either side are lower than 10. Children from the school, which serves the area of the High and Middle quarters and part of the Low Quarter of Hexhamshire, usually transfer at the age of 9+ to Hexham Middle School or St Joesph‘s RC Middle School, Hexham, and then at the age of 13+ to Queen Elizabeth High School, Hexham. Children from outside the catchment area who belong to the Ecclesiastical Parish of Whitley Chapel will always be especially welcomed, though official transport may not necessarily be available. The details contained in this prospectus are correct at the time of printing. Documents relating to meetings of Governors, the Annual Meeting of Governors with Parents and the Statutory Complaints Procedure are available in school, as are National Curriculum documents, school policies and curriculum guidelines.

Mission Statement Whitley Chapel is a Church of England school serving a rural community. Our aim is to provide an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice, in a happy, secure and well-disciplined environment. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promote Christian values through the experience we offer to all our pupils. We work together with our parish and diocese to develop the religious character of our school in keeping with our historic foundations.

Aims We aim to provide an environment in which children can develop good work and play habits, enabling them: (a)

to gain essential knowledge and acquire the basic skills in all subjects of the National Curriculum and RE,

(b)

to use these skills to express themselves fluently with imagination and understanding in words, numbers and materials,

(c)

to develop an appreciation of art, music, literature and drama,

(d)

to gain confidence in their physical dexterity, and to acquire games and movement skills, as part of encouraging a healthy lifestyle,

(e)

to gain a firm foundation of Christian spiritual values, a sense of responsibility, and consideration for others.

We aim to provide work appropriate for each child's level of ability and maturity so that all children will be using their capabilities to the full. Those children who may have a specific learning or physical difficulties will have individual programmes developed to address their needs. We encourage children to take responsibility for their own actions, to review and assess their own work, and to encourage and support each other within the school community. We want them to leave Whitley Chapel First School with the confidence, enthusiasm and skills to benefit fully from the wider experiences of Middle School life.

Admission and School Organisation Children will be admitted to Nursery the term after their 3rd birthday. They will be offered 5 mornings from 9 am until 12.00 am. They are admitted to mainstream schooling in the September of the school year in which they are 5. Nursery and Reception are based in the Early Years Unit, Years 1 and 2 in Class 2, and Years 3 and 4 in Class 3. However, the relatively small number of children in the school allows a certain flexibility, and classes are re-grouped from time to time, enabling those with special needs, abilities and interests to be given short periods of more individual help .

Curriculum Foundation Stage 3 years to 5 years old The purpose built Early Years Unit gives scope for role play, construction, art and craft work, games, topic, number, writing and reading. From 10.30 am until 10. 45 am children play outside. Further information about activities and curriculum may be obtained from the Headteacher.

Key Stage 1 and 2 The three core subjects, English, Mathematics, and Science together with the foundation subjects, Design Technology, Information Communication Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art, Physical Education and Religious Education provide a broad, balanced curriculum. Teaching in Foundation Stage is through cross-curricular topics and individual subjects at a level appropriate to the abilities of the child. All subjects are organised in accordance with the National Curriculum. Literacy and Numeracy are taught in the mornings, and the remaining subjects in the afternoons. The curriculum is enhanced during the year with specific curriculum days or weeks, workshops and activities with other schools in the Hexham Partnership.

Special Educational Needs A pupil is defined as having Special Educational Needs if he or she has a learning difficulty which requires special educational provision or individual provision to be made for him or her. All pupils with SEN at Whitley Chapel First School have their needs addressed through a broad and balanced education. We ensure that pupils with SEN engage in all the regular activities of our school so far as is reasonably practicable and is compatible with the pupil receiving the special provision their learning difficulty calls for. In meeting our responsibilities we have regard to the SEN Code of Practice and the SEN Strategy of the Local Authority. We aim for the early identification of needs through the continuous assessment of basic skills, particularly in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy and personal, social and emotional development so that children can be supported appropriately as soon as possible. Parents are encouraged to let the school know if they have concerns about any area of their child‘s development. Individual education programmes are prepared and reviewed in line with the Code. At every stage of our work within Special Educational Needs, parents are kept informed and all information is regarded as highly confidential. Once any child is identified as having a special need an individual education programme is prepared by the member of staff responsible for SEN in liaison with parents and class teachers. This programme contains set targets for the child and it is reviewed on a regular basis. Where a formal Statement of SEN is in place, we ensure that the child receives the provision that has been identified. The Headteacher as SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) 8


Page 9

supports class teachers and children working within structured Individual Education Plans. She coordinates the work of all other professionals who may be involved in supporting a particular child. All adults responsible for the child at any time are given copies of individual programmes of work so that the best support and expertise can be utilised for the benefit of the child. Some children receive individual tuition or small group tuition from non-class based staff. As part of our School Improvement Plan we have a Disability Access Audit and Action Plan. As any work is done to develop our premises the DDA is always considered to ensure that we make our school accessible. Copies are available from school.

English 1) Speaking and Listening Children are encouraged to express themselves through a variety of activities to encourage speech and language, such as drama, role play, use of ‗talk partners‘ and storytelling. 2) Reading Children are taught reading initially by means of a mixture of phonics and word recognition, and progress through a structured reading programme and Guided Reading activities in class until they are able to read fluently and independently for their own instruction and enjoyment. 3) Writing All aspects of English are cross-curricular, but direct teaching of English skills is during the Literacy Hour. Pupils follow the National Literacy Strategy, learning how to model their own writing on a variety of different texts, with special emphasis being given on adventurous vocabulary and use of punctuation. Pupils have regular practice in handwriting, and learn spelling patterns from the ‗Letters and Sounds‘ programme.

Mathematics 1) Use and application Pupils are given opportunities to use their knowledge, skills and understanding in practical tasks, in real-life problems and investigations within mathematics.

INVESTIGATING 2D SHAPES DURING MATHS WEEK

2) Number Following the National Numeracy Strategy, pupils are taught how to understand number, including estimation, interpreting results and checking for reasonable answers. They learn the relationships between numbers and how to develop methods of computation and recognise patterns and symbols. Regular practice is given with learning number bonds and multiplication tables to encourage confidence and enable quick recall of number facts.


Page 10

3) Shape, space and measures Pupils are taught how to recognise and use 2D and 3D shape, and learn to understand and use measures through a variety of practical activities and real-life problems. 4) Data handling Pupils are taught how to collect, process and interpret data in different ways and formats, and use it to assess probability. Direct teaching of mathematical concepts is taught during the dedicated Numeracy Hour, but pupils are encouraged to apply their mathematical knowledge and skills wherever possible across all areas of the curriculum to reinforce the fact that mathematics is essential in everything we do.

Science Pupils are taught Science through a cycle of topics that cover the 4 main areas: 1) Experimental and Investigative They are encouraged to use a practical approach to finding out about their surroundings and develop an understanding of scientific methods and ideas. 2) Life and Living Processes Pupils learn through practical observation, by investigating the wildlife in the local environment or by research on the internet or in library books. 3) Materials and their Properties They develop their understanding of the properties and classification of materials by looking at different rocks and fossils, and find out the ways in which materials can be changed by means of experiments to observe the different effects of heat and water. 4) Physical Processes Pupils learn how to construct electric circuits and test the conductivity of different materials, and construct their own experiments to learn about forces, sound, light and the Solar System.

Design and Technology Pupils carry out a wide variety of practical design tasks using different materials for different purposes. They learn how to plan a design, how to carry it out, how to evaluate its success and how to modify or improve it.

Information Communication Technology Pupils are taught to use ICT equipment confidently and purposefully to communicate and handle information and to record and express their work. There are eleven PCs in school for pupil use, as well as laptop computers, digital cameras, a digital blue video camera, webcams, and interactive white boards in each classroom. Pupils are taught safe and responsible use of the internet, and are given regular instruction in e-safety. The school has a website, which publishes news about activities and special events in school, and examples of USING A DATA PROGRAMME IN pupils‘ work. Parents are asked to give their written permission for pupils‘ photographs to be published on the website or in the public domain.

MATHS

Geography Pupils are taught geographical skills through the study of their own local area and by comparison with other areas in Britain and around the world. They learn how to use maps and how to research climate by use of the internet or practical observation.

History Pupils are taught about important episodes and developments in British history from Roman to modern times and about ancient civilisation, in order to develop a chronological framework and understanding of life in the past. Wherever possible their learning is supported by visits to museums and sites of historical interest to allow them to experience history first hand.

Art We have successfully achieved an Arts Mark Gold Award. This is a magnificent achievement for a small school and a recognition of the effort, talent and skills of the teaching staff as well as the support the Community shows us. Our school has a great commitment to the Arts and encourages professionals in to work with the children.

Music Pupils understanding and enjoyment of music are developed through the activities of performing and composing, listening and appraising. Pupils are encouraged to perform in assemblies, school productions and music festivals. They are given the opportunity to learn Keyboards and Recorders with a peripatetic teacher from Northumberland County Council Music Services.


Page 12

Religious Education Daily acts of Collective Worship and religious education have always played an important role in school, and are attended by children of all denominations. We encourage visits from representatives of various local churches to our assemblies, and the vicar of St Helen‘s Church leads a weekly act of Collective Worship. The school follows the Diocesan RE syllabus, and pupils are also taught about the main beliefs of the Jewish and Muslim faiths, as well as other multicultural festivals and celebrations. However, parents do have the right to withdraw their children from these activities, and should inform the Headteacher if they wish to do this.

PE Pupils are taught four main areas: games, gymnastic activities, dance and swimming. Reception and Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 children receive swimming instruction at Hexham Pool SPORTS DAY in the Spring and Summer term. P.E. Sports Coordinators from the Hexham Partnership of schools give specialist support, and encourage participation in displays and competitive events with other local schools. We have been awarded the Healthy Schools Award in recognition of the variety of PE activities we offer and the way in which pupils are encouraged to lead a healthy lifestyle.

French French is taught to Class 3 weekly by Mrs J Hughes.

Sex and Relationship Education The school uses a scheme of work called ―Godfrey and Lucinda‖, which teaches basic health and hygiene and simple physical differences between boys and girls. It aims to prepare pupils for the changes they will undergo during puberty, and to help them understand healthy and loving relationships within the family unit and school setting. It is introduced in a way appropriate to the pupil's stage of development and is presented within a moral, family orientated, and Christian framework. However, it does not cover the facts of life, and the Governing Body does not consider that this would be appropriate for the pupils of the age group taught at this school. More detailed information on Curriculum policies and schemes of work are available in school.


Page 13

Extra-Curricular Activities After School Clubs are offered in the second half of the Spring term and the Summer term and can range from Gardening, Trampolining, Dance, Kick Boxing and Football. They are run by teachers, parent volunteers and coaches from the Extended Schools Partnership, and vary according to interest and availability. Support from parents is always welcome, and regular commitment from pupils is needed to make after school clubs viable.

Homework Parental encouragement and interest is of great importance. Initially the children are encouraged to play games with word cards and letter sounds at home and to share books. As children get older parental help with reading, spelling, number bonds, tables and playing maths games would be appreciated. Children in years 3 & 4 will also be asked to complete Literacy and Numeracy work weekly, and research topics. They are encouraged to change their library books regularly and the Library van visits the school fortnightly on a Tuesday. A bag to carry these belongings to and from school is essential. Book bags can be purchased at the school office.

Assessment Children are the assessed on entering Nursery and on entering mainstream school using National Foundation Stage Profile. At the end of Key Stage 1, Teacher Assessments for English, Maths and Science are reported to the Local Authority, and these are supported by SATs tests in English and Maths. The teacher Assessments are reported to parents with the Annual Report of Pupil Progress at the end of the Summer term. QCA Optional SATs Tests are used with Years 3 and 4 in English and Maths to complement teacher assessments made using the Assessing Pupil Progress (APP) framework. Children in Class 2 and 3 are regularly tested on spellings, number bonds and tables. Teacher assessment in all curricula areas is continuous but not stressful .

Pupil’s Progress Parents will be invited to come to school to discuss their child's progress termly and a written report will be sent home at the end of the school year when parents will be given the opportunity to attend individual interviews. If it is felt necessary, further discussions take place during the year.


Page 14

Pastoral Care and Discipline School rules are regularly discussed in Collective Worship and School Council in order to ensure the health and safety of everyone in school. We encourage pupils to become responsible members of our school community by involving them in formulating their own classroom rules and discussing their effectiveness. We expect all children to be polite and well-mannered and show consideration to others. Misbehaviour in school is dealt with by a scolding or the temporary withdrawal of a privilege. If misbehaviour is persistent then parents are invited to school to discuss the matter. Positive behaviour is rewarded with table points or stars, ―Good Work‖ certificates and stickers and ―Top Table‖ awards for lunchtimes. Children are expected to be punctual. To avoid accidents in the car park, children must be collected from the school playground at the end of the afternoon, and escorted to their car by an adult. It is important that any change in arrangements are notified to the school. There is no vehicular access onto the school grounds between 8:45 and 9:15, and between 3:00 and 3:30.

Charges for School Activities The policy of this school complies with the Policy of Northumberland County Council Education Committee. In brief, no charge will be made, but the school would be grateful for voluntary contributions to cover some costs. However, no child will be excluded from any activity in school hours, if no voluntary contribution has been made.


Page 15

School Uniform Children are expected to wear clean clothes which are comfortable and appropriate to the weather. The school uniform consists of the following: School Sweatshirt:

Bottle Green (available in school)

Skirt, Trousers, Shorts:

Black/Grey

Dresses: Striped/checked:

Green/Yellow

Polo Shirts:

Green/Yellow

Polo Neck Jersey Top:

Yellow

Tights:

Green/Grey

Socks:

Grey/White

Flat shoes/sandals

Black/Green

For Physical Education each child needs a bag containing a shirt, shorts and sand shoes (not plastic soled please). In addition the older children require suitable outdoor games clothing to change into, for example, trainers, track suit bottoms and sweat shirt. Children may not wear jewellery and should not bring expensive items of personal property to school. The school cannot guarantee the safety of such items and the Authority cannot accept any responsibility for the loss or theft of pupils' personal property. All property should be clearly marked with the child's name. Wellingtons, especially, should be clearly named, and it is a help if they can be pegged together with a clothes peg.

Parents in School There is a close and happy link between home and school. Children are encouraged to take parents into the classroom to show them anything in which they have a particular interest. Parents come into school to help in a variety of ways. Anyone willing to offer help, please contact the school. Regular parent volunteers will be required to undergo a Criminal Records Bureau check. Parents should not hesitate to come and discuss anything that is troubling them or their child. Sometimes quite trivial things can be very worrying to children and are best sorted out as quickly as possible. An after-school meeting with the teachers will normally be best, as all teachers are fully engaged with a class all day.


Page 16

For the same reason, it would be much appreciated if telephone calls could be restricted to before or after school, or to lunch time (12.00 noon - 1.00 pm), or during Secretary's hours Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8.30 am to 3.30 pm. Friends of Whitley Chapel School meet regularly so that fundraising events may be organised.

Community Whitley Chapel is a small but thriving close-knit community. Pupils are encouraged to participate in Community activities and members of the community are encouraged to support school events. We maintain close links with the Mother and Toddler Group for pre-school children which meets on Friday afternoons from 1.30 am. All mothers with babies and toddlers are very welcome. Please contact the school for further information. The Sunday Club meets on Sunday mornings from 9.30 until 10.15 am when it joins the congregation in Church. The 'Shire Sports and Activities Club organise a range of activities for first school age children.

School Meals A two course meal is provided daily. Menus are designed to meet the nutritional requirements of young children and to introduce a wide variety of food. Social training is also an important aspect of the lunch period. Visits from parents to see the lunch arrangements are welcomed. Provision can be made for those children who bring a packed lunch. If a child is to change from packed lunches to school dinners, or vice versa, the school requires a minimum of a week's notice other than in an emergency. Milk can be provided at a small extra cost. Dinner money should be brought on Monday morning, and it would be appreciated if this, and any other money brought to school, could be kept in a named purse or envelope. Arrangements can be made for dinner and milk payments by cheque, half-termly in advance. For further information, please contact the School Secretary.


Page 17

Transport If a child is eligible for school transport it is the parents' responsibility to inform the car or minibus driver concerned if their child will not be using transport on any occasion, and also to ensure that their child is ready at the appointed time and place. In turn, the drivers will inform parents of any change in timing. This close liaison is especially important in periods of bad weather. If you have any queries concerning transport please contact the School Transport Officer, Northumberland County Council, County Hall, Morpeth, Northumberland, NE61 2EF. Telephone Number 01670 533670.

School Health Service The school Nurse visits school and advises teaching staff on health matters, and to talk about any children who are causing concern to their teachers or parents. During these visits, she is happy to see any parent who has any concern about the child's well-being, no matter how slight the worry may be. From time to time she will ask to see particular children with existing medical problems, although no child will be seen without parents' consent. In addition, certain immunisations are available: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio Boosters, BCG (Tuberculosis) and Rubella (German Measles). These will be offered to particular groups of children at the appropriate time. The Audiometrician tests children on entry into school. If you wish to see School Nurse at any time, please contact her by letter or telephone her at the following address: School Nurse: Sarah Lambton, Corbridge Health Centre, Tel No; 01434 636939 DATA PROTECTION AND SCHOOL HEALTH SERVICE For many years schools and the School Health Service have worked together to ensure that all children in school are offered immunisation, health surveillance, advice and support. To do this the School Health Service and Dental Service needs a population database– an up-to-date list of all children attending school. This is used to provide programmes, including immunisation against tuberculosis (BCG) and meningitis C and hearing and vision screening. In response to changes in the Data Protection Act we are required to ensure that parents know that the school give your child‘s name and date of birth to the School Health Service and Dental Service for this purpose. This information will be shared unless you advise the Headteacher in writing that you do not wish this to happen. Information about the service offered by School Health are detailed in the information leaflet that you will receive when your child starts school. Further copies, if required, can be obtained from the school nurse. Please note that no immunisation is carried out without a signed consent form from the parent or guardian.


Page 18

Arrangements in Case of Accidents or Illness In the event of a child becoming ill, or having an accident at School, the Headteacher will need to contact the parents quickly. You are asked therefore to give the school a telephone number (or address) of an EMERGENCY CONTACT, in case you cannot be reached at home. If no-one can be contacted staff will act "in loco parentis"). If a child has any long term health problems, the school needs written details of these, and any action likely to be required.

Coughs and sneezes , sickness and diarrhoea‌ it is important that children do not return to school too soon after illness to help prevent the spread of infection to others. We recommend you keep children off for at least 48 hours after sickness, diarrhoea, flu etc.

Absence from School It is important that children attend school regularly and punctually. If your child is absent from school please inform a member of staff by telephone or on returning to school a note of explanation. Unauthorised absences must be reported by school. Holidays during term time are strongly discouraged as they can be very disruptive to children‘s programmes of study. Permission to take pupils out of school during term time must be obtained from the Headteacher. Parents are asked particularly to avoid taking holidays during May because SATS and end of year tests are done during this month. All schools in the Hexham Partnership subscribe to the same Absence policy. Parents are reminded that there is no entitlement for them to take children out of school on holiday, and absences will not be authorised unless there are very exceptional circumstances.

Unauthorised Absence There were no unauthorised absences during the year .


Page 19

END OF KEY STAGE 1 Assessments The Teacher Assessments for Key Stage 1 pupils at Whitley Chapel School are not given as there are fewer than 10 pupils.

School Website The school has a website at www.whitleyfirst.northumberland.sch.uk/ . We encourage pupils to contribute to the school blog, and to use it to showcase their work and achievements. From time to time we like to show photos of what is happening in school. Parents will be asked for permission to show these photos on the internet; and are requested to make it clear if they would prefer pictures of their child not to be published.

Before and After School Care A Breakfast Club runs daily in school from 8.00 am—9.00 am for all pupils. Charges are £3.00 a session, and include a light breakfast of cereal and toast. Whilst exceptions may be made in cases of emergency, parents are asked to book at least one day in advance as numbers are limited. It is intended to start an After School Club by the end of 2011, which will run until 6.00 pm. This will be available for pupils from Reception Class upwards. Further information will appear on the school website as soon as it is available. In the meantime. We have an arrangement with Little Badgers After School Club at Slaley First School to collect children from Whitley Chapel and take them to Slaley where parents can pick them up at their convenience. The telephone number for Little Badgers is: 01434 676 817
