Admissions Arrangements

Children are admitted into school in accordance with Oxfordshire County Council admissions arrangements which are published on the County Council website here.  You can find further information about our admissions, including our Admissions Policy here.


Attendance

There is a clear link between pupils’ achievement and their level of attendance at school. The governors and staff, alongside the LA, firmly believe that all pupils benefit from regular attendance. We want all pupils to achieve the very best they can and for this they need to be in school regularly.

  • To this end we will do all we can to encourage parents/carers to ensure that the children in their care achieve maximum possible attendance and that any problems that prevent full attendance are identified and acted on promptly.
  • The School will provide the attendance record of each child at parent consultation meetings during the year and provide a Certification of Registration for the school academic year with each child’s annual report. The School will also reward pupils with outstanding records.

You can find out further information about attendance here.


Behaviour Policy

Our Behaviour Policy is the statement of principles, aims and strategies for promoting positive behaviour at Woodstock CE Primary School. We believe a shared commitment from parents, governors and the wider community is an important factor in promoting good behaviour and the fostering of positive attitudes. As a school we ensure that parents and carers are fully informed of our approach to behaviour management by communicating it through the School Prospectus, Home-School Agreement, newsletters and the School’s website. 

Please click here to view our Behaviour Policy.


Charging & Remissions Policy

Woodstock CE Primary School believes that all our pupils should have an equal opportunity to benefit from school activities and visits (curricular and extra curricular) independent of their parents’ financial means. This charging and remissions policy describes how we will do our best to ensure a good range of visits and activities is offered and, at the same time, try to minimise the financial barriers which may prevent some pupils taking full advantage of the opportunities.

Please click here to view our Charging & Remissions Policy.


Collective Worship

Legal Requirements

The Education Reform Act 1988 requires that all schools have a daily act of worship, either together as a whole school or in smaller groups.  As a Christian Foundation we follow the traditions and values of the Church of England.  In a multi-faith society we aim to encourage the children’s understanding and respect for other faiths.  Worship will be distinctively Christian in character, whilst acknowledging religious and cultural diversity existing in society and the wide beliefs of the local community.

Please click here to view our Christian Distinctiveness area of the website and our Collective Worship Policy.


Complaints Procedure

It is in everyone’s interest that complaints are resolved at the earliest possible stage. Many issues can be resolved informally, without the need to invoke formal procedures. As a school we take informal concerns seriously and make every effort to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.

There are occasions when complainants would like to raise their concerns formally. In these cases, the school’s formal procedure should be invoked.  

Our School Complaints Procedure and Policy can be found here.

Governors' Information and Duties

As a school we are very proud of our governors who take their duties very seriously and give up their time in the interests of the whole-school community.  They make an important contribution to raising standards and maintain high aspiration.

It is a statutory requirement that details of the structure and responsibilities of the Governing Body and its committees are available to all, and for all Governors to record any business, financial and other governance interests held either personally or through a company or relative or partner.

To find out further information about the Governing Body at Woodstock CE Primary School,  please visit our Governor area here.


OFSTED & SIAMS Reports

OFSTED is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are responsible for inspecting and regulating schools, pre-schools, nurseries, and any services caring for children and young people, as well as those providing education and skills for learners of all ages. A list of Woodstock CE Primary School's most recent inspection reports can be found here or you can visit our Ofted area of our website for further information.


PE & Sports Premium

PE & Sport Premium is funding provided to primary schools to enhance the provision of PE and sport. The Government has committed to keeping the funding in place until 2020. It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport funding is spent. 

Please click here to find out further information about the Sports Premium Funding and view our annual report.

Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Please visit our Pupil Premium area of the website to find out further information and view our Pupil Premium Strategy.


Reading & Phonics

At Woodstock CE Primary School we use the synthetics phonics programme ‘Read, Write Inc.’. Children begin phonics on day one in our Nursery and Reception Classes and are taught daily in small groups. Alongside the groups, teachers will refer to the RWInc programme throughout the day, for example referring to a speed sound or green or red word at any given time. Please visit our English Guidance of the website to find out further information by following this link.


Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy

The Governing Body of Woodstock CE Primary School takes its responsibility under section 11 of the Children Act and duties under “working together” to safeguard and promote the welfare of children very seriously. We work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements exist within our setting to identify, and support those children who are suffering harm or are likely to suffer harm.  Please read our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy here.


Special Educational Needs (SEN) & Disability Information

Children  with SEN all have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. These children may need extra or different help from that given to others.

You can view our SEND Annual Report, SEND Policy, SEND Guidance, Accessibility Plan and further information about the SEND Local Offer here.
