Winchcombe Abbey C of E Primary School

At Winchcombe Abbey, we work on the basis that education is very much a partnership between home and school and as such, we want to work closely with you to ensure your child is happy in school and achieves his or her full potential. As well as pursuing academic excellence, we work hard to help children grow and flourish as confident individuals with high personal aspirations and a lifelong love of learning.

Our church school community is founded on a strong ethos of mutual respect, care and trust. We have eight Core Values which underpin all of our work and our beliefs. These core values are Compassion, Courage, Respect, Responsibility, Humility, Forgiveness, Truth and Fairness. Click on the 'School Values' tab above to find out more. We believe in giving children responsibility at an early age and many visitors and members of the public comment positively on our children's excellent behaviour and attitudes.

Learning in our school is developed through a curriculum that is both rich and vibrant, containing many first hand experiences which help to put the children’s learning into context; artists, musicians, actors, clergy, charity representatives, as well as sportsmen and women are all regular visitors to the school.

Inevitably, a website can only give a snapshot of a school and we would encourage you to make an appointment to come and visit us so you can see our very special school in action. We would be delighted to show you around and provide you with a chance to meet our children, talk to the staff and view the environment in which we learn, work and play.

All children's needs are met within our school and we aim to ensure access for all to the curriculum as appropriate.

Daily liaison between the parent and school is led by the class teacher. This is supported by the SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) as appropriate.

Children’s needs and access to the curriculum, including any Education, Health and Care Plans are regularly reviewed during our pupil progress meetings, with the relevant class teachers and their classroom team. Our SENCo and Deputy Headteachers ensure that our accessibility plan is regularly reviewed and is appropriate for the needs of the pupils in our school. As a result of this, class teachers are able to plan support appropriately for the individuals in their class.

In our school, support is delivered by our well qualified support teachers as well as our class teachers. Occasionally, specialist teachers and services may be used to complement this provision.

Additional support is given to children in a variety of different ways:

Through a differentiated curriculum, breaking down the learning into smaller manageable chunks.

Through support from qualified adults who work with a small group of pupils on a focused aspect of learning. This may be in or out of the classroom, depending on need.

One to one support as appropriate

Use of appropriate resources to allow the child to access the curriculum eg laptops, enhanced text, magnifiers or surround sound system.

For children with specific learning needs, visual timetables, social stories, pre teaching, sensory awareness and breaks may be used to ensure access to the curriculum.
