We encourage parents to visit the school to look around and meet staff and pupils. The office staff will be pleased to make an appointment for you.

We aim to provide pupils with a safe, caring environment in which they can learn and develop purposefully. Our aim is for them to grow into independent, caring, thinking people. This can only be achieved when family and school work together in partnership.

During the year we send out regular newsletters, hold parent meetings and are always pleased to see parents in school. The prospectus is attached to the web site and we hope that you find website information useful but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact school.

Awards

All teachers at Leigham Primary School and Nursery have a duty to continually monitor and assess the children they are teaching.

An assessment can be in the form of an observation, a summative assessment or a formative assessment. A summative assessment demonstrates the extent of a learner's success in meeting a learning outcome and is normally given a score.

A formative assessment does not contribute to a final mark in a learning outcome, instead it contributes to learning through providing feedback. It indicates what is good about a piece of work and why this is good; as well as how the work could be improved.

These assessments are continuously used to inform and review whole class planning and teaching.

Progress will also be monitored by the Assessment Coordinator through tracking of data on School Pupil Tracker and Pupil Progress Meetings.

A pupil is perceived as 'falling behind' if they are not making adequate progress as suggested in the revised SEN Code of Practice.
