Coleshill Heath School Head Teacher Personal Statement
Teaching & Learning policy
School Aim Statement:
Coleshill Church of England Primary School & Nursery is a voluntary aided Church of England school. All staff and governors aim to make the school a place where Christian love and commitment are expressed in everyday life.
We aim therefore to provide a happy, caring, safe and stimulating school where everyone is valued and there is a high level of expectation in all aspects of school life.
All children will have access to the Early Years Foundation Stage, the National Curriculum, R.E. and the broader curriculum through a wide range of educational opportunities, enabling them to reach their full potential.
We will encourage partnerships with parents, governors, the church and the local community.
Through these aims we hope that children will become active, healthy and responsible members of society.
This policy has been drafted by the headteacher and deputy headteacher after staff discussion.
Statement of Intent
We acknowledge that our delivery of the curriculum (in its widest sense) is affected by our aims and values. Everyone in the school (adults and children) should model our values. We should all be aware that our ethos will have a significant impact on raising pupil achievement, because the way people feel about themselves affects the way they are able to participate in school life and achieve their potential. We endorse the statement in the National Curriculum “The school curriculum should pass on enduring values, develop pupils’ integrity and autonomy and help them to be responsible and caring citizens”. Our code of conduct is intended to help us achieve our goals. All adults should carry out their roles in the classroom confidently and competently.
- To provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum, appropriate to the needs, abilities and aptitudes of the pupils, enabling children to achieve their full potential.
- To provide continuity in learning.
- To provide active learning experiences.
- To communicate clearly with pupils.
- To place new learning in the context of previous experience and apply it to other situations.
- To share a clear sense of purpose (identifying the learning objective) with the learner.
- To have clear expectations of pupils, shared with them.
- To develop confident, disciplined and enquiring learners, able to make informed choices.
- To foster self esteem.
- To encourage children to take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour and to become independent learners.
- To recognise that people learn in different ways and to select strategies appropriate to the learning purpose of the lesson.
- To facilitate considerate and positive relationships between all members of the school community.
- To provide a safe and happy workplace.
- To promote a thoughtful attitude towards the immediate and wider environment.
And above all to encourage an enthusiasm for learning lasts a lifetime.
Equal Opportunities and Special Needs
In line with the special needs’ and equal opportunities’ policies of the school, we will value everybody equally, irrespective of race, gender or ability.
We acknowledge the importance of parents’ contributions to enable children to learn effectively by:
- supporting the school aims
- ensuring that children attend school regularly and are punctual
- ensuring that children have the correct equipment for lessons
- providing a quiet environment and support for children to complete homework tasks
Opportunities for reporting on pupils’ progress will be through open evenings, parents’ evenings, reports and by telephone or letter if appropriate.
This policy is a working document. The Management team will review it triennially.

How do we rate this school?
|Rating||2017 Rating||2016 Rating|
|England Rank||12,526 (out of 14,624)||14,190 (out of 14,459)|
|Data missing (out of 48)||4|
Our unique rating system takes into account a range of different indicators to evaluate a school's performance. The system tracks achievement, pupil progress, teaching, pupil attendance and whether the school is improving.
The 2017 KS2 tests were assessing a new curriculum that was introduced in 2014. Ratings for years before 2016 were based on how the school performed on the previous curriculum so performance is not directly comparable to 2017.
Data may be missing for some indicators because it has not been published. This may be because the school is new or because it is very small so data has been suppressed to avoid identifying individual pupils. Schools do not lose points for missing data, so will still fare better in the ranking than schools that underperform on that indicator, but they cannot score as highly as schools that perform well on the indicator.
