The Primary Years
We would like to extend a very warm welcome to our school. We hope that you find this information helpful and that it gives you a taste of the happy, industrious school that we are.
At St. Anne’s we believe that the Primary phase of education is of utmost importance in a child's learning journey. It is a time when we aim to nurture in all of our children a lifelong love of learning.
Everyone at St. Anne’s is committed to providing a caring and friendly school, a happy place to learn because happy children make engaged learners who will become equipped with the skills to achieve their very best. We promote the highest standards of achievement by all pupils regardless of ability, religion, ethnic origin or gender. We encourage children to think for themselves, placing emphasis on problem solving, decision making and becoming independent learners.
Children's enthusiasm for learning is fostered, as is their pride in their achievements and pride in the school community. Individual efforts are valued and celebrated in an atmosphere that encourages self and mutual respect.
Confidence in a school comes from knowing and understanding what is happening within it. We expect parents to take advantage of the opportunities throughout the year to visit the school on occasions such as Concerts, Carol services, Parents’ workshops, Sports’ days and Shows, as well as the parent-
St. Anne’s aspires to be easily accessible to parents. A successful school is one where there is a partnership between school and home.
When children join our school, they will enjoy themselves, thrive and achieve their best in our stimulating learning environment. We take full advantage of our installations and use every opportunity to provide motivating activities which will stretch your child's imagination and allow them to learn through these first hand experiences.
On completion of the Foundation Stage, our pupils commence their Primary education, which is grouped into two Key Stages. Our pupils are expected to achieve the objectives stipulated in the National Curriculum when they reach the end of each Key Stage. In the Foundation Stage, the children are immersed in an English speaking environment and some will start to blend sound and read simple sentences. In Year 1 our pupils begin the process of learning to read and write in Spanish. French is introduced as a third language in Year 5, once English and Spanish are well established.
Code of Behaviour
Each class creates a set of class rules at the beginning of the school year, which everyone involved agrees will assist learning and facilitate a happy classroom environment. In addition, there are school rules and values which are contained in the school handbook.
There is an expectation of high standards of personal behaviour and respect for others, which we expect parents to encourage and support.
Children's achievements are celebrated in special assemblies held every month. The pupils find this very motivating. Rewards also include stickers, certificates, praise and the opportunity to share their work with other children and staff. Considerate behaviour is also noticed and rewarded at break and lunch times.
Everyone has the right to:
feel safe, cared for and respected
be able to learn to the best of his/her ability and to develop whatever skills he/she possesses
be treated equally irrespective of gender, race, physical characteristics or any other factors
learn and play without disruption.
Everyone is expected to:
be responsible for their own behaviour
respect the rights of others.
