Shakespeare Primary School

We are a large primary school with a strong family ethos where the children are at the heart of everything we do. Our school is a welcoming, modern and friendly place to be where each person is important and valued. We encourage caring for everyone and everything and we challenge and inspire our children to be the best they can be.

Here at Shakespeare, we offer full and varied range of learning activities, presented through a thematic curriculum which is enhanced through visiting authors, artists and sports people.  We make learning exciting and regularly take our learning outside, making good use of our outdoor spaces on site, as well as making regular trips to Woodland Woods and Ham Woods.

Children’s progress is constantly monitored and assessed and careful records are kept.

Occasionally we find that a child does not make the progress we expect. If this were the case, parents would be consulted and appropriate steps taken, to support the child.

An Individual Education Plan may be made with individual targets, review dates and ideas to help parents to support their child at home. If targets continue not to be met, outside agencies such as Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists or Communication Interaction Specialists may be called upon for extra support.

After further consultation with parents the Local Authority (LA) may have to make a statutory assessment based on specialist advice. The LA may then draw up a Statement of Special Educational Needs. This describes all of the child’s needs and all the special help that should be provided.

Parents will always be consulted and kept fully informed at every stage once we have identified that their child could benefit from some extra help. This could be for educational, personal or social needs. Our assessment procedures will also identify children of very high academic ability, whereby additional challenges and enrichment opportunities will be planned to meet the learning requirements of these children. Talented pupils will be encouraged to join clubs and societies outside of school to help extend their talents further.
