WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL
The school caters for all children in the Charmouth, Monkton Wyld, Wootton Fitzpaine, Whitchurch Canonicorum, Ryall and Morcombelake areas from the ages of 5 - 11 years. There is invariably pressure for places at the school and so it is important for parents to register with the school their intention to send their child as soon as possible after they have made their decision.
Children can enter school on a part-time basis for five mornings a week in the September prior to their fifth birthday. All children attend full time from January each year.
The School's admission policy is in line with the County's policy for County Primary Schools as set out in Information Booklet No. 1, Sections 2 and 3.
- create a caring environment in which happy, peaceful and co-operative relationships exist between all people involved with the school
- recognise and celebrate the outstanding environments in which we live and encourage the whole school community to respect and sustain them
- ensure that children are given their full entitlement to the National Curriculum by providing enriching and stimulating learning experiences which enable them to develop as rounded individuals
- have high expectations of all our children in order that high standards are achieved
- encourage children to understand the feelings of others, to respect their values and to consider thoughtfully their own attitudes, values and beliefs
The National Curriculum is made up of 11 subjects.
There are 3 core subjects – English, Maths and Science.
English and Maths is taught mainly through the recently introduced Literacy and Numeracy strategies.
Information and Communications Technology
This is a subject in its own right, but it also aids the teaching of all areas of the curriculum. The school is connected to the Internet and has been successful in securing National Grid for Learning funding to provide computers for a dedicated ICT facility.
Religious Education follows the Dorset agreed Syllabus. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education and collective worship. However, in recent years, no parent has chosen to avail themselves of this option.
The foundation curriculum consists of History, Geography, Design and Technology, Music, Art and PE
We have a thriving set of extra curricular activities. There are also Football, Netball, Hockey, Rugby and Story Clubs after school during the winter terms. Athletics, Tennis and Cricket take place in the Summer Term. These clubs, taken voluntarily by members of staff, start at 3:30 pm and go on until approximately 4:15 pm. We also offer French and German classes which are run by outside teachers and there is a charge for these.
We take part in local football and netball tournaments.
