Fifth Avenue Primary School is a community primary co-educational school catering for approximately 530 children. Children start their school life in the term in which they are five years old, when they join our Reception Year. Children from Mcmillan Nursery due to start school are invited to come to several play sessions. Other parents and children are welcome to come when convenient for them or by appointment.
There are 21 classes in the school, 3 in foundation stage, 6 in Key Stage 1 and 12 in Key Stage 2. All Key Stage 1 classes have a maximum of 30 pupils and Key Stage 2 has an average class size of 28. There are no mixed age group classes. Children are placed in class in chronological order, however they are further set in mixed ability groups. The majority of our Year 6 pupils will transfer to Sir Henry Cooper School, although we do send children to other secondary schools.
There are 23 full time teachers and 4 part time teachers. They are well supported by child support assistants, clerical and administration staff, cleaning staff and lunchtime staff
At Fifth Avenue Primary School we enable and encourage each child to develop and reach their full potential by promoting:
- a high rate of sustained progress
- the ability to use number and language effectively
- an appreciation of the arts
- individual skills
- a healthy approach to life
- a sense of fairness, care and respect for themselves and others
- an understanding of right and wrong
- pride in their achievements
- respect for all living things and their environment.
Each child will be given a wide range of stimulating learning experiences based on their prior attainment and future needs. These will cover all the requirements of the National Curriculum delivered by high quality teaching. We will ensure good value for money.
The full National Curriculum is taught at the school. Great emphasis is given to the subjects of Maths, Science, English and ICT. We follow the Numeracy Strategy and the Literacy strategy.
In Key Stage 2, children are set for Mathematics and Literacy
Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art, P.E., and Personal, Social and Health Education are taught through a topic-based approach to ensure a broad and balanced education. R.E. is taught through a non-denominational approach supported by a broadly Christian based daily act of collective worship.
Children are assessed at the end of each school year and parents are informed of these results through the children's reports in July of that year.
A variety of clubs and activities are held before, during and after school. These include breakfast clubs, music, drama, football and rugby clubs.
School trips linked to the curriculum are undertaken throughout the school year, you will be informed of these and of their cost well in advance. Music exams are taken by some children during the school year and parents are asked to make a contribution towards this.
