We aim to develop the whole child having concern for their social and emotional development as well as their academic achievement.

We aim to help our children to become independent learners who are also able to support others and work co-operatively as members of a team.

We aim to provide an environment in which talents can be developed and difficulties can be supported and successes celebrated.

We aim to create an ethos where learning is seen as life long and both children and adults learn at school.

We aim to develop positive attitudes where children care for others and can respect differences in abilities and interests and in race, culture and religion.

We aim to encourage our children to care for the man-made and natural environment and see themselves as guardians of the world which we all share.

We aim for our children to understand how their bodies work and appreciate the need to take care of themselves to stay fit and healthy.

We seek to work with the community for the benefit of those living in Old Goole.


In the Foundation Stage, the children work on early learning goals in six areas of learning. These are:
 Personal, social and emotional development
 Communication, language and literacy
 Mathematical development
 Knowledge and understanding of the world
 Physical development
 Creative development
Teachers will inform you of the progress which your child makes in working towards these goals. An on-going profile of your child?s progress will be recorded and this will be shared with you at the end of the foundation stage.

In Key Stages 1 and 2, the children work on the National Curriculum subjects.
The ten National Curriculum subjects are:
English, Mathematics, Science, Design Technology, Geography, History, Music, Art, Information and Communication Technology, and Physical Education.

Each of these subjects has Schemes of work and Level Descriptors that set out what the child should know at each stage in their education. For each subject there is a Programme of Study which describes what children should be taught to achieve each level.

Work in English and Mathematics incorporates the National Literacy and Numeracy Strategies.

The school follows the programme for Religious Education, outlined by the East Yorkshire Education authority. Daily assemblies are non-denominational. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from assemblies and religious education lessons if they wish and make alternative arrangements for their children.

We seek to give the children a broad and balanced curriculum and to make the learning process stimulating and enjoyable. Continuous assessment ensures that work is matched to children?s needs.

Teachers will inform you of your child?s progress at two parent?s evenings during the year and you will also receive a written report at the end of each academic year. Formal assessment in statutory tests takes place at the end of each Key Stage.

Enriching the curriculum

Personal, Social and Health Education is also an important part of our curriculum and we are incorporating citizenship from September. We have recently joined the Healthy Schools scheme. Sex education is currently taught in line with the Governor?s policy, to children in Y6 as part of the school?s Health Education Programme. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from specific Sex Education lessons if they wish to do so.
In Year 6 pupils have the opportunity to take part in a course of first aid training during the Summer term, run by Mrs Whiteley, our trained first aid person.

Sporting activities are arranged both in school and after school. All classes have two P.E. lessons each week. The school has a hall, a large field, two large playgrounds and a smaller one. In Year 5 children have the opportunity to swim at Goole Leisure Centre.

Music lessons can be taken in school.
Currently violin and brass instrument
lessons are available.

Golden time is a special hour on Friday afternoon when children are rewarded for good behaviour during the week. In Key Stage 1, the children can choose from a range of learning through play activities. In Key Stage 2, the children can choose to join groups offering activities such as baking, dance, singing, painting, sewing, knitting, computer, model making etc. Key Stage 2 children are able to suggest activities for Golden time, through School Council.


We would like to invite you to Key Stage 1.
