White Notley C of E Primary School

Sunday afternoon, March 12th was a big day in the school’s history.

Over 250 people attended the service of thanksgiving and blessing led by the Bishop of Colchester and Reverend John Hall at St Etheldreda’s Church. Then followed entertainment consisting of singing and instrumental pieces from the pupils in the new school hall,

‘Phillers’ provided the refreshments and the home made cakes were very popular.

Jane of ‘Passion Flowers’ had made the floral arrangements in the school colours, for the church and the entrance hall at school.

All the school’s staff had worked hard to make sure the school looked its absolute best for the day.

It was an extremely happy occasion and the whole school, including the new classrooms, was open for viewing.

Guests included Brooks Newmark, MP, Alan Hurst, the MP who originally helped the campaign for a new hall, Canon Peter Hartley from the Diocese, building contractors and the architect, Governors past and present, Mrs Sue Bennett, the previous headmistress, many parents and pupils, past and present, and many people from the village.

The guests of honour were last year’s year 6 who cut the ribbon (held by the MPs) to mark the official opening.

The new buildings have made such a difference to the pupils and staff at the school, who are enjoying the space and the facilities enormously.

· We aim to nurture particular gifts and talents through excellent teaching of pupils and continuing professional development of adults.


Children are arranged through the school in accordance with their age. However, as the age range spans seven years and there are only four teachers the organisation of classes may vary from time to time. The teacher for each class is responsible for planning the children’s work within the school`s curriculum policies.

The National Curriculum at primary level consists of twelve subjects - the first three, English, Maths, Science, are known as the "Core Subjects" I.C.T. plays a large part in enhancing other subjects and in addition, I.C.T. skills are taught. Design and Technology, History, Geography, Art, Music, P.E., P.S.H.E. (Personal, Social and Health Education) and Religous Education are the "Foundation Subjects." French is taught to all pupils from year 1 upwards. Planning incorporates the progression of skills and targets for groups and individuals to attain. Children should know or be capable of demonstrating these targets at various stages of their educational development. Each subject also has a Programme of Study which describes the experiences through which the children may learn and practise the relevant skills and achieve the relevant targets.

Three key stages relate to the children in a Primary School:

Foundation Stage 3-5 years of age

Key Stage One 5-7 years of age

Years 1 and 2 Levels 1 - 3

Key Stage Two 7-11 years of age

Years 3 - 6 Levels 2 – 5

Each child will work at his/her particular ability level and progress through the National Curriculum Levels at his/her own rate. Parents receive written reports outlining their child`s progress and attitude towards learning and school life. National Curriculum Levels for the core subjects of English, Maths and Science are reported following assessment at age 7 and 11. All parents can look at the National Curriculum Documents and School Policy Documents and Schemes of Work which are kept in the school staffroom. The Headteacher is prepared to discuss these, by appointment. The curriculum we offer is broad and balanced and relevant to your child`s individual needs.


Such activities take place after school. A Sports Club for Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 is held each Tuesday from 3.15 to 4.00, offering a range of sports activities according to the season. A homework club operates on a weekly basis on Wednesdays from 3.15 to 4.00 for those children in KS2 who need help or simply need time set aside. An Art Club is also held on Wednesdays for upper key stage 2 pupils. A Band Club takes place on Thursdays from 3.15 to 4.00. This is intended for those children who are learning an instrument in or outside school. Occasionally this is replaced by a Drum Workshop offered to all KS2 children.

There are opportunities throughout the year for other extra-curricular activities together with pupils from local schools. Football and netball matches take place. Speed Stacks have been introduced too. This is a fast-moving activity requiring dexterity, coordination and cross-lateral use of the brain. We join with other schools to make music when possible.
