The School Statement

Ambergate is a small village school where a genuine interest and concern for the individual exist.  The school aims to offer a high standard of primary education and a wide range of learning opportunities.  Learning to work and play together, sharing and caring for others are important factors in the life of our school.  We consider that it is important to build links with the wider community and value the support and involvement of parents in school.

Our aim is to provide every child with full access to a broad and balanced curriculum so that each individual can achieve their potential in an atmosphere of collaboration and mutual support and respect.

This means helping children to:

  • develop a positive attitude to school and learning in general
  • experience encouragement and success to enhance self respect
  • develop confidence, interest, initiative and responsibility
  • learn to work together with adults and peers to gain the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed in a rapidly changing world
  • communicate effectively in a variety of forms
  • participate in a wide range of physical, sporting and creative activities which enrich their appreciation of life
  • develop tolerance, respect for the views of others and raise awareness of religious and moral values
  • acquire an environmental awareness, fostering a caring attitude to the world around us

We aim to provide a high quality environment in which:

  • there is a high regard for children's safety
  • children have a clear understanding of what is expected of them in terms of work and behaviour
  • they are treated as individuals with unique learning needs whose ideas, opinions and work are valued
  • the achievement of children's highest possible standards is recognised and celebrated and is reflected in the quality of displays around school
  • there is an atmosphere of mutual co-operation, involvement and understanding between the school, parents and the community and everyone's contribution is valued
  • a belief in equal opportunity underpins all our work

The Curriculum

Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for the children using relevant and, wherever possible, real experiences to assist the learning process. For all children there is a planned progression of work.

As the primary curriculum becomes increasingly diverse and complex, presenting this succinctly, is more difficult. For the purpose of the school brochure we have produced an outline of the curriculum areas which your child will study. If you require further information, School Policy Documents and National Curriculum Programmes of Study are available in school.

Core Subjects

  • English

We have an excellent track record for teaching children to read. The whole basis of School Policy is to promote a love of books and to work in partnership with parents. From their first week in school your child will bring a reading book home on a regular basis. Please talk with your child's class teacher about how you can support the work that is being done in school. Children read a mixture of real books and reading scheme books that provide core structure when needed.

  • Mathematics

observations, explorations, experiments, living things, plants, animals, space, elements, weather, light, colour, sound, forces, power, electricity

  • ICT

We have a range of computer hardware in school; 7 PCs, all with Internet access and an interactive whiteboard as well as 2 Acorn computers, most with printers. In addition, we have a whole library of software to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum. Children are encouraged to use these resources across the curriculum. Activities include:

  • Religious Education

Caring for others, living in communities, famous people who have helped others, conservation and caring for the planet, feeding the world, developing a responsible attitude, caring for pets and animals.

At Ambergate School we provide information and opportunity for discussion on the Christian and other religious faiths. We seek to promote empathy, respect and tolerance towards other people. The children will be told Bible stories, they will also be told stories from other religions. We do recognise and celebrate the main Christian festivals in school, however, we also try to widen the children's knowledge of the festivals celebrated by other religions.

Parents do have the right to withdraw their child from religious education and collective worship.

Personal and Social Education

One of the great advantages of a small school such as ours is the development of a close knit family ethos in which all our children are helped to show consideration and respect for others. Ourselves, safety, relationships, working together and caring for others, sharing looking after our bodies, dental hygiene, physical fitness.
