We have a new school entrance and foyer.
There are lots of interesting things to see in our front entrance. We have a wonderful fish tank full of beautiful fish. Our secretary's office is just off the entrance hall.
This is our new entrance porch. Mrs. Manton will be here to deal with all visitors.
We are very proud of our school and have done our best to give an accurate account of what we have to offer to every child in this prospectus. With 64 children, all of our staff have a personal knowledge of every child and there is a real family atmosphere. We aim to provide the highest standard of education and offer a broad, challenging curriculum. We have experienced and dedicated staff who provide the highest standard of education and offer a challenging and balanced curriculm.
It is difficult to convey the atmosphere of our school in print, so to disover more, you might like to talk to parents and pupils, past and present. Many children attending our school come from families who have a long association with us, some as pupils themselves. We have also been very pleased to welcome new families who have recently moved into the area.
The school holds a cherished position in this close-knit community. Do visist us to discover for yourself our school in action. I can guarentee that you will recieve a very warm welcome.

Parents and children are encouraged to visit School well before the date of School admission. The LEA's standard 'PA1' form should then be completed and returned to us by 1st March before the child's entry to school. We send the form on to the Worcester Admissions Office. The LEA allows us to admit up to 10 children in each year.
The School's own confidential information form is completed and submitted by parents. The information is stored on the administrative computer and can be viewed by the parent concerned. This is very useful in case of illness or accident. Please ensure that the details are kept up to date, especially regarding the working committments of both parents.
Priority in the allocation of places is given to those pupils living in the School catchment area. If spare accomodation is available after local needs have been satified, requests from parents living outside the area will be considered.
In order to provide the best quality provision at Clifton-upon-Teme Primary School, and taking into consideration the needs of the community as a whole, our Admissions Policy from September 2001 is based on a 2-intake system.
Children who are born between 1st September and 29th February will be admitted full-time in September. Children born between 1st March and 31st August will be admitted full-time in January and part time in September.
For those younger 4 year olds the is an 'induction' period in the Autumn term. The children will be able to attend school each morning, stay to lunch, and then be collected at 1 o'clock. In special cases we can modify these arrangements subject to negotiation. For example, for a summer born child to attend school for a reduced number of sessions.
We believe children should:
* by being well behaved
* by respecting their views, co-operating, sharing listening and caring
* by being considerate, polite and tolerant
Be happy and friendly
Become adaptable, honest, independent, responsible, reliable, resourceful, organised and tidy
Enjoy learning in a pleasant environment
We aim to:
Ensure the safety and happiness of pupils
Ensure that educatioal achievement is not affected by bullying
Ensure that children consider others
Foster a sense of commitment towards and pride in the School
The library is full of great books to read. We have monitors in school to help us keep the library organised. Everyone in school can use the library. There are comfy cushions to sit on.
This is where the children hang up their coats and bags.It's always very neat and tidy !!
