TEACHING AND LEARNING
All teachers are positive and hardworking because they want their pupils to do well. They work together as a strong team�..As a result of good teaching, pupils learning skills are well developed. Teachers organise the right kind of work to help the pupils to learn effectively, and their introductions to lessons and their explanations are very brisk and clear�.. Teachers understand the importance of teaching basic skills thoroughly�.. The fact that teachers provide a lot of challenges in lessons keeps pupils motivated and working hard.�
The headteacher�s personal drive, enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to the school and to its pupils encourage everyone to work hard together as a team. The very good relationships between governors, teaching staff, support staff, parents and pupils are due to the way that she encourages and values contributions from everyone�.
The main thrust of these initiatives, however has been to lead improvements in the quality of pupils�education�..staff,governors and pupils have supported all these initiatives very well, and this explains why the school is so successful in gaining national awards�..
��the Senior Management team, who have a wide range of collective expertise and skills to offer..The school�s success with introducing Golden Time ( a time set aside for pupils, teachers, support staff and parents to take part in a variety of chosen activities together) is due to the enthusiasm and commitment of senior staff�.Subject co-ordinators take their responsibility very seriously�They are keen to use their expertise in ways that are helpful to other teachers�.Governors know what it means to be a �critical friend� and the headteacher actively encourages their close involvement in the school�s progress. Consequently, governors make sure that the school meets all legal requirements and that the values and ethos statement is seen in practice all the time.�
END OF QUOTES!
Our values and ethos statement is: �We aim to create and maintain a happy, caring, healthy and safe environment, which promotes and secures good teaching, effective learning, high standards of achievement and good behaviour. We aim to maximise the contribution of all children, staff, parents, governors and the community to ensure constructive working relationships.� Isn�t it a fantastic and rare compliment that this is seen in practice throughout school?
I would like to emphasise my deep and sincere gratitude to every single pupil, member of staff, governing body, parent and friend of Farsley Farfield Primary School. We could not have achieved so much without each other. Children are at the centre of all our united work, they are our precious product and together we are making a real difference for their future.
