A to Z
The school adheres to the admissions policy of the Education Department of the Northamptonshire County Council. If a parent/carer wishes their child to attend Spratton CE Primary School, they must contact Northamptonshire County Council Admissions team who advise on available places and allocate spaces. Details can be found in the County Council’s booklet ‘Applying for a Primary School Place in Northamptonshire’ which can be viewed on the County Council Website: www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/admissions or they can be contacted on 0300 126 1000.
The school has a policy on positive behaviour management focused on RESPECT. We want children at our school to be well behaved, self-disciplined and confident. We expect parents to work with the school in partnership to support its aims. When your child starts at our school you will be asked to sign a contract, a home-school agreement. It is our aim to build upon the discipline already established at home and we enter into this contract with you as part of our belief in partnership between home and school.
We have a system of rewards and consequences to recognise good behaviour and prevent unacceptable behaviour. Staff are positive role models and set an excellent example to the children in the way we behave with them and you. Care, courtesy and consideration are key words in our code of behaviour. Every child has a right to feel safe, the right to respect and the right to learn. All members of our school community have the responsibility to ensure that this happens.
Staff use positive behaviour management strategies. They use meaningful verbal praise, sharing successes in celebration worship, stickers, letters home, certificates and house points at various times during the school year. Records are kept of challenging behaviour and parents are informed and involved at an early stage if we have to use the consequences system.
Any incidents of racial harassment or bullying are recorded and reported as per the Northamptonshire Policy. These incidents are taken very seriously and are dealt with quickly. Parents are involved in discussions about strategies and solutions. Exclusion is very rarely necessary and only occurs if the school’s programme of positive behaviour management does not succeed and the school does not have the resources to meet the child’s need. We adhere to the Northamptonshire policy on exclusion.

Our curriculum fully reflects the requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum and PDET Policy. We believe that all children are entitled to teaching and learning opportunities which enable them to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to facilitate enthusiastic learning and help them to progress. Positive attitudes to work are established early. Our aim is that the children will become independent, curious, questioning and adaptable, and that this will be accomplished in an atmosphere of happiness, security and calm. Our expectations are high and we encourage each child to reach their full potential. Great care is taken in planning. Teaching methods vary according to the type of activity or the aims of a particular session. We recognise that children have different learning needs and preferences and provide a variety of activities in order to ensure equal access.
