Map of Plumtree Plan of the School Our Mission This School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Ethos Roots and Wings (Plumtree School Motto) We aim to provide a challenging and supportive environment where every child is valued as an individual and can reach their full potential At Plumtree School we support and challenge children as they develop through the

following objectives:

To create for all children a secure and loving environment in which they learn.

• To recognise each child as an individual and identify their specific needs to give • them every opportunity to fulfil their potential.

To foster in all children social, moral and Christian values and to develop an • awareness and understanding of other faiths in our multicultural world.

To stimulate in all children an awareness and understanding of the world in • which we live.

To develop in all children effective reading, writing and communication skills.

• To develop in all children an ability to approach mathematical concepts with • confidence and understanding.

To provide all children with a range of ICT opportunities to develop their skills • within the curriculum.

To provide all children with a broad and stimulating curriculum relevant to the • world around them.


Expectations It is a primary aim at Plumtree School, that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. All members of the school work together in a supportive way to promote an environment where everyone feels happy, safe and secure.

We have a code of behaviour that all children follow and understand. This has been discussed and reviewed by the School Council.

Code of Behaviour

1. Treat other children, and adults, how you would like to be treated yourself.

2. Listen carefully to teachers and other children.

3. Always try to be honest. If you have done something wrong, own up and tell the truth.

4. Take care of other children and take them to an adult if they are upset or hurt.

5. If you have any worries do tell your teacher so that it can be sorted out.

6. Remember that when you are in school uniform you represent your school.

7. Take care of school equipment so that it can be enjoyed by everybody.

Early Years Foundation Stage Information

–  –  –

Drop off and Collection Routines in the Foundation Stage Children are supervised from 8.30 in the playground.

• Until they are settled, the children may be brought straight into the classroom.

• Parents are welcome in the Nursery at the beginning and the end of the day and are • encouraged to “make a quick exit” when registration begins.

Reception parents are asked to wait outside the Infant lobby to collect their children.

• The children are encouraged to greet the member of staff on gate duty.

• Small toys and books may be brought into school. They can act as useful talking points and can • be taken outside to be played with at lunchtime.

From the outset children are encouraged to be as independent as possible (e.g. hanging up • their coats, putting their lunch boxes and snacks away).

We will only release children into the care of individuals named by a parent. Please speak to • your class teacher, fill in the relevant form or telephone in advance to inform us of any changes to routine.

The Foundation Stage Daily Routine

–  –  –

Food and Drink in the Foundation Stage

• Children are required to bring a packed lunch to school if they are not having a Hot Meal; lunch boxes are stored in a cool, but not refrigerated area of school.

• Please do your best to provide a balanced school lunch. Crisps and snacks are fine but please do not include sweets.

• At lunchtime any leftovers are left in their lunchboxes in order for parents to monitor “likes and dislikes” and to indicate how much has been eaten.

• Staff on lunch duty will help children to open containers, but we ask that no cans or fizzy drinks are included.

• The children may have a healthy snack at morning break-time. (fruit, cereal bar, raw vegetables – no chocolate, biscuits or sweets).

• All children are provided with milk every morning, but may bring their own drink if this is preferred. Water is available at all times.

Toileting and Clothes in the Foundation Stage

• We expect children to use the toilet independently, but if parents have any concerns on this matter we will be happy to discuss these with you.

• Uniform requirements are listed in this handbook, but blazers are optional for nursery children.

• Cagoules are required all year round.

• Please name all items clearly.

• Please ensure your child has spare trousers/tights/socks/pants etc in their P.E bag, even if they do not usually have accidents (nursery especially).

• We usually have spare clothes to change children into if necessary, so please return any clothes you borrow from us.

Additional Information for the Foundation Stage

• All parents may have contact with our teaching staff daily, enabling any queries to be dealt with quickly.

Teaching staff monitor and assess children in order to record their progress on the Early Years • Profile and provide work that challenges children appropriately. We will happily share these written records with parents on request.

We will administer prescribed medicine to children. Parents are responsible for delivering their • child’s medicine personally to the class teacher each day and for asking to collect it from a member of staff at the end of each day.

If you require any further information please come and see us before or after school.

• Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) Foundation Stage Activities All children participate in a wide range of adult led and child initiated activities both indoors • and outdoors.

The activities provided for children are based around the (EYFS) 2014 Early Years • Foundation Stage Curriculum (see below).

All activities are carefully planned, enabling all children to enjoy and achieve and to be • challenged and channelled appropriately.

Foundation Stage children are fully integrated into the rest of the school through shared • assemblies, playtimes and school events.

Parents are informed of the topics to be covered in school on a termly basis through the • nursery class letter so that appropriate language and basic skills can be reinforced at home.

When your child is ready they will be given a reading folder and asked to complete a small • amount of homework each night. This will be discussed with you when necessary.

The handwriting taught in school is cursive in style; please refer to the sheet included in this • handbook and when possible model this letter formation at home.

The EYFS is made up if seven areas of learning and development. Together these provide a basic framework which we use to plan our daily, weekly and termly routines and events. Our small classes and excellent adult to child ratios allow us to explore these areas in depth, whilst also fully incorporating them into the wide range of activities we plan for.

• Communication and language development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.

• Physical development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.

• Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.

• Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

• Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

• Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

«Bob Dylan’s ‘Roll on John’ – lyric analysis. “Roll on John” is another masterpiece from the album ‘Tempest’ which I really love. The song has a melancholy melody, it chimes and despairs, the music lingers on as we are slowly drifting from scene to scene and Dylan’s voice is really heartfelt. When I heard the song for the first time, the lyrics somehow disappointed me. My first thought was that, no matter how great an artist John Lennon may have been and no matter how much I...»
