At Hunningley, we have a very clear vision of the journey we want our school to go on, and an action plan to go with it. Below are five areas of our school vision, and the steps we took in 2016-17 to develop them further:
Celebrate and share success
This year, children in the winning house team have been rewarded at the end of each term. In September the children will be put into new house teams and will earn individual points as well as house points. The children earning 150 points or more during the year will be rewarded in the Summer Term, in addition to the team reward.
Develop a nurturing culture and good standards of behaviour
The development of Circle Time and staff training around therapeutic approaches has further enhanced the children’s already good behaviour. The Hive will be moving as part of the building work, to a new larger space where the school kitchen is currently.
Foster positive relationships with parents and carers
This term KS1 held a very successful Fair Trade Café. Thank you to all the parents who supported this event. We are planning more opportunities like this next year. We are also planning Class Assemblies to share the children’s work with you.
Further enrich the curriculum through first-hand experiences and quality resources
The curriculum has continued to be enhanced by providing children with quality first-hand experiences such as the chicks hatching in KS1, and the UKS2 visit to look at coastal erosion. Tesco continue to support the school by providing sessions that enhance and enrich our curriculum. Children across school have accessed Woodland sessions which have been a huge success. This will continue next year.
Work collaboratively with cluster schools and local groups to build a better future for our community
Working together with local schools we have been able to plan a better transition to secondary schools for our Y6 children. Teachers work together across the schools to moderate their judgements around your children’s learning and progress. We will further develop these relationships next year with subject leaders working together to enhance the curriculum.
