Victoria Road Primary School is a community primary school designed for children aged 411 years, and is maintained by Plymouth L.A. Our 4 Children Children's Centre provides facilities from birth to age 4 years. The school was opened in 1904 and we have 10 class bases in the main building. The school has a library, learning support room and a comprehensive ICT suite. The school hall incorporates a stage music system, dining area and new kitchen where food is cooked fresh on site. This is also used for P.E., assemblies and drama productions. We have a tyre park and outside play equipment, plus a developing outdoor education area including a pond and fire pit. We have developed an induction programme for foundation children to help make the transition from home to school as easy as possible. In the term prior to a child starting school, there is a meeting for new parents. Children are then invited into school for two afternoons to enable them to meet other children who are due to start school at the same time. There will also be a 1 -1 meeting arranged for you and your child with the class teacher. 4

THE ROLE OF GOVERNORS The Governors of a school are like a Board of Directors. They meet regularly and make decisions about how the school is run. They are appointed to help: • • • • Monitor what is taught Set standards of behaviour Interview and appoint staff Decide and monitor how the school budget is spent School governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities which they carry out together. They cannot act individually. The governors are: • • • • Parents Staff at the school Local authority representatives Community representatives, business men and women This booklet should answer any of your questions but please ask if there is anything else which is not clear or has been left out. They act as a critical friend and are responsible for the strategic overview. Further information is also available on the web site under the Governors’ section. HEAD TEACHER K.Duggan 5

Foundation Stage Key Stage 1 Key Stage 2 4–5 5-7 7 – 11 ADMISSION When children start school they will be in the foundation stage of their education. During the early meetings, if there are things we need to know about you as parents or your child for us to help you, please tell us. Our communication with you helps us understand you, especially through moderate or specific difficulties. We are always keen to assist and help anyone with learning difficulties in a compassionate, caring and confidential way. TRANSFER TO SECONDARY EDUCATION Pupils transfer to secondary education in the September following their eleventh birthday. Many of our children transfer to Marine Academy where good liaison has already been established. Children also have the opportunity to transfer to other secondary schools within Plymouth and Saltash, including Saint Boniface’s College and Notre Dame. In addition, Plymouth offers the choice of three grammar schools, if children wish to enter the selection procedure. 9

Pupils are assessed in Reception using the EYFS Curriculum. This is not a formal test and is very user friendly, with children being continually assessed throughout the year. Children in Years 1, 3,4 and 5 undertake optional SATs tests during the summer term. Pupils are assessed by class teachers throughout the year (Teacher Assessment or TA). These assessments are collated twice a term and analysed by the school's Leadership Team. The school uses an online tracking system – SPTO - and three times a year parents are able to log on and access their child’s data, reviewing the progress that they are making. During the Summer Term pupils in Year 2 and Year 6 are tested in English and Mathematics. These national tests are called SATs and the results are reported to you. Children in Year 1 have a national Phonics assessment, which is again reported to parents. 13
