Welcome to our website, we hope you enjoy it and are able to gain a picture of what we do at St Clements.
St Clements is a good school and we are continuing to work very hard since our last Ofsted in June 2014 to raise the standard of teaching to outstanding, raise achievement and to develop leadership and management at all levels in school.
I know that I speak for the Governors, staff and pupils when I say that we are proud of the achievements of our school.
*At the end of 2015-16, the progress that our Year 6 pupils made, compared to pupils at similar schools nationally, was above the floor standard in reading, writing & maths.
Our Year 6 pupils also attained higher than other pupils nationally in reading (69%) and their attainment in maths, writing and grammar, punctuation and spelling was in line with attainment nationally too.
*We also achieved in line with the national average passing the phonics screening check in Year 1 (82%) and we achieved in line with the local average in the Good Level of Development at the end of Reception (63%).
We place a very high importance on pupils feeling happy and all of us showing respect towards one another.
We also pride ourselves on knowing each child as an individual due to our nurturing and caring environment which is underpinned by our Christian values. We are proud to have strong links with our church which we visit at least every half term and enjoy weekly worship in school led by Reverend Paul.
In our pupil survey (June 2016) we found out:
*98% enjoyed being at school.
*98% of pupils agreed that this is a good school.
*98% of pupils agreed there were lots of lunchtime and afterschool activities
*They also told us that they feel safe in lessons (97%) and at playtime (94%). This has improved since the previous year due to the improvements we have made to our playground facilities.
*Pupils realise that they can always talk to an adult and recognise our school cares about them. (92%)
*We have an involved governing body that knows our school well and challenges us to do even better by working with us on monitoring standards of teaching, pupil’s work and speaking to pupils about what is going well and what we can do even better.
*Our staff have a wealth of experience and are a committed, hardworking staff team.
*We have an exciting, creative curriculum that our parent/carers think is great due to how the trips and visitors into school bring learning to life. They also appreciate the clear and up to date information they receive about what their child is learning and how they can support their child at home. We have taken on board feedback from our parent/carers about how we can improve communication with them by starting to e-mail the weekly newsletter out to them and keeping them in touch with what their child has achieved and what they are learning through the class dojo system.
We recognise the importance of working with the whole family and as a result, parent/carers are welcome to come into school to participate in learning and social activities or receive support from our Family Support team on a range of issues.
Nothing but the best is good enough for our pupils and families and we look forward to continuing to work in partnership with all stakeholders to achieve our goal of becoming a truly outstanding school.
