Self Evaluation Summary

Self Evaluation Summary

This is the introduction to the school’s current Self-Evaluation Summary for Curbar Primary School (November 2015).

 

The context and characteristics of the school

  • Curbar Primary School is a local authority maintained village school with 76 children currently on role from 4 – 11 years old.  The number of children on role has fluctuated in recent years from a low of 48 to the current situation.  This is partly due to demography but there has also been an increase in pupil numbers due to the good reputation of the school.

 

  • Our catchment covers the three villages of Curbar, Calver and Froggatt. The population of the catchment is approximately 2000. Several children travel to school from neighbouring towns and villages.  It is not a typical rural area, displaying some social deprivation alongside considerable affluence.

 

  • The school works closely alongside and within the community.  The National Park controls new development very closely and therefore local housing is expensive.  There is one playgroup that operates within our catchment and an out-of-school club which is run on the school site (The 623 club). The vast majority of children move to Lady Manners School in Bakewell for their secondary education.

 

  • The children are organised into three mixed-age classes: EYFS and KS1; Years 3 and 4; Years 5 and 6.

 

  • 7.9% of the current pupils (6 children) are classed as ‘disadvantaged children and learners’ and receive the Pupil Premium entitlement. This is lower than national average.  One of these children is adopted from care and receives additional pupil premium funding.

 

  • 11.8% of current pupils (9 children) are from minority ethnic groups.  This is lower than national average.

 

  • 5.2% of current pupils (4 children) have English as an additional language.  This is lower than national average.

 

  • 6.6% of current pupils (5 children) have SEN support.  There are no pupils with an EHP.  This is lower than national average.

 

  • Pupil stability is broadly in line with national averages.  However, there were 6 new admissions to the school for September 2015 (not including Reception) and 2 in year admissions.

 

  • There has been significant recent investment in a modular classroom which houses the EYFS/KS1 class (2012) and a new sports facility (MUGA) has recently been completed.

 

  • Attainment on entry is broadly in line with national averages for 70% of the children (7 pupils).  30% of the children are below average and have specific learning difficulties around the three prime areas of communication and language, personal, social and emotional development and physical development and in specific areas of maths and literacy.

 

  • The headteacher has been in post since September 2015 and has a 0.3 teaching commitment.  The previous Headteacher spent three years in the school.

 

  • The school has the STOP (anti-bullying), ActivMark, Let’s get Cooking, ECO schools and Healthy Schools status.

 

The last Ofsted inspection was in 2008, when the school was judged to be Outstanding.
