ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY
Newbold School is committed to supporting the children to achieve the best possible attendance, to enable every child to reach their full potential. There is a strong link between good school attendance and achieving a good education. Children who frequently miss school may fall behind in their learning and development‚ so we work closely with families to avoid this situation. We are proud of our children's good attendance but also remain determined to improve this further with your support.
In keeping with goverment guidance and the Local Authority advice, family holidays will not be authorised by Newbold School during term time. Children should be in school during term time. It is not in their interest to take extended holiday when they will miss vital instruction and activities related to their programme. Further it is not reasonable to expect the class teacher to prepare extra work for the child to take with them whilst holidaying, with the resulting marking, or to personally coach that child on return so that they can catch up with their peers.
Please find the full Attendance Policy as well as the Arrival and Departure of Children Policy below‚ and do not hesitate to contact the school office should you have any doubts or questions.
We provide a learning environment that engages, challenges and supports our pupils with the aim of developing successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
The Newbold curriculum is designed to provide the education that we believe is right for the pupils in our school and that will equip them to become successful life-long learners. Based on the National
Curriculum, it has been customised to reflect the interests and backgrounds of our pupils, to provide a diverse range of exciting experiences and to support the aims and values of the school.
The curriculum is balanced between core subjects and the wider curriculum and has the dual aims of promoting academic achievement and personal development. It promotes British Values and the
Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development of our pupils. It is organised to support pupils’ growing depth of understanding.
Teachers plan a variety of topics to engage and inspire the children and to ensure the learning is meaningful and has a purpose. Subject teaching is organised to support pupils’ growing depth of understanding and, where appropriate, to create links between different areas of learning. Enquiry-based activities and opportunities for developing reasoning skills are planned into all areas of learning.
Curriculum Drivers help to shape the content and delivery of the curriculum:
• Local and Global citizens
• Developing Learning Behaviours
We use Growth Mindset theory and practice to support the development of The Newbold Learner, who:
- Has an enquiring mind and uses reasoning skills effectively;
- Is motivated to learn and seeks challenges;
- Is resilient when things get difficult and learns from mistakes;
- Works independently or collaboratively as appropriate;
- Reflects on learning and identifies next steps in their learning journeys.
