1)    A message from Mr Andy Nicholls, Acting Headteacher



      Hello and welcome to Bentley West. I'd like to tell you a little bit about our school.

      We are part of the Central Bentley Federation. The federation includes Bentley
      West and King Charles Primary Schools and the Children‟s Centre. Our school
      offers two-form entry for children aged 5 to 11 and includes ten places for children
      who are profoundly deaf. We pride ourselves on our inclusive education and the
      positive attitudes towards inclusion that our pupils and parents have. We have high
      expectations of all our children and expect them to achieve as well as they can.

      We engage children‟s interest in their learning through an exciting curriculum. We
      make sure children are safe and well cared for during Breakfast and After-School
      Clubs, the school day, holiday playschemes, sports and after-school activities.

      At the Children‟s Centre the purpose built daycare nursery offers full or part time
      places for children aged 6 weeks to 3 years. Most children can then transfer to
      either school nursery until they enter reception class in the September of the
      school year they are five. Our school nursery consists of 78 part time places.

      Our school holds the following awards: Artsmark Gold, Activemark Gold, Healthy
      Schools, Investors in Pupils and Sing Up Gold.

      For further information and a „flavour‟ of our school please take the time to visit our
      website.

2)    Mission Statement

      It is the aim of all concerned with Bentley West to raise standards
                           in all areas of pupils’ learning.




Bentley West Primary School Prospectus 2010                          Page 4
3)    School Hours and Attendance
                Nursery                  8.45 – 11.45 or 12.30 – 3.30
                Foundation Stage         8.55 – 11.30 12.50 – 3.20
                Key Stage 1              8.55 – 12.00 1.00 – 3.20
                Key Stage 2              8.55 – 12.15 1.15 – 3.25

      Arriving on time

      School opens at 8.50am and all children should be in school by 8.55am. However,
      sometimes they may be a real problem with getting your child to school on time. If
      this happens please let us know. If your child is late please come to the office and
      explain so that the registers are correct.


      Absence

      We need to know why a child is absent as we have to publish this information, so
      please telephone or send a message or note as soon as possible. If the absence is
      likely to be lengthy, we can arrange for your child to have some schoolwork to do
      at home.


4)    School Organisation
      Our school is organised into 3 phases

           Foundation Stage -            ages 3 to 5
           Key Stage 1 -                 ages 5 to 7 (Years 1 and 2)
           Key Stage 2 -                 ages 7 to 11 (Years 3 to 6)




Bentley West Primary School Prospectus 2010                                          Page 5
5)    The Curriculum
      The National Curriculum is divided
      into stages and the first three
      (Foundation Stages for 3-5 year-
      olds, Key Stage 1 for 5-7 year-olds
      and Key Stage 2 for 7-11 year-
      olds) are applicable to Bentley
      West.

      Thematic Curriculum

      Research has shown that children
      learn faster and more effectively
      when skills and concepts are
      relevant to their lives and linked between subjects so we have recently re-
      structured our curriculum and adopted a cross-curricular, thematic approach to
      teaching and learning with an emphasis on equipping our pupils with the attitudes
      and skills which they will need for life in the 21st century.

      Bentley West‟s new, updated curriculum is managed by teams of teachers, and is
      delivered using an exciting thematic approach in which subjects such as science,
      history, geography, art, design and technology are linked together in order to
      provide our pupils with deeper learning experiences. The teams meet regularly to
      ensure that continuity and progression are smooth, pupils‟ progress is monitored
      and assessed and statutory requirements are met.

      Recent examples of highly successful cross-curricular topics have included:
      „Pirates‟, „Castles‟, „Australia‟ and „Chocolate‟.

      Our teaching methods range from whole class,‟ to individualised learning and are
      chosen to meet the task or skills being focussed upon.

      All classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards which, together with
      equipment such as digital cameras and voice recorders are used as valuable tools
      to support learning throughout the curriculum.




Bentley West Primary School Prospectus 2010                                         Page 6
      Inspire Days

      Each year group‟s thematic work is further
      enhanced by our regular „Inspire Days‟ during
      which families are invited to come into school
      to work alongside the children on projects as
      varied as creating Easter bonnets, designing
      and making ceramic tiles or building
      Anderson shelters. These prove very popular
      with children and adults alike and really serve
      to build teamwork and deepen
      understanding.

      English and Maths

      English and maths, as well as being integrated where appropriate into our thematic
      curriculum, are taught daily as stand-alone subjects based on the renewed Primary
      Strategy Literacy and Numeracy Strategies with work, tasks and support tailored to
      match all abilities.

      Through our teaching of English we aim for our children to:
         speak clearly and confidently;
         listen attentively and respond appropriately;
         read fluently for both pleasure and information;
         write clearly in any given genre;
         use spelling and grammar rules accurately;

      In maths pupils:
          explore number operations and relationships;
          explore shape and space;
          develop their measuring skills;
          work with data in tables, graphs and charts;
          learn to use mathematical vocabulary accurately;

      Religious Education

      Religious Education is an integral part of the revised primary curriculum. Our RE
      programme follows the Local Authority‟s agreed syllabus and we have a daily act
      of collective worship, either as a whole school, key stage or as a class.

      Music and PE

      Many of our classes also benefit from specialist teaching in music and PE. We love
      singing – we have recently been awarded the „gold‟ Sing Up award. Coaches from
      Walsall Football Club also come into school to teach our children.




Bentley West Primary School Prospectus 2010                                         Page 7
      French

      French is taught throughout the school – from Nursery, where children can be
      heard offering a cheery “Bonjour!” through to Year 6 where pupils can say, read
      and write sentences.

      Curriculum Enrichment activities

      During children‟s topic work, the school organises
      trips to places of interest which will make their
      learning easier and more meaningful, for example,
      when children study rivers, they take a trip to
      Carding Mill valley in Shropshire to look at a river
      valley. This kind of educational visit takes place for
      each year group.

      Sometimes special visitors are invited into school,
      for example „Time-zone‟ a historical drama group.
                                             Our children
                                             love these
                                             visits and
                                             learn a lot from them. In Year 6, children are
                                             given the opportunity to spend a week, or
                                             part of a week (depending on numbers) on a
                                             residential trip Here they abseil, canoe,
                                             climb rock walls and take part in many other
                                             adventure activities, all under close,
                                             qualified, adult supervision.

                                               These activities incur a cost to the school.
      Parents and carers are asked to make a contribution towards these costs as
      otherwise these events could not take place. Class teachers inform all parents of
      future trips, well in advance, so that payments can be made in stages.

      These are some of the visits and visitors that take place in each year group:
         Year 1: Avoncroft Museum, Tamworth Castle
         Year 2: Black Country Museum.
         Year 3: Timezone: Vikings and Romans Day
         Year 4: Bridgnorth, Cardingmill Valey, Valley Heritage.
         Year 5: TimezoneTudor Day, Tudor house building.
         Year 6: Residential

      Extra Curricular Activities

      Throughout the year we run a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities
      such as: a variety of sports, film club and cookery club. Details and dates of these
      clubs are issued regularly throughout the year.




Bentley West Primary School Prospectus 2010                                             Page 8
6)    Homework
      We believe that homework is an essential part of genuine pupil progress. All
      pupils, from Reception onwards, are given homework by their class teacher.
      Homework mainly supports Literacy and Numeracy but may also include extension
      work in other subjects.

      It is important that parents support their children because pupils do well when
      home and school work closely together and become partners in their children‟s
      education.




Bentley West Primary School Prospectus 2010                                         Page 9
7)    Special Educational Needs ( Inclusion)
      Our commitment to including all children in what the school has to offer is
      uncompromising. All our children are special and they are all different. They all
      have their own individual needs. We value their differences and provide them with
      equal access to all learning experiences.

      Every child, regardless of physical, emotional, social, ethnic or educational needs
      is welcomed and supported at Bentley West School. We believe that education is a
      three way partnership between children, parents and school.

      We follow the National Special Needs Code of Practice and strictly adhere to the
      criteria identified in the Disability Discrimination Act. This means that all children
      identified with any special needs are carefully monitored and, if appropriate, will
      progress through the stages of the Code.

      We have strong links with a number of outside agencies to ensure that our children
      are supported appropriately.

      Three Stages of the Code of Practice

      1.        School Action
      2.        School Action Plus
      3.        Statement

      School Action. This allows teachers to monitor specific, individual targets, beyond
      those identified in planning. Parents are encouraged to attend parent consultation
      evenings to discuss progress and review targets with their child‟s class teacher.
      Children who progress well can then be removed from the register.

      School Action Plus - For those children for whom School Action does not fully
      meet their needs a request can be made by the class teacher for the Special
      Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) to observe the child and recommend further
      support, if necessary. This may require participation in one of our many „catch up
      programmes‟ or a move to School Action Plus. Reviews at parents‟ evenings will
      continue to take place, but the SENCO will chair an additional review, once a year,
      to oversee progression. The SENCO may also feel it is necessary to involve
      appropriate outside agencies e.g. speech therapy, Educational Psychology or
      Learning Support.

      Statement of Educational Need - The final stage of the Code of Practice is for
      the school to make a request for : -

      Statutory Assessment -
      This involves an assessment of all areas of a child‟s development and is designed
      for those for whom catch-up programmes and intervention has failed to promote
      progress.

      The SENCO is happy to discuss any concerns parents may have at any time.


Bentley West Primary School Prospectus 2010                                             Page 10
      Reporting and liaising with parents of pupils who have special needs and/or
      disabilities - Parents are encouraged to take an active role in the education of
      their child. Teachers review the progress of Individual targets during parent
      consultation evenings and future targets are identified for the child.
      Parents are encouraged to come in and discuss any concerns they may have at
      any time.

      Checking the progress our deaf pupils and the pupils with special needs
      and/or disabilities make - Monitoring of planning and delivery of individual
      support is also undertaken regularly by the SENCO.

      We firmly believe that any special need should not stop a child from reaching their
      full potential and promoting strong partnerships with parents is key to achieving
      this aim.

      Deaf Pupils




          Communicate                         With me

      The school is specially resourced to promote the education of children who have
      severe or profound deafness. These pupils are taught alongside the other children
      and access the same curriculum and provision, but have their own specialist
      teachers and teaching assistants who work with them.

      We use British Sign Language and English communication with our deaf pupils.
      Our hearing pupils are encouraged to learn some sign language too, so that they
      can communicate with each other.

      All pupils within our resource base must have a Statement of Educational Need in
      order to access the enhanced provision. An Individual Education plan setting out
      targets to achieve drawn up termly for the child concerned, by a Teacher of the
      Deaf, the class teacher and the parents or careers. This is reviewed at the next
      termly meeting and amended. Children also have home-school books to aid
      communication between the school and the family.

      Child Protection

      We have a Child Protection Policy in place which is reviewed annually. Parents
      should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the
      safety of our pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a
      child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse at home, staff
      have no alternative but to follow Walsall‟s Child Protection Procedures and inform
      Social Services of their concern.

8)    National Curriculum Test Results
      Each year the school is required to publish the National Curriculum test results for
      pupils in Years 2 and 6. They are compared to schools nationally and to schools
      with a similar percentage of pupils entitled to free school meals.

      KEY STAGE 1 - 2010

9)    Parents
      You are your child’s first teacher.

      By the time your child comes to school, they have already taken major steps
      towards being independent, and have developed a wide range of abilities. Many
      children have an impressive range of physical and social skills and an ever-
      increasing understanding of the world in which they live. Most children talk well
      and each has their own particular interests and talent. Some have special needs to
      which we must respond.

      Whatever your child‟s needs, WE welcome YOUR involvement in meeting them
      together. When your child starts in the Foundation Stage, they will be part of a
      small teaching group. From your child‟s first day, you are welcome to be a member
      of this group and may choose to stay and support your child for as long as you
      think necessary. Sometimes this takes only a few days – sometimes parents like to
      be involved for much longer. The important thing is, that the choice is yours.


      Keeping in Touch with Each Other

      Each term you will be given an outline of the curriculum being studied for your
      child. This will tell you what your child will be doing in all aspects of the curriculum
      for the term.

      Each term you will have the opportunity to make an appointment with your child‟s
      teacher to discuss your child‟s progress. In July you will also receive a written
      report.

      If you have a message or quick question to ask, please pop in either before or
      immediately after school. If you would like a longer time to talk with either the class
      teacher or the headteacher, a time can easily be arranged. Staff are very willing to
      talk with parents at any time.


      Parents and friends of the school can also contribute to school life by:

           Talking to children about specific interests;
           Demonstrating particular talents;
           Sharing skills and experiences;
           Talking to children about their jobs. E.g. cook, driver, postmen, police etc.
           Using cameras and tape recorders to recall the children‟s experiences and
            abilities.

      All this helps us to make things more interesting and stimulating for the children.

10) Parents’ Teachers’ Association
      We have a very active PTA. Recent events that have been organised include a
      Big Day Out to Barmouth, Easter egg hunt, Summer Fayre, Book Fayre and the
      annual leavers Prom. The PTA present school leavers with a dictionary each
      year as well as annual sports awards.

11) School Rules
      We strive to create and maintain a happy and caring atmosphere in which all our
      children feel safe and secure.

      We have developed a Code of Conduct. This Code specifies a few simple rules
      that cover the general behaviour we expect from our pupils. Children who follow
      the rules will receive positive rewards whereas those children who choose to break
      the rules will receive sanctions.

      I WILL DO MY BEST TO:

           Value myself and others
           Act with kindness and Courtesy
           Behave in a responsible way in all things

      I DO MY BEST BY:

           Listening carefully
           trying to understand the other person’s point of view
           thinking of others when I am working and when I am moving around
            school
           taking responsibility for my own actions
           taking responsibility for my own belongings

      Children who choose to obey these rules will be rewarded from time to time with
