on about South Baddesley CE Primary School South Baddesley CE Primary School is a small, Church school catering for pupils between the ages of 4-11 years of age. We have approximately 146 pupils on roll, who are currently organised into 6 classes, but provide a significant amount of learning in smaller learning groups, known as ‘learning pods.’ In January 2019, we received a ‘good’ Ofsted judgement. The provision for pupil’s welfare and behaviour was judged to be outstanding. Our vision is to ‘strive and believe to shine’ for all individuals at our school. Our school is about a mile outside of the thriving town of Lymington and on the edge of the New Forest. We are fortunate to have a large, well developed outdoor space. This includes a specific Woodland School area, a pond, a school garden and a meadow. We use our outdoor space continuously to enhance the learning of the pupils. A number of children travel in from the New Forest each day by mini-bus. We are responsible for our own mini bus contract and this gives us access to two new mini buses everyday. Our school vision and curriculum is firmly rooted in our Christian Values of: Kindness. We consider ‘kindness’ to have three aspects: Kindness to ourselves. Kindness to others. Kindness to the world. We look for opportunities to teach and explore these values through both our spiritual and moral guidance. Our curriculum aims to ‘explore life in all its fullness’ and so there are a number of opportunities to learn beyond the classroom, often through TEAM events. These opportunities include: swimming, SBS Marathon, sailing, kayaking, rafting and camping. As well as a broad range of additional opportunities to learn skills such as becoming a Young First Aider, leading a sport, public speaking in Community Worship or working alongside patients at our local Hospice. Our children learn to grow resilience and independence through these opportunities. Our curriculum based on the National Curriculum weaves together the challenging content and broad aims set out in it. Our curriculum values ‘people’ first and this is our guiding principle or ‘north star’ Through our curriculum we aim to develop: Wisdom Curiosity Innovation and Excellence for all our children, regardless of starting points. We use the core curriculum drivers of literature, people and the world to shape all of our learning experiences so that children engage in deep and challenging learning experiences. Our school is spread across three buildings; these vary from an old Victorian building to a much newer eco-build. We are fortunate to have well designed spaces to teach and learn in. Each classroom has a growing library space, with children regularly dropping in to read. We use high-quality literature to inspire children through the English curriculum. This means that children develop both their reading skills and deeper understanding of concepts and issues beyond their immediate experience. The SBS Team is supportive and strong. Professional dialogue is a strength and we have a number of systems in place to support the development of each other. We are part of the Halterworth Teaching Alliance, meaning we regularly have student teachers as part of our team. We have also developed strong links with Winchester University and have been recognised for our reflective, research-led practice. We currently have the equivalent of 6 FTE teachers plus the Headteacher. This includes a Deputy Head. In addition to teaching staff, we currently have a number of teaching assistants providing class, small group and 1:1 support. We also have an Inclusions Team providing SEND and vulnerable pupil support across the school. This team is led by our SENCo and Inclusion Leader. In our admin team we have a Finance Officer and two admin assistants, and a health and safety lead. We have three qualified Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs). The school has a very supportive and involved team of governors. The Governors take an active role in school life both supporting and challenging the strategic direction of the school. Governors have subject specialist links with teachers across the school. The school is also supported by a very active ‘parent- friends association,’ called the Friends of SBS. This is led by a group of parents who fundraise tirelessly for the school. Over the last few years they have funded, 32 new chrome books, a log cabin for music lesson, new play equipment for the grounds, as well as many, many smaller items such as books and historical artefacts.
