Welcome from the headteacher 

 I hope that you find the information available via this website appropriate and useful. We are a large three

form entry Junior school within the community of Lee-on-the-Solent.

 

Our children are fortunate to live in such a beautiful area of Hampshire and as a school we aim to make best

use of our local environment, including our school grounds, the local beach and country parks as well as

places further afield such as Liddington Multi-Activity Centre near Swindon.

 

We aim to involve parents and carers as much as possible in their children's education and have worked

hard to improve home school communication. We are a ClassDojo school and teachers aim to provide

regular updates about children's learning via the ClassDojo app. We also encourage parents to contact

school if they would like to discuss any concerns that they may have. Equally we like to hear from people

when they would like to provide positive feedback!

 

Sport and exercise play an important part in life at our school. We offer a variety of after school clubs and

enter teams for local and County competitions. We want all children to understand the importance of

physical exercise not only to help their physical health but also because of the positive impact it has on

general well being.

 

Music and the arts also feature prominently at our school. We have a school choir and offer a range of

music lessons run by teachers from Hampshire music service. We regularly provide opportunities for

children to perform to a wider audience and value the contribution that the arts make to the rounded

development of all children. We want children to appreciate the sense of well being that can be gained

from participating in an aspect of the performing arts and to encourage them to become lifelong

participants and performers.

 

In an ever changing world we believe that it is important for children to be able to analyse information in a

way that enables them to  make well informed decisions about actions being taken and how they will

impact on their own lives. We encourage children to solve problems in a constructive manner and to

support each other in doing so. We use a restorative justice approach to enable children to resolve misunderstandings and conflict in a mutually acceptable manner. We aim for children to be able to learn

from their actions and to use this to improve future interactions with members of our school and wider

community.

 

Finally, we have a supportive, friendly and very hard working group of staff who are highly committed to

ensuring that all children achieve well throughout their time at our school. We aim to provide an education

that secures high level of academic achievement alongside providing opportunities and experiences that

lead to them becoming well rounded individuals who are confident and have good learning habits to make

them lifelong learners.

 

Visits to the school are very welcome and can be arranged through the school office
