COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE

We believe in working in partnership with our parents. as part of this process there will be occasions when you may need to come into school and inform us of a concern you may have. You are very welcome to come into school and make the teacher or office staff aware. There may be times when you require a longer more formal meeting. Our advice would be to make an appointment to see the class teacher, in the first instance.

In the vast majority of cases most issues are resolved by talking to the class teacher. If, following this meeting you do not believe your concern has been fully addressed, please make an appointment to see the Headteacher by telephoning the School Manager, Mrs Claire Baker, on 0114 2486211. During this meeting they can make you aware of the process you can adopt should you wish to take the matter further. 

Please see below links to documents -

We welcome any feedback at all times and would always encourage you to drop in and tell us how you think we are doing and suggest ways we can improve.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORT PREMIUM

The vision for the Primary Physical Education (PE) and Sport Premium is that ‘all pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.’

The funding that is allocated is in addition to the curriculum funding for PE and sport from the main school budget and aims to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of port in primary schools.

Schools are encouraged to use this funding in a multitude of ways

  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work alongside class teachers
  • Provide existing staff with teaching resources to assist them to teach PE and sport more effectively
  • Introduce new sports or activities
  • Support and involve the least active children through a range of activities
  • Run sports competitions and activities with other schools

At Mosborough Primary School, we have a PE Development Plan in order to continue to improve provision and to raise the achievement of all pupils in PE and Sport. Our key objectives are to:

  • Improve the quality and range of PE
  • Increase involvement and participation in local competitive tournaments and sports festivals and to evidence the impact these experiences have on pupils
  • Raise the profile of sport and encourage all children to participate
  • Continue to improve the quality of premises to ensure PE can be taught in a safe environment
  • Ensure that PE is adequately resourced

PE AND SPORT PREMIUM

In 2020-2021, school was allocated £19,494. Details of how the school allocated this funding and evidence of the impact throughout the year is set out in our PE and Sport Premium Grant Funding Report, which is available here

The school will soon confirm it's allocation for the academic year 2021/22. Details of how we allocated this funding and evidence of the impact it made will be published in our PE and Sport Premium Report in July 2022. 

Schools are expected to evaluate their use of the PE & Sport Premium against the following five key indicators:

  • Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and promoting healthy active lifestyles
  • Profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a vehicle for whole school improvement in regard to healthy living per se
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in the teaching of PE
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.

The impact of the PE and Sport Premium at Mosborough Primary School is cross referenced to these five key indicators.

PUPIL PREMIUM AND PUPIL OUTCOMES

Pupil Premium is a grant awarded to schools for each child who has an entitlement to free school meals (FSM) either currently (2021) or historically at some point during the past six years. The government has provided this grant so that schools can allocate additional support to address the underlying inequalities that can exist between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.

Strategy

Mosborough Primary School is committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve the highest academic standards and that any disadvantage is addressed as early, quickly and effectively as possible. The school has enjoyed huge success in this area and analysis of our attainment data shows there has been no correlation between the achievements of pupils per se and in particular pupils awarded Pupil Premium.

 

While we receive Pupil Premium funding in line with the financial year (April to April), we measure impact from September to September. Our Pupil Premium strategy is a three year plan which is reviewed annually, with the next review scheduled for the 2021 autumn term.

Our Pupil Premium lead is Miss Stephanie Plant.

 

Outcomes for Pupils in Receipt of the Pupil Premium

At Mosborough Primary School, all pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, make good progress as they move through the school. Our disadvantaged pupils out-perform non-disadvantaged pupils nationally by the end of their time at Mosborough Primary School.

Analysis conducted by the school based on Analyse School Performance, Local Authority data, and the schools’ own data shows a familiar pattern of achievement by disadvantaged pupils. Detailed outcomes for disadvantaged pupils can be found in our Outcomes for Pupils in Receipt of the Pupil Premium report

SAFEGUARDING AND CHILD PROTECTION

The staff and Governing Board of Mosborough Primary School place the highest priority on the responsibilities they have to actively contribute to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils, in accordance with section 175 of the Education Act 2002.

The Governing Board and staff are committed to providing a safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral developments of pupils. All reasonable measures are taken to ensure that the risks of harm to pupils’ welfare are minimised.
