KS2 SATs scores explained
In Key Stage 2 each Year 6 child was awarded a raw score and a scaled score.
The range of scaled scores available for each KS2 test is the same, this year and in future years:
80 is the lowest possible scaled score
120 is the highest possible scaled score
A scaled score of 100 or more means that the child has met the expected standard in each test; a scaled score of 99 or less means they haven't reached the government-expected standard.

Grange Primary School Curriculum
Over the last two years we have been developing the curriculum that we provide for our children. Our main aim is to provide exciting, stimulating topics which the children become fully absorbed in using a cross-curricular approach. We strive to encompass many curriculum subjects into each topic, making them relevant and meaningful for our children.

Anti Bullying Statement
‘Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally. Bullying can take many forms (for instance, cyber-bullying via text messages, social media or gaming, which can include the use of images and video) and is often motivated by prejudice against particular groups. It might be motivated by actual differences between children, or perceived differences.’ Preventing and tackling bullying, DfE, July 2017.
Bullying is different from an argument or a fight. It is regular and deliberate. It often impacts on learning, attendance and the pupil’s self-esteem and confidence. Bullying can take many forms for example:
Damage to property or theft
Intimidation through gesture and threat, both verbal and non-verbal
Cyber – through a range of technologies – mobile phones, email and social networks
Exclusion or non-communication
At Grange Primary School we take bullying very seriously and the behaviours listed above all form part of our behaviour policy with specified consequences and actions associated with each. We deal with each incident consistently and investigate and address any allegations of bullying. Sometimes what is perceived as bullying is simply unacceptable behaviour and we will deal with this in accordance with the school behaviour policy.
We proactively educate our pupils about positive relationships, respect and how to resolve conflict through our personalised GPS Curriculum and encourage our children to share any concerns with an adult so that it can be addressed in a timely manner.
In addition to our personalised curriculum we also have mechanisms for pastoral support which include access to our Family Support Officer, and Inclusion and Family Support Assistants as well as systems for identifying and recording concerns through class worry monsters.
All allegations of bullying are recorded and monitored through CPOMS ensuring all relevant staff are aware of any situations and can monitor and take action accordingly.
If a pupil feels they are being bullied they should initially inform an adult within their class. This can be done directly through a face to face conversation or discretely. To arrange this, the pupil can record their concern on a piece of paper and place it in the class worry monster. The teacher will then arrange a convenient and discrete meeting with the pupil. The class teacher will then address the concern.
If this concern needs to be taken further the class teacher may then request Miss Lahney or Mrs Stephenson from the behaviour team to monitor or deliver bespoke intervention to address any identified needs to prevent any further incidents from taking place. If a wider piece of work needs completing with associated families, then Mrs Vickers or Mrs Alton would also become involved.
If parents/carers have any concerns with regard to bullying, then they should phone school to arrange a meeting with the class teacher initially to raise their concerns. The class teacher will then identify the best course of action and inform the relevant members of staff to address the issue. Parents/carers will be informed of actions taken and outcomes of any investigations.

Be the best you can be!
Grange Primary school is at the centre of the community, being a happy, inclusive and positive school where everyone (children, staff, parents and carers, governors and the wider
community) works together in an effective partnership.
Our school community ethos is one of mutual respect, understanding and care for all. In everything we do we accept challenges with a positive attitude, always try our best and have the highest aspirations for ourselves and each other.
Children leave Grange as confident, independent individuals with clear dreams and aspirations and the skills, enthusiasm and sense of self-worth to continue their journey to achieve these and to become responsible, respected and valuable citizens in our community, our town and the wider world with strong moral values and beliefs.
Our Core Values:
For all members of Grange School Community we want to develop and embed our agreed core values and:

Grange Primary School Complaints Procedure
We really do appreciate feedback from parents/carer, so do feel free to let us know what has gone well or what would make things even better. Our doors are always open, and we try our best to be as approachable and as welcoming as we can, so please do not hesitate to come in and discuss any concerns, however minor they may seem with the most appropriate person. We would much rather tackle any concerns at the earliest stage, to resolve the concern and reduce the possibility of them becoming a formal complaint.
If, in the hopefully unlikely situation that you do have a complaint, the procedure is detailed in the document below.
We do carry out regular questionnaires to find out about how you feel about the school and give you the opportunity to express your views. We also encourage parents to update the parent view site, as and when they want to. This is something that Ofsted will look at when they carry out school inspections. The website address is https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/
Parents/Carers are invited to respond to children's annual reports and we also have a suggestion box which is located in the main school entrance.
If you have any other suggestions about how you would like to share your views, please do let us know.
