  • Dealing With Concerns

    Dealing with concerns - a guide for parents

    The Catholic Church regards parents as the first educators of their children. At St Anne’s, all members of staff are fully committed to this viewpoint and seek to work in close collaboration with you over all aspects of your child’s education and pastoral care.

    Most of the time, things go smoothly. However, on occasions we recognise that you may have a concern over something that has happened at school. In these instances, we never want you to worry unnecessarily and encourage you to make contact with us to discuss your concern as soon as possible. It is difficult for us to investigate properly an incident or problem that has happened some time ago.

    We always welcome suggestions for improving our work in the school. Be assured that no matter what you want to tell us, our support and respect for you and your child in the school will not be affected in any way.

    Your initial contact is likely to be with your child’s class teacher, though she or he may suggest another member of staff is better placed to deal with your concern. Please contact the class teacher in the usual way (via the school office or email: teachers@stannes-school.uk). It is helpful if you can give an overview of your concern at this point so that the teacher can prepare for a meeting with you.

    Once you have met the class teacher, you or she may decide that a more senior member of staff needs to become involved; this will usually be the relevant phase leader (Mrs McLennon for Reception and Year 1, Mrs Smith for Years 2, 3 & 4, or Mrs Ferendinos for Years 5 & 6) or it might be Mrs Smith in her role as acting SENCO. More time may also be needed to properly investigate your concern before it can be satisfactorily resolved.

    We recognise the need to be clear about the difference between a concern and a complaint. Taking informal concerns seriously at the earliest stage reduces the number that develop into formal complaints. We aim to ensure that concerns are handled, if at all possible, without the need for formal procedures. Our complaints procedure is only necessary if efforts to resolve the concern informally are unsuccessful. In most cases, the process outlined above will effectively address your concerns.

    We follow the complaints procedure developed by Surrey County Council. Once you have given the opportunity to the relevant member of staff to resolve your complaint but you are unhappy with the outcome, the next stage is to refer the complaint to the acting headteacher, Miss Renaut. She will investigate and report back to you. If you are still unhappy at this point, governors become involved. You can find full details of our complaints procedure by clicking here.

  • Pupil Premium

    Pupil Premium

    Pupil premium funding is allocated to St Anne's School for children who are either currently eligible for free school meals or have been at any point in the last six years. We use this additional funding in a number of ways, including 1-1 support, emotional support and financial assistance with residential trips, outings and clubs. Each eligible child has an individual plan drawn up by their class teacher in conjuction with parents and the deputy headteacher (whose leadership responsibilities include pupil premium).

    We greatly improved our approach to pupil premium provision in 2019-20 and these changes are continuing this year. We will formally review our strategy in the summer term 2021.

    You can see details of how we spent our pupil premium funding in 2019-20 and its impact by clicking here

    If you would like more details about pupil premium or information to see if your child could be eligible for pupil premium funding, please click here. We would encourage any parent or carer who thinks their child may be eligible for pupil premium funding to contact the school office. All discussions will be entirely confidential.

  • School Policies
  • Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)

    St Anne’s is committed to providing an appropriate and high-quality education to all the children at our school. We believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. This curriculum should be accessible to them, and they should be fully included in all aspects of school life. Our SEND policy and documents below meet the requirements of the 2014 Children & Families Act and other relevant legislation. 

    At St Anne’s we believe quality first teaching is vital to ensure all children’s needs are met in all areas of learning. We recognise that in some cases, outside agency support and advice is needed and work alongside them to support children in their learning.  At every stage we feel it is important to work alongside parents in supporting children’s learning. 

    Our acting SENCO is Mrs Smith. She is contactable by phone via the school office, by phone (01737 350012, option 3) or by email (sen@stannes-school.uk).

  • Sport

    Sport

    At St Anne’s, we are committed to ensuring that all children have a good understanding of what it means to live a healthy lifestyle. We try to expose the children to a range of sports and activities whilst developing each child’s agility, balance, coordination and sense of healthy competition. We have a cross curricular approach and link our learning in science and maths to our PE lessons. We also regularly speak to the children about the importance of exercise and meditation to our mental health.

    The children have a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, made up of a games lesson (usually using our new all weather AstroTurf pitch) and an indoor lesson of gymnastics/dance/yoga. Children are taught key skills in athletics, hockey, tennis, netball and football but also take part in rugby, golf and cricket lessons. Years 3 – 6 take part in swimming lessons run by external teachers; these are held at Tadworth Leisure Centre. Specialised coaches are invited in for football, cricket and rugby – but we are looking to expand further (COVID permitting). Each class enjoy their 10 minute mile 3x per week, where each class runs for 10 minutes. This is proven to boost children’s fitness but also their ability to concentrate in class.

    Usually, throughout the year, we hold inter-house competitions in football, netball and multi-skills and we hold a yearly Sports Day where all children compete in a range of activities, including javelin, sprinting, slow bike races and hurdles.

    Up until the pandemic, our after school clubs included netball, football, dance, drama, keep fit, karate and athletics.

    Our netball teams have excelled in recent years, winning the past three District Netball tournaments and progressing to the regional tournament. Our football teams, from year groups 2 - 6 mostly win their games and are usually in 1st or 2nd place in the local tournaments. Our girls’ football teams are gaining hugely in popularity and are increasingly successful. Last year, prior to Covid 19, our athletes won both the local cross country competition and the District Sports. Sporting opportunities start in the infants with a few competitions and then increase as the children move through the school.

    We also try to give the children opportunities to develop their leadership skills. A group of Year 6 children are selected each year as the ‘Sports Crew’. These children receive training and support children in younger years with sports at playtimes. In Year 5, children can volunteer to be part of the ‘Physifun Club’. These children were able to lead small sports sessions in their year group.
