North Ealing Primary School Mission Statement
At North Ealing School, we intend to deliver the best possible learning experience to the pupils and parents. We wish to serve our local community and establish a positive, safe, sustainable, challenging and inclusive environment where everyone involved with the school can flourish. North Ealing is a ‘values-based’ learning community’ committed to the education of the whole child and a strong ethos reflecting the principles of the United Nations Children’s Rights Charter. In addition to our value-based approach underpinning all aspects of school life we believe that our faith, gender and cultural diversity enriches all in our community.
As a primary school at the heart of the community we encourage independence in the young people we support; we are ambitious for all our children through an enquiry-based approach to learning and our coherent curriculum is literacy rich, relevant, broad and enquiring. It will provide children with opportunities to be at the very centre of their learning, able to read and write in a range of contexts and confidently deploy cross discipline skills to make connections with their learning.
We challenge all our children in a supportive and optimistic ethos; we put the highest priority on communicating and including our parents; we aim to maximise the school’s resources; we plan carefully for the future, so we are able to maintain the ethos and standards presently associated with the school; we regularly review our progress. Finally, amongst the staff, we foster a sense of ownership and working as a team.
All employees are entitled to a continuous programme of training and development, so they can provide the best standards for pupils. We see ourselves as a learning school. This means a continuous and demanding agenda of improvements so that we know what changes are needed in order to improve.
Starting at North Ealing
Our intention is to make all parents feel welcome at all times and help children settle well into North Ealing. We arrange school tours throughout the school year and also specific tours for the Early Years; these are advertised on the school website.
The feedback of parents, pupils, staff and governors is vital to our development. Several of our governors are also parents, as are members of our staff. The PTA is highly successful and works closely with the school. We aim to be open and friendly and take account of positive feedback and constructive criticism.
We invite parents/carers to visit their class teacher at least once each term. Early in the autumn term we have a Meet the Teacher evening. We wish to keep parents informed as to their child’s progress. An annual report on progress and attainment is written in the summer term. All the school staff will always make time before or after school by appointment to discuss any issues which may have arisen. We believe communication and partnership are at the heart of what we offer at North Ealing.
Our Home School Agreement sets out our belief that a successful partnership between home and school helps children enjoy and achieve. Together we will promote high standards of teaching and learning and behaviours. All areas of school life will be underpinned by our learning values and we will actively encourage our positive behaviours for learning.
A newsletter is published monthly online and emailed directly to all parent/carers. We publish a list of key dates on our website within the first two weeks of each term. We also endeavour to keep parents regularly updated via text message and daily bulletins.
Alternatively, please contact the school office which is open between 8.30am – 4.30pm each school day; telephone 0208 997 2653 or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
A member of the Senior Leadership Team is always on duty before and after the school day. No problem is too small. We pledge to respond to any issue which is raised within twenty-four hours.
We would like to stress that all transactions between parents and the school are kept in the strictest confidence.
