Wyborne Primary School in Greenwich has achieved the Inclusive School Award.
A Diverse Intake
Wyborne Primary School is situated in the Southern-most part of the Royal Borough of Greenwich bordering the boroughs of Bromley and Bexley. The school intake derives from both relatively affluent owner-occupied residences as well as from the surrounding council estates. The school has a diverse intake but with no predominant ethnic group.
Children Come First
Wyborne is a Forest School and the curriculum is reflective of this which is particularly relevant at the moment when outdoor learning is deemed to be safer. Children come first at Wyborne, strong positive relationships between the school and its very many stakeholders are encouraged and cultivated, in particular with children and families.
Relationships Between Home and School Were Strengthened
During lockdown Wyborne stayed open to support the children of keyworkers and to provide home learning for children who did not attend. Teachers and Teaching Assistants regularly contacted children at home, particularly the most vulnerable and if anything, relationships between home and school were strengthened.
Enjoying the Outdoors
It was a joy to hear the noise from the playground of children running, laughing and experiencing and enjoying the outdoors once again. WPS recognise that making the best use of outdoor spaces in a safe and structured environment has been very beneficial to the mental health and wellbeing of the children in their care.
Responding to Individuals’ Needs
Partnerships with external agencies is intrinsic to catering for and responding to the individual needs of learners. They provide additional expert advice, guidance and support for young people with a range of special needs including children and families who have struggled through lock down imposed as a result of Covid19.
Strong Inclusive Values
Here staff work closely together to ensure focused and specific targets are set to meet each child’s developmental and education needs. A combination of robust teaching and learning strategies, strong inclusive values, a thorough tracking system and excellent behaviour systems, support the progress of all pupils including those from low starting points, pupil premium etc.
Making Very Good Use of Information
Teachers make very good use of information and data from assessments, from marking books and from individual feedback to pupils. They plan their lessons accordingly and differentiate work well. A variety of teaching and learning approaches are evident and feedback from teachers, oral and written, and self-evaluation makes a positive contribution to learning.
