Supporting Siblings: Workshop for Parents
Wednesday 8 July: 9.30am -1.00pm
Lions from Zululand spent Friday 8th May in the upper school. They performed traditional songs and dances to the whole school for an hour. Workshops followed where the children learnt how to make beaded accessories and dance. The whole day was magical and highly informative and entertaining. Wow!
As with last year, the school received a PE grant of £8170 for 2015/16. The school is using this money to employ a PE coach every Monday morning on the primary site and a Karate coach every Tuesday for the whole school. The school also bought into the “Platinum” package provided by Oxford City to train staff in developing their knowledge and skills in teaching PE and provide different coaches e.g. Cricket and Rugby throughout the school year across both sites. The school is keeping data to see how this impacts on pupil attainment in PE
The school has also received £2000 Numeracy and Literacy Year 7 Catch Up Grant for 2014/15. The money was spent on (1) purchasing age appropriate fiction and non-fiction books,(2) 1 ipad, (3) Numicon resources for Number and (4) some 1:1 tuition for pupils.
Mabel Prichard School is a Strategic Partner / Partner school in the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance (OTSA). Teaching Schools are part of the government’s drive to give schools more freedom and to enable headteachers to take increasing responsibility for managing the education system. The Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance is a partnership of Oxfordshire schools, Oxfordshire County Council, The University of Oxford, The University of Reading, Oxford Brookes University and other significant educational organisations. Our vision is that by bringing together the strengths of all OTSA partners we have a unique opportunity to develop a sustainable culture of aspiration, collaboration and excellence leading to a world class education for all young people in Oxfordshire
