School Performance Information

At Hall Meadow Primary School we are consistently pleased with our end of Year Key stage 2 SATs results and the progress our children have made since joining the school.

At Hall Meadow we continue to work hard with the children in order to make progress year on year. We celebrate this from Reception through to Year 6. All of the steps the children make lead up to their progress in Year 6. From building up phonics knowledge, decoding texts and increasing confidence in comprehension, all provides those basis skills to support the children as they move through the school. As a school we are pleased that these academic skills along with positive wellbeing and mental health support ensure our children are supported to achieve their potential.

Below are our most recent results.

Behaviour & Exclusions

Exclusions

Governors’ Policy on the use of exclusion

In any situation where exclusion is being considered, the DfEE guidance contained in Circular 10/99 and later advice will be carefully followed.

Exclusion of a pupil for any period will normally be used only after all other available strategies to improve the pupil’s behaviour have been conscientiously employed. However, as the legislation recognises, there are situations which arise suddenly and are of a particularly serious nature where exclusion will be appropriate, even though the usual procedures prior to exclusion have not been in place. This guidance tries to indicate what these situations might be and to make clear, for the benefit of the Head teacher, staff, parents and pupils, the circumstances in which the Governing Body would support the exclusion of a pupil.

Before deciding to exclude a child, the Head teacher will give careful consideration to the child’s intention in the specific incident or incidents leading to the possibility of exclusion. Whenever a child is temporarily excluded, a plan will be agreed with parents, the pupil and the staff concerned for the return of the child after the period of exclusion. The aim will always be to help the child improve his or her behaviour.

If a child is excluded from school ‘for more than 6 days, full time educational support arrangements must be made’ by the school to ensure the pupil is on track.

Immediate exclusion can be used where there is a threat to the safety of others in the school or to the pupil concerned. Such exclusion would usually be temporary, but in the most extreme circumstances permanent exclusion may be the appropriate response.

A permanent exclusion would only be made after the Head teacher has had further opportunity to consider the incident in question.

Exclusion as a final sanction; where other strategies for improving the child’s behaviour have failed and the behaviour is repeated or sustained, the following may also be grounds for exclusion:

  • bullying of another child, in the form of physical attack, emotional abuse or through racist, sexual or other forms of verbal abuse
  • verbal or physical abuse of a member of staff
  • damage to or destruction of property
  • Persistent disruption or disobedience which prevents other children from learning.
