Welcome from the Headteacher
Welcome to our website. As you can see when you have a look around the website, we are a very busy school, with a fantastic staff who are keen to give the pupils many opportunities. The children feel safe and well looked after because we make care and nurturing a priority.
The photographs on our events page under Parental Information, show some of the activities that have taken place recently. The school runs a lot of after school and lunchtime clubs which many of the children take part in.
We are very proud of our sporting achievements. We encourage as many children to take part as possible, both for fun and to compete against other schools. We have been successful in many sports. Photographs of some of the competitions we have entered are on our sports section.
The achievements of our pupils in their SATs assessment, including a progress measure compare positively with national standards - we try to cater for all individuals and our aim is to work hard to ensure all pupils achieve the best they possibly can. A link to the Government Performance Tables can be found in the 'Web Links' section.
We are proud to have been graded "Outstanding" in our most recent inspection in September 2011.
'Felsted is an outstanding school. Parents and carers are very appreciative of the school’s work; as one commented, ‘It is the best school our children have ever been to. They love school and their skills and knowledge since being here have far exceeded our expectations.’ It provides an exciting and varied curriculum and challenging learning opportunities that considerably enrich and empower all of its pupils and enable them to achieve outstandingly well. The school has long had a reputation for the excellent way it nurtures all pupils and supports their needs.'
There is a link to this report in the Web Links section.
The school currently has places in Year 1 and Year 2 only.
The provision for before and after school care is through Whippersnappers. Further details can be found on their website www.whipper-snappers.co.uk
