Statutory School Information
Admissions Consultation Documents for admission from September 2020.
Under 'The School Information (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012' which came into force on 1st September 2012, schools now have to publish specific sets of information on their websites.
This page is designed to help you find these pieces of information on our school website. Direct links to other pages are below.
School Admission Arrangements
Please follow the link to our 'Policies' page below to find a copy of our most recent Admission Policy.
Since becoming part of Rutland Learning Trust, we are our own Admission Authority for in-year admissions. Please contact the school if you would like to inquire about admission of a child during the school year or into any year group other than EYFS.
Rutland County Council, who you can contact on 01572 722577 and ask for admissions, organise admissions for children starting school in EYFS.
In the case of the school being oversubscribed, our criteria are as follows:
1. Looked After/ Previously Looked After Child.
2. Children whose place of residence is within the catchment area of the school.
3. Children who already have a sibling at the school who is expected to be on roll at the school at the time of admission of the younger sibling.
4. Children who have a special educational, medical or domestic need.
5. Children who live nearest the school by distance.
Following the National Offer Day on 16 April 2019, the deadline for lodging an on-time appeal is 24 May 2019 (9am). Our appeals are heard by Peterborough Diocese Board of Education.
The Appeal Clerk will send notification of the Hearing (Venue, Date and Time) and the Statement of Case to the Appellants by 4 June 2019.
On-time appeals will be heard by 25 June 2019.
Proposed appeal hearing dates are between Thursday 20 June and Tuesday 25 June 2019 (inclusive).
Decision letters will be sent within 5 working days of the appeal hearing, subject to any unforeseen circumstances.
Our Most Recent Ofsted Report
This was carried out in March 2014 when inspectors found the school to be 'good'.
Please follow the link to our 'useful information' page below to find a link to our most recent Ofsted Report. School performance tables are published on the DFE website at www.education.gov.uk/schools/performance/index.html . Please note, that as we are a small school our data is not always available as cohort numbers are often 10 or less.
The Most Recent Key Stage 2 Results
We have not published our Key Stage 2 SATs results for 2016, 2017 or 2018 as we have had small cohorts of under 5 children. Please be aware that our cohorts are small and fluctuate from year to year in number, in ability and in level of SEND. Each child in recent years has accounted for between 25% and 100%. We are proud of all of our children's achievements and they have made good progress from their starting points.

The name of the Key Stage 1 Phonics and Reading Scheme
At EYFS and Key Stage 1 we use 'Read, Write, Inc.' as the basis for our phonics teaching, which we have adapted for our mixed age classes. For Reading, we use a range of reading schemes, including: Ginn, Oxford Reading Tree and Project X amongst others. Books are book-banded according to the Book Banding Scheme.
Please find a copy of our most recent Behaviour Policy through the link on our 'Policies' page below.
Pupil Premium is an additional amount of money allocated to schools depending on: the number of pupils who are, or who have been, eligible to receive free school meals; the number of children who are, or who have been under the care of the local authority; and children who come from a service family.
At present a number of children qualify for this additional amount of money. Families are sometimes entitled to free school meals, but choose not to take this option. We encourage all families who are entitled to free school meals to register and maintain their free school meal eligibility so that the children still attract the pupil premium.
This money has enabled us to provide extra resources, and employ an additional teaching assistant to support these pupils and others with similar needs in accessing the curriculum.
Please see Pupil Premium documents on our 'useful documents' page for further details of how this money is spent.
SEND School Offer
We currently have 19% of our children on our SEND Register for a variety of learning needs. The school's Inclusion Policy alongside details of our School Offer and the County Local Offer for SEND can be found on the 'useful documents' page. You will also find some information guides and leaflets for parent to explain the process for supporting children with SEND in our school.
This policy can be found in the 'policies' section of our website.
We hope that a flavour of our school ethos runs throughout our website. Details can also be found on our Ethos and Values page.
At Exton & Greetham CE Primary School we believe that physical activity, a healthy diet and emotional wellbeing are the key to a happy and healthy lifestyle. We have therefore looked to allocate our Sports Premium Funding to support these aims and create opportunities for all of our children.
Details of how this funding has been allocated and spent can be found on our 'useful information' page.
Year 6 Swimming Competency
As we have less than 5 children in year 6 in 2018, we will not report directly the number of year 6 children this academic year who are able to:
- Swim confidently, competently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- Use a range of strokes effectively
- Perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations.
Our cohorts are small and fluctuate from year to year in number. Each child in recent years has accounted for between 25% and 100%. Over the past 3 academic years 75% of year 6 leavers have been able to complete the three swimming competencies listen above.
We take all of our children swimming from year 4-6 in order to develop swimming skills.
