Amazing results acknowledged…
We are very pleased to have received a letter from Patrick Leeson, Corporate Director of Education and Young People’s services for Kent, congratulating us on our successes on improving standards at the end of Reception, with an increase of 13% children achieving the Good Level of Development.
We were also commended for our sustained high standards for KS1 for children achieving 2B+ in reading, writing and mathematics and for an increase in children achieving level 3 for reading, writing and maths. This is due to the hard work and dedication of my whole staff who go that extra mile to ensure that your child has outstanding learning opportunities every day.
Downs View is a three form entry Outstanding Infant School on the outskirts of Ashford, where pupils are very happy, feel very safe and healthy, and achieve exceptionally well to attain high standards. Parents appreciate the outstanding care, guidance and exceptional support pupils receive including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities. It is not just academic standards that are high. Pupil's personal development is as outstanding as their academic progress. Their good and sometimes outstanding behaviour as well as above-average attendance reflect pupils desire to learn at school.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the five outcomes of 'Every Child Matters'. We provide a topic based curriculum which:
focuses on the development of basic skills
fosters life long learning
enhances levels of well-being for all children
enables every child to achieve their full potential
ensures personalised learning
provides real life experiences
encompasses outdoor learning opportunities
encourages parental involvement
Our Ofsted inspection of June 2011 evaluated our provision as Outstanding. We are very proud of this achievement and we encourage you to read this by clicking on the attachment below:
