Children are More Than A Score

We have been showing the following clip to our Year 6 children this week, we  thought you may like to watch too.

Primary school is a time for self-discovery, building confidence and nourishing potential. But primary school children in England are being let down by a system that cares more about measurement than their education.

Our system is obsessed with league tables, turning children into data points and denying them a broad, stimulating education at key stages in their development. It puts an unnecessary burden on children, parents and teachers alike.

In SATs results week, some famous faces were recruited to send an inspiring message to year 6 pupils, their parents and their teachers.

We hope you enjoy the film and will share it too.

You can find the video on YouTube

Wellbeing Award

We have some exciting news to share with you. We are about to start The Wellbeing for Schools Award which is developed in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau (NCB). This Award is intended to help schools prepare and equip themselves to promote emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across the whole-school community. The NCB’s vision is an education system where good emotional wellbeing and mental health are at the heart of the culture and ethos of all schools, so that pupils, with the support of their teachers, can build confidence and flourish. Evidence shows us that wellbeing is of central importance to learning and attainment, with high levels of wellbeing associated with improved academic outcomes.

Here, at Roding we recognise the needs and demands of the school are changing and we are committed to responding to these.   

Please follow the link below to complete the survey.


Thank you for your support.  Mrs de Graaf, Lead SEN teacher.

OnLine safetyParent Panel Vac

Give your views

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to your children's enjoyment, dealing with poor behaviour and care for the pupils. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.

Information you provide will be used when making decisions about which schools to inspect and when. We would value anyone’s contribution to this.  If you have already registered with Parent View, please log in to complete the questionnaire.

Email addresses are used to help prevent site misuse. Only Ofsted will have access to this information. 

Positive feedback is really valuable.
