Code of Behaviour
There is an expectation of high standards of personal behaviour and respect for others which we hope you will encourage and support.
Children’s achievements are celebrated in a special Celebration Assembly held every Monday. They do find this very motivating. Rewards also include stickers, certificates, praise and the opportunity to share their work with other staff and children. Considerate behaviour is also noticed at break and lunch times.
Everyone has the right to:
- Feel safe, be cared for and be respected
- Be able to learn to the best of his/her ability and to develop whatever skills he/she possesses
- Be treated equally irrespective of gender, race, physical characteristics or any other factors
- Learn and play without disruption
Everyone is expected to:
- Be responsible for their own behaviour
- Respect the rights of others.
We say No to Bullying, whether verbal or physical, it has no place in our school. We ask for all parents and pupils to help us by reporting immediately any incidents so that we can deal firmly and fairly with any bullies, involving parents if appropriate. Please see the copy of our Anti Bullying Policy below, as well as our Behaviour and Discipline policy.
Langmoor is a Community School dating from 1955 that is part of a Multi Academy Trust with Glenmere Primary School, Little Hill Primary School, both of which are part of the Wigston development group, as well as Fernvale Primary School which is part of the OLP & Hinckley Parks Primary School. Seven generously sized, self-contained, closed classrooms are the bases for most of children’s working time in school, of which one is a preschool facility. Much work also takes place in our equipped computer suite, the school hall, library areas, music and resources centre and the extensive grounds. A brand new demountable building, ‘The Ridge’, was installed in September 2015 and the EYFS occupy one half of the building. They have a purpose built outdoor area for learning, and the other half of the building holds cooking and conference facilities as well as the Non-fiction library. Our preschool also provides a breakfast club facility starting at 7.45am until the start of school. There is a kitchen where school meals are prepared for Langmoor and also for St John Fisher Primary School, and two playgrounds on each side of the main building complete the picture, as well as a purpose built Outdoor Area for EYFS.
In 2012 ongoing internal and external refurbishment work was started with classrooms being repainted and recarpeted and toilet refurbishment. Both playgrounds have been regenerated and markings have been added and work on the Outdoor Learning Centre has progressed and there is a constructed pond, a shelter, decking and class gardens. The introduction of a preschool has been established with self-contained kitchen area within the facility. Outdoor shelters have been introduced as part of a long term initiative with a trim trail, amphitheatre and safety gates erected at the front and rear of the school
Children start at Langmoor in our Reception class and transfer to Gartree High School at eleven years of age, after Y6. From September 2017 however the school will retain Year 6 and the children will transfer to a choice of 3 High Schools to complete their KS3 and 4 education. Numbers on roll were predicted to increase over the next few years. The school has been one form entry since 2013.
Langmoor has a varied catchment area covering a wide range of social backgrounds. In each cohort there is a wide range of ability, which is reflected in the attainment of pupils at every stage. Typically, results in KS1 are unusually broad in their profile, showing a relatively high number of pupils achieve well above average at the ends of the range.
Langmoor is a one form entry primary school with an independent preschool facility
Information below comes from Analysing School Performance – final data for 2016/2017.
● The minority of our pupils come from our catchment area. 37%
● Our school deprivation indication is 0.15
● The socio-economic background of the area is below the national average - Deprivation affecting children being ranked 70th out 276 in Leicestershire.
● The school is smaller than average primary schools having 213 pupils compared to the national average of 279 – numbers currently increasing.
● The number of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is 21.2%, which is slightly lower than the national average of 23.5%
● The percentage of pupils whose first language is not English is slightly lower than average at 18.5% compared to 20.9% nationally
● The percentage of children identified as having SEND support needs, is 6.6% which is below the national average of 12.4%
● The percentage of pupils identified as having statements or EHCP’s is 0.5% which is slightly below the national average of 1.4%
● The school has a deprivation score of 0.15 with the national average being 0.21
● The percentage of pupils from minority ethnic groups is 51.1% compared to 32.9% nationally.
●Attendance - The overall attendance figures for the school remains at 95% and efforts by the school to improve this have not been successful. This is largely due to many of the parents working full or part time and their annual leave does not always fall in line with school holidays; the situation is further exacerbated by some families taking extended holidays to India, Pakistan etc.
● Outstanding behaviour of pupils who are very enthusiastic about learning which is commented on by visitors (class observations, comments, SIP advisors, Ofsted report 2010-11.)
