Working with other schools (FOSS)

Waldringfield Primary School works closely with three other local schools, Bealings, Bucklesham and Nacton.

Together we are a family of small schools (FOSS).

We share together in joint development, special activities and focus days and opportunities for the children to get together, particularly in Year 6 before the move to high school.

 

We collaborate in a variety of ways:

  • Our children share learning opportunities with joint projects and sporting competitions
  • Joint teaching observations occur between schools to improve classroom practice.
  • Our teachers regularly moderate and check the standard of children’s work in writing and maths across the schools to ensure standards are equally high and improving
  • Senior Leaders carry out reviews (mini-inspections) of the other schools to develop rigorous improvement strategies and support future development
