In recent years South Baddesley CE Primary School has continued to be over-subscribed and as a consequence we have been delighted to work alongside Hampshire to offer approximately five additional spaces per year (22 pupils). In order to accommodate this we completed some small internal alterations and changed our class structure to six classes. The Friends (PFA) of South Baddesley kindly bought the school a log cabin which has allowed us to create a unique space for small group work and music tuition.
Our current structure enables us to teach the children in smaller class sizes and has led to an increased number of teaching staff working at the school. We have continued to develop our broad and balanced curriculum, using initiatives such as Woodland School to further enhance the learning of our pupils, as well as a strong focus on the arts and literature. In July 2017, our academic attainment was significantly above national standard, with 93% of the pupils achieving at least the expected standard. Our work to develop the school has meant that children continue to thrive in a small, happy, nurturing environment. Our priority remains to meet the needs of each individual child and continue to achieve excellent personal and academic outcomes for all. Through this consultation we are continuing to work in partnership with Hampshire County Council to meet the needs of the pupils we currently have on roll.
