Welcome to Burton Pidsea Primary School
We’ll be posting information here that needs bringing to your attention – whether that be up and coming events that are now imminent or emergency information – such as school closure due to snow etc.
Welcome to our School Website
At Burton Pidsea Primary School the staff and governors aim to provide a safe and secure environment that will develop individual pupils’ knowledge, skills and attitudes to learning and encourage them to care for and respect other people and their environment. As a small school we are committed to placing children and their learning at the heart of everything we do. We have high expectations that each pupil, regardless of ability, will achieve the best they are capable of, secure in the knowledge that we value the efforts of each individual child. The hallmark of our school is the warm and friendly atmosphere. Read more >>>

Our Parent Open Evening will be on Tuesday 3rd November, 2015 from 4.00 – 6.00pm and Wednesday 4th November, 2015 from 5.00 – 7.00pm. You will be allocated a
5 minute interview to discuss your child’s progress with his/her teacher.
The DFE announced that: ‘As part of our reforms to the national curriculum, the current system of ‘levels’ used to report children’s attainment and progress will be removed from September 2014 and will not be replaced.’
The New National Curriculum was introduced in September 2014. This was compulsory for all Local Authority Schools. The new curriculum is different from the old one, there are some different things to teach but the biggest difference is that there are no longer levels for the children to work through. At Burton Pidsea Primary we will be using Milestones (covering 2 years) and Stages (covering 1 year).
Milestone One – children in Year One and Two.
Milestone Two – children in Year Three and Four.
Milestone Three – children in Year Five and Six.
Each Milestone has been divided into the Yearly expectations which we have called Stages.
Within each Stage the children will be assessed as to whether they are at a Basic, Advancing or Deep level of learning.
Basic level of learning – the teachers will model and explain to the pupils and give them high support to achieve their learning. The pupils will use skills such as name, describe, complete tasks, recall information, ask basic questions, match, use, report, label, recognise, tell, repeat, arrange and memorise. A basic level of learning is about acquiring new knowledge and skills.
Advancing level of learning – this involves greater thinking and pupils need to make some decisions. The teachers will remind and guide pupils. The pupils will use skills such as organise, modify, predict, interpret, summarise, estimate and compare. An advanced level of learning is about applying and practising knowledge and skills.
Deep level of learning – pupils will need to think more deeply, justifying their answers. The teachers will coach and ask pupils deep questions. The pupils will independently appraise, explain concepts, investigate, design, create, prove, use evidence and hypothesise. A deep level of learning is about deepening and extending knowledge and skills.
Children will have as assessment grid for writing and maths which will be stuck in the front of their books. Teachers will highlight and date the targets when a child has reached a basic, advancing or deep level of learning
