If you are new, or curious about our school, I hope this website gives you a flavour of the wonderful learning that takes place here.
If you are an existing parent, I hope that you find the website informative, helping you keep up to date with your child's learning and all the exciting things that are taking place throughout the school.
At Berrycoombe we have high aspirations and hopes for your child. We will ensure they love their learning and have fun. That they feel safe at school and fulfil their full academic potential.
We are friendly, informal and always willing to listen, support and help.
The lead inspector was David Edwards, HMI.
We are happy to announce that our inspection report has now been published and we can share it with you.
This was a one day inspection and the school remains a 'Good' School. You will see that the style of the report is different to previous reports and is a letter addressed to the head teacher.
We are proud of this result and especially with knowing that the inspector walked away from the school impressed with the children's behaviour and attitude to learning.
We are also pleased to hear how you feel about our school.
‘Teachers celebrate each child’s success as they progress. They never give up on our children!’
‘We love that the school encourages every child to do their best,’
Our Library is online
Teachers will have supplied you with Myon log in details.
Once your child has logged on, they will have access Myon which is like Netflix for books. There are over 5700 books that you child can read. A whole library at their finger tips.
The books are carefully levelled so they match your child’s reading level. There are thousands of books to read, and children have the option of reading themselves, or having the book read to them. They can instantly look up words they do not know and are able to take short online multiple-choice quizzes at the end of the book to see how well they have understood.
This uses the same accelerated reader technology we use in school with the older children (KS2) and teachers can assess and feedback on how your child is doing. The children already understand what to do but just in case, each teacher has provided a short tutorial on their class page on the school website. Just click on the ‘Classroom’ tab and select your child’s class.
