Floor Standards

The Government publishes educational Floor Standards which are revised each year.


Each term the newsletter gives information about the curriculum the children will be studying. With the release of the new national curriculum for September 2014 Mugginton CE VC Primary School are developing our own long term plans which cater for the needs of our multi-age classes and the specific needs of the children in our school. These will be posted on the web site when they are complete


MPS has developed an in-house system of assessment.

Pupils are assessed against 15-20 core objectives in each subject using a mixture of work scrutiny, test performance and observations made by the teacher and support staff. A score of 1-9 is awarded for the assessment of each objective with 1-3 being below the expected standard, 4-6 meeting the expected standard and 7-9 working at a greater depth. Scores for each objective, which are colour coded, are aggregated to produce a total score for that subject at that assessment point Assessments take place each term (6 times per school year) and staff will have two ‘Pupil Progress Discussions’ with the Headteacher twice per year to look at the data and plan additional support for pupils at risk of falling behind.

The advantages of this system are:

  • It is very easy to track progress over time.
  • Using the coloured system, progress and attainment are easy to measure, describe and talk about.
  • Children at risk of falling behind are quickly identified, and specific gaps (which of the key objectives can’t they do?) can be corrected.
  • It is a ‘teacher-led’ system. It does not use a complex (and expensive) computer algorithm to decide where the pupils are; staff use their professional judgement and expertise to make assessments.
  • It is very easy to share with pupils, Governors and parents.

A copy of a PowerPoint presentation about the assessment system in our school is available here.


The school’s responsibilities relating to safeguarding are extensive and very important. Staff have to attend regular safeguarding training sessions as does the designated safeguarding Governor. Safeguarding requirements are regularly changed and constantly updated. The latest regulations and advice relating to safeguarding in schools can be found on the following links:

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding which is allocated to support children who:

  • qualify for free school meals
  • are looked after by the Local Authority
  • have parents employed by the armed forces

In the 2015-2016 financial year we did not receive any Pupil Premium funds.

For the 2016-2017 financial year we expect to receive around £2,600.

For details on our Pupil Premium Strategy go to our Pupil Premium Fact Sheet

Sports Premium

We benefit from the London 2013 Olympic Legacy which still provides funds to improve physical education in schools called the Sports Premium.

In 2016-2017 our school will receive around £8,000.  This allows us to pay for professional coaches to take both our in-school and after-school sports sessions, pay for transport for sports visits to other locations and to acquire new sport related equipment.

For more details on how we use this money and the impact it has on the pupils at Mugginton, go to our Sports Premium Fact sheet.

The School Improvement Plan

The School Improvement Plan (SIP) is the culmination of a host of activities carried out in the school to ensure that all pupils make suitable progress.

The linked diagram shows the SIP at the heart or those activities.

The SIP describes the concrete steps, which are time-bound, that the school plans to take to address issues that have been identified as needing attention.

For 2017-2018 the school has identified three priorities (the appropriate SIP is linked to each priorities):

  1. To build on our success optimising the EYFS curriculum and quality of teaching so a minimum of 80% of children achieve a good level of development at the end of the year.
  2. Ensure the teaching of early reading is optimised further so outcomes in the Year One Phonics Screening Check are above LA and national averages consistently.
  3. Ensure More-Able children achieve as well in Mathematics as they do in Reading and Writing by developing reasoning skills, further in-lesson challenge and by using Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) resources and activities


Special Educational Needs & Disability(SEND) -Educational Inclusion

 In our school we aim to offer excellence and choice to all our children, whatever their abilities or needs. We have high expectations of all our children. We aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation. We want all our children to feel that they are a valued part of our school community.

There is much more information in our SEND Offer

and the SEND Local Offer on the Parents page.
