Arreton St George's C Of E Primary School

REF NR: 3415

Arreton St.George's CE (Church of England) Primary School is a village day school in Arreton, midway between Sandown and Newport in the Isle of Wight. It caters for the 4 to 9 age group and is co-educational. Around 80 children attend and the adjoining nursery provides pre-school education and holiday clubs. The school consists of three classes: Class 1 contains Reception and Year 1 pupils, Class 2 contains both Years 1 and 2, and Class 3 contains Years 3 and 4.

The main intake of new pupils is in September. All parents must apply for a place to the Local Education Authority, irrespective of where they live - admission packs are available from the school and contain all the necessary information. Applications must be returned to County Hall by the end of January in the year that the child will be starting school. Parents and children who are due to start school are most welcome to make a preliminary visit to meet staff and pupils. The school holds an annual open day and we also provide an opportunity for children to spend time in the reception class before they start school.

In the summer of 2002, the school was awarded the Kite Mark. This award is given for 'Excellence in the Early years'. Marion East (the early years co-ordinator for the Island) came to the school to present the award and met the parents and children of Class 1.

According to Ofsted (2008): "The outstanding achievement levels reflect the high quality of learning and teaching. Relationships are very strong and teachers know and meet the needs of their pupils very well. Pupils are very well motivated by some interesting and varied approaches in lessons. Parents wrote of the pupils' high level of interest and pride in work."
