Homework is a good way to extend and reinforce the learning which takes place in the classroom. It may involve reading, research, revision learning by heart or talking at home. Some students prefer to do homework straight away at the end of the day and the School Library – with computers – stays open to allow that to happen. I implore you to take note of the subjects that are to be set each night and to support your child by ensuring that work is completed. Much of our homework can also be accessed through Moodle-Do our virtual learning platform.

Live streaming: responding to the risks
Dear Parents/ Carers
It is our goal to help our young people to grow into successful adults.
The work we undertake with students is based on a clear vision of what school is all about. We believe that it is important for the whole school community, including parents, to share these principles in order to help to build a meaningful partnership between home and school.
Our fundamental responsibilities are:-
- to promote educational attainment
- to work in partnership with other agencies and organisations
- to ensure that children have readiness for learning
- to place particular emphasis on those learners who may be at risk of underachievement, marginalisation or exclusion.
We will, therefore, continue to maintain and develop a curriculum which matches the learning needs of all our students, taking account of their special needs or particular gifts and talents.
We appreciate your support in this.
At Foxford School we encourage children to fulfill their potential. We want our students to have a positive attitude to lifelong learning and be able to show initiative.
All students with special abilities are encouraged to access a range of learning activities that will extend and challenge them. Their progress in all subjects is monitored to ensure that their needs are being met. Activities on and off the school site are regularly organised and include, workshopes, visits, challenge days and master classes. There are also performances, competitions and further training activities for students with particular talents.
When assessing our provision we use the following definitions:
Gifted students are generally those who show a high level of skill in more than one subject, with ability higher than those of their age and usually in academic subjects.
A Talented student will display a high level of skills, or has the potential to achieve at a high standard, in more creative or physical subjects such as Music, Art, and P.E. or in any sport or other creative art.
More able’ students will demonstrate consistently high ability, potential or attainment in one or more subjects. Often more able are identified as achieving above the core of the year in any curriculum area.
Students, who are both Gifted and Talented, are those who display a range of high level skills in both academic and creative subjects.
At Foxford we are proud of the way that we support all of our students through their time with us. We have well established provision for students with additional leaning needs, who speak English as an additional language and those who are able, gifted or talented.

“An inclusive school where everyone matters”
Foxford’s Learning Support department provides:
This means that students may be offered provision that is appropriate to their needs in a variety of ways:
1. Through inclusive teaching within the classroom; differentiation and support that enables a student to access the curriculum and make progress. This is the main and most common method of supporting needs, for example, students with dyslexia benefit from subject specific vocabulary being on displayed in a classroom.
2. Through specific interventions provided for some students. This usually takes the form of a structured programme of support, carefully targeted and delivered by teachers, teaching assistants or inclusion tutors who have the skills to help pupils achieve their learning objectives. This can occur outside whole-class lessons or be built into mainstream lessons as part of guided work.
3. Through individual programmes for a small number of students where it is necessary to provide highly-tailored intervention. This may be in the form of one-to-one sessions or specialist interventions from school staff or external agencies.
We work with a large number of students, sometimes throughout their whole school life, sometimes for a fixed period of time. The range of needs includes:
Above all we value working closely with parents and carers for the benefit of your child. We fully acknowledge that parents and carers are the expert on your child and your support and partnership improves the possible outcomes for your child.
Should you need to make a complaint please contact the school. Foxford School welcomes contact from parents and carers and the learning support department will be pleased to meet with you or answer any questions and enquiries.
