Welcome to SET Maidstone and Causton School. I am proud to be the Head of School of a School where the children are at the heart of everything we do. Ofsted identified in July 2018 that we ‘work effectively as a team to promote the School’s ethos: ‘enjoy, achieve, thrive’.
Attendance Procedures Why regular School attendance is so important: To achieve your full potential – an attendance percentage of 90% means the equivalent of 20 missed days of learning; To build confidence and self-esteem – children who miss a lot of School time often feel nervous about returning to school and can find it harder
What is Pupil Premium? The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most. The Pupil
Sport Premium This funding – provided jointly by the Department for Education and Education Funding Agency– can only be spent on provision of PE and sport. This means we can use the premium to: develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our Schools already offer; make improvements now that will benefit pupils
Transition is when your child moves from one educational phase to the next, for example from Key Stage One (age 5-7) to Key Stage Two (7-11). Change is a normal part of life and can provide opportunities for children to develop their resilience. At SET Maidstone and Causton, the transition period is gradual which allows the children to adapt to their new routine. Class teachers will monitor any children who may need extra time and support to adapt.
