Q. How accessible is the setting environment?

 

A. Pewsey Primary School is the main primary school in the area purposely designed for ease of access for children with disabilities. All rooms are on the ground floor with all main entrances ramped. There is a disabled toilet.

 

Q. My child needs a special diet can this be catered for?

 

A. Vegetarian options are always available and if notice is provided alternatives can be arranged in consultation with the school meals provider. Please call in to discuss this with our school office staff.

 

Q. How will my child be included in activities outside of the classroom including school trips?

 

A. All children take part in school trips and are supported by our staff. We would like all children to access after school activities and this is often done on a first come first served basis when numbers are an issue. However if your child needs adult support you will need to discuss this with the Head to see if this is viable.

 

Q. What out of school opportunities are there?

 

A. Our website offers information about sporting events and curriculum enrichment activities.

 

Q. How will you support my child’s social development?

 

A. At Pewsey Primary School we have our own Pastoral Manager Mrs Weyman and three ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) trained staff. Our team offers 1:1 nurturing sessions, structured social skills small groups and focused emotional literacy interventions. We operate a “Worry Box” system where children can leave their name in the box and Mrs Weyman will arrange to meet with them to discuss their concerns.

 

Q. What cultural backgrounds does our school offer?

 

A. Our community includes a range of cultural backgrounds and we have experience of children from different faiths, the traveller community and with children with EAL (English as an Additional Language.)
