Each child at Wombridge primary school is part of a house team. The children are rewarded with house points for excellent work and attitude. Special assemblies are held regularly to present awards and to celebrate outstanding achievements.
School Code of Conduct
Through school and class council the children have discussed what they think a school code of conduct should be.
They have come up with 4 simple rules;
Look After Each Other.
Do your best and help others to do their best too.
The teachers are committed to supporting the children in upholding these rules.
Parents considering Wombridge School for their children are invited to visit by making an appointment with our School Administrator on 01952 388040. You will be made most welcome.
School admits children as per Telford and Wrekin Admission policy. This is available below.
When children are admitted to the school, parents or carers are asked to meet with a member of the Senior Leadership Team and the Class Teacher to discuss induction arrangements and set out expectations.

Just as every child is different so is every school.
The Government believes that the pupil premium, which is the additional grant the school receives for children eligible for Free School Meals, children in care and children from service families, is the best way to address current inequalities by ensuring that resources to tackle disadvantage reaches those students who need it most. The Pupil Premium Funding helps us ensure we are compared fairly to other schools and gives the children of Wombridge the opportunity to show how they perform when given the same access to learning as others may receive.
It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual students within their responsibility.

Summary of PPG spending 2015/16
Objectives in spending PPG:
To raise awareness of those FSM within each class and year group so these are specifically known
To improve reading attainment.
To co-ordinate support for FSM and other vulnerable groups through a senior member of staff
To raise awareness in all staff of possible characteristics and strategies for improving performance in FSM and vulnerable groups.
To provide catch-up interventions to close the gap between FSM and all pupils.
To continue to support the improvement of attendance.
Summary of actions taken and outcomes to date:
The school has invested significant sums in new reading material and opened library areas which mean all children have access to a range of stimulating and exciting books.
The expenditure will be focused to reduce gaps between FSM and non-FSM pupils. Initiatives, such as the non-fiction library will heighten the exposure of children to literature and widen their understanding and knowledge of the world. This can then be applied across their school work.
The Apple TVs will increase the exposure and usage of Apple products already within the school, meaning greater motivation and modelling / celebration of children’s work both during and post sessions.
Increased access to a range of ICT equipment and programmes ensures the children are developing the skills needed to achieve in an ever changing world. The iPads allow the children to access and develop their learning in new and creative ways.
Investment in training for all staff for Literacy and Phonics resulted in better targeting of children. This training allowed for a more focussed program of phonics in Key Stage 1.

Our School Governors
Governors are volunteers, representing different groups in the community with interests in the success of the school, including parents, staff and the Local Education Authority. Governors bring a variety of useful skills, particularly in the areas of finance, buildings, staffing and the curriculum, for which there are committees.
Together the governors will:
Monitor the performance and progress of our children.
Work with the staff to help them teach and care for our children.
Decide on how the resources of the school are best used.
Support our children to be successful and improve their learning.
Challenge our school so it continually improves and develops.
Be involved in the day to day life of the school.
The governors meet regularly to make decisions regarding your child’s education. They deal with a whole range of issues including the curriculum, safeguarding, the building, national and local education initiatives and the school budget.
How do we do this?
We meet together at least three times a year as a whole team, and in small groups about Finance, Staffing and the Curriculum.
