EDENDORKPS

Dear Parents, It is with pleasure that I present to you the Board of Governors’ Report on Edendork P.S. for the academic year 2013/14. It is the intention of the Governors, and indeed the Principal, for you to be informed about your child’s progress at school and so this report is one of a number of ways in which information is provided. Schools are very busy places with so many initiatives happening and so this report can only serve as a “snapshot” into all the learning experiences presented in our school. It is intended this report gives you an overview and creates an opportunity for you to gain a flavour of the work, lifestyle and ethos of Edendork P.S. If you require information about your own child or have any concern, you should feel free at any time to contact the school and arrange an appointment with the Principal or your child’s teacher. Requests for additional information or clarification of any aspect of this report should be forwarded in writing to the school. On behalf of the Governors, I thank you for your support and look forward to your continued interest. I commend this report for your consideration Mr. N. Maneely Chairman

In Edendork Primary School the term “Mathematics “is synonymous with the term Numeracy throughout our school. “Numeracy is the ability to apply appropriate mathematical skills and knowledge in familiar and unfamiliar contexts and in a range of settings throughout life, including the workplace. It involves the development of:: • An understanding of key mathematical concepts and their interconnectedness; • Appropriate reasoning and problem solving skills; • The proficient and appropriate use of methods and procedures(formal and informal, mental and written); and • Active participation in the exploration of mathematical ideas and models.” (Count Read: Succeed 2010) GUIDANCE MATERIALS USED Whilst this Policy document is the result of extended discussion amongst all staff, with a lead role taken by our Numeracy Development Team, due consideration was given to externally produced guidance materials, specifically: • Every School a Good School- a policy for school improvement ( DE 2009 ) • Better Numeracy in Primary Schools (E.T.I. 2010) • Count Read: Succeed – A strategy to improve outcomes in Literacy and Numeracy. 2010 These helped define an agreed framework within which our Numeracy Policy was developed.

The Board of Governors together with the Principal, Mrs Mc Alinden, set the direction and tone of the school in all that they do and are committed to working with parents in the best interests of their children’s education. The purpose of the Complaints Procedure is to address complaints raised by parents/guardians. The procedure covers all matters relating to the actions of staff employed in the school and the application of school procedures, where they affect individual pupils. However, school staff, and the Board of Governors recognise the difference between a concern and a complaint. Taking informal concerns seriously at the earliest possible stage will reduce the numbers that develop into formal complaints. Where it becomes evident at an early stage that a matter should be dealt with according to other established procedures or appeals mechanisms, this Complaints Procedure will be set aside in favour of the agreed procedure such as Child Protection, Special Education, Admissions, Suspensions and Expulsions, Grievance, Discipline, Bullying and Harassment or the Unsatisfactory Teaching Procedure. The school will not investigate anonymous complaints, unless deemed by the school to be of a serious nature. Anonymous complaints may be investigated where they relate to alleged Child Protection matters or alleged financial impropriety. This will be at the discretion of the school.
