Introduction
Dear Parents/GuardiansThank you for wanting to find out more aboutThe Snaith School. I hope that you will find thisprospectus helpful.In September 2005 we were designated as aSpecialist School in Business and Enterprise.Designation has brought significant fundinginto the school which has been used to improveaccommodation, resources and provideopportunities for all our pupils.At The Snaith School we recognise the needto prepare children to be able to flourish andprosper throughout their lives by continuallystriving to be a centre of high quality learningin the community. This means fostering apassion for life-long learning and a positiveattitude to acquiring new skills, knowledge andunderstanding.We believe that we provide a high qualitycomprehensive education for pupils aged 11-16in offering a curriculum which allows pupils todevelop their talents and abilities to the full.We value each child as an individual where theyfeel that they matter, know they are makingprogress and have the support, encouragement,guidance and opportunities to unlock anddevelop their potential.The staff are highly committed and workextremely hard to provide an excellenteducation for all our pupils.With the school working in partnership withparents, our pupils develop self-confidence,self-esteem and respect for others, qualitiesthat will be of benefit all their lives. We providequality education, outstanding pastoral care,excellent examination results, high standards ofbehaviour and care for others and for the schoolenvironment.

Pastoral Care
The school’s basic expectation is that all pupilscome to school to learn and achieve. Wetherefore expect high standards of behaviour inclass and around the school from all our pupilsand they are not expected to undermine theseexpectations. Pupils have a voice in how theschool is run through the Sports, Key Stage andSchool Councils.The school has a clearly defined Anti-bullyingPolicy supported by an Anti-Bullying WorkingGroup and we do not tolerate bullying amongour pupils. We encourage openness aboutbullying as we believe that a climate ofopenness undermines and challenges bullyingbehaviour.As pupils progress through the school, theyare encouraged to accept responsibility andto develop a sense of self-discipline and tounderstand and help others who may haveproblems. To foster a sense of responsibilityamong the pupils, a prefect system operates inYear 11.The school wishes to encourage theachievement and to recognise effort and successin all areas of school life. The school’s disciplinepolicy motivates and promotes good behaviouron an individual level thereby building a positiveatmosphere, which is conducive to learning.Regular recognition of effort, performance andgood behaviour is important in developing apupil’s confidence and self-esteem. In additionto the many opportunities to praise pupilswhich arise during the course of a school day,we have a system of rewards to support thisprocess.Form Tutors are responsible for keeping anoverall view of the welfare of the pupils in theirgroup. Each Year Group has a Head of Year whoworks with the Form Tutors, to help and counselpupils and to arrange social events for that Year.The Head of Year should be the first point ofcontact in the school for parents with concernsabout a child’s educational progress or socialwell being, or if a parent wishes to pass oninformation relevant to their child’s schooling.

It is vital to have strong links between parentsand school. From the beginning of Year 7,when parents of the new intake are invitedinto school, through to Year 11, we welcomeparental support. It is hoped that parents willtake an interest in their child’s work and discussprogress and any problems which arise. Furthercontact will be made through the progressreports and by Parents’ Evenings. We wouldask you to make every effort to attend thesemeetings.In Year 7 towards the end of the first term, aninterim report based on effort in the varioussubject areas will be sent home. The report alsocontains a Form Tutor comment on how thepupil has settled into school, is making progressetc. This will be followed by a Parents’ Eveningearly in the Spring Term when parents candiscuss progress with the Form Tutor, Head ofYear, SENCO and Senior Staff.Towards the end of the summer term parentswill receive an academic report and an end of year review completed by the pupil.Parents should be aware that the East Riding hasan Educational Welfare Officer who works withthe school in matters such as pupil attendanceand part time employment of pupils.
