Welcome to Inmans Primary School

Inspiring, Promoting, Supporting

On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors of Inmans Primary School, I am thrilled to welcome you to our school.

Here at Inmans we are passionate about ensuring that we offer all of our children an excellent education that is full of challenge, interest and fun. Every child who attends our school is encouraged to build their self-confidence, to develop self-reliance, to take risks without fear of failure, and to make informed decisions about their own learning. Above all, we aim to make our curriculum a stimulating experience for all our pupils, laying the foundations for success in life, regardless of gender, culture, race, background or disability. We are extremely proud of our school and the achievements of our pupils.

Inmans Primary has a strong reputation for academic, artistic and sporting success.

Our school was graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted in our last inspection in October 2019, and since then our school continues to develop, grow and succeed.

SMSC GOLD

Please see our award confirmation for 2023-2026 – SMSC GOLD Quality Mark

“Inmans Primary School is a centre of excellence for SMSC”

We are changing lives and transforming the opportunities of our students through the ‘Golden Thread of SMSC’ which has been skillfully woven throughout our curriculum. Inmans Primary School recognises that the spiritual, moral, social and cultural element of students’ education is crucial to their development as an individual. The Inmans Primary School community contributes to a purposeful learning environment that is themed to inspire a strong sense of learning and encourages children to develop a cohesive community identity – preparing its members to take their rightful place as a local, national and global citizen in modern Britain. At Inmans Primary School, we actively promote the fundamental British Values. Our aim is to develop our children’s self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence, thus equipping children to distinguish right from wrong in all of the above SMSC areas for development. Our hope is that Inmans children leave Primary Education as tolerant, liberal, respectful members of the Modern British community with an appreciation and understanding of democracy and rule of law.

At Inmans Primary School, we will:

Enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence;
Enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England;
Encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely;
Enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England;
Further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation for and respect for their own and other cultures;
Encourage respect for other people;
Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England.

Ethos and Vision

Together we will build a fun, safe and caring school that promotes the joy of learning, high personal achievement, respect for individual differences, dignity for all and equal opportunities by eliminating discrimination. At Inmans Primary School we will provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced, engaging and interesting, focused on the individual needs of each pupil and able to develop academic, functional, vocational and creative skills.
We will nurture, encourage and listen to every voice in our community, including pupils, parents and carers, friends and staff. Maximising the potential of every pupil will be placed at the heart of all decision making. We hold regular PEG (Parent Engagement Group) meetings which are open to all parents and carers to discuss upcoming events and to gain feedback from parents about all aspects of school life.
All our pupils will be valued for their individual contributions and their talents celebrated. We will support all pupils to leave as confident and independent individuals, armed with the necessary skills to ensure that they can advocate effectively for themselves. We will support pupils to pursue their ambitions, attain full social inclusion and achieve a high quality of life.

INVESTORS IN PUPILS

Inmans Primary School is an ‘Investors In Pupils School’.

We encourage all of our pupils to express their opinions and have their say in making decisions and make positive contributions which affect the school. Investors In Pupils is a whole-school approach to enable effective pupil participation and pupil voice across the school and community. We believe that taking part in the programme will help the children achieve high standards in their education and will equip them with important life skills.

The award is focussed in 5 main areas:
Learning
Induction
Behaviour
Attendance
School & Classroom Management

What Investors In Pupils looks like at Inmans:

Individual Targets: Every child has their own SMART target.
Vision Statements: Each class has its own statement that all pupils contribute and commit to.
Individual & Group Rewards: Pupils have the opportunity to earn Inmans’Coins as a recognition of their hard work and excellent behaviour. These coins can be accumulated and redeemed at our prize shop for various items. The shop is managed by Year 6 ambassadors, they deal with the ‘transactions’ and ensure stock levels are sufficient.
Whole class rewards: Children are given class-wide rewards. Each class wide reward has a value of two minutes. These minutes are accrued collectively, allowing the class to decide together which reward they wish to redeem.
Induction: A buddy system is used to help children familiarise themselves with the school. Ambassadors welcome children to their new class.
Monitors: Each class has its own monitors, allowing every pupil the opportunity to take on the responsibility of caring for our learning environment.
School Council: Y6 pupils meet to discuss different topics
Subject Ambassadors: Each subject has ambassadors who help with supporting the running of the subject.
Governance: This is mentioned regularly in assemblies. Governors also plan and deliver assemblies to the children.
Pupils understand they are unique: During Jigsaw lessons, we have a unit that children explore each year on celebrating differences. We also take part in various days such as: Odd Sock Day, Red Nose Day, Children In Need, Sports Week, Mental Health Week and Neurodiversity Week.
Financial Knowledge: Pupils volunteer in the Helping Hands Community Shop. Children are also exposed to banking sessions.

How we are continuing to develop the award at Inmans:
Pupils can earn ‘Inmans Cents’ for good work & behaviour, once pupils have 100 cents they will be awarded with an ‘Inmans Dollar’. Y6 ambassadors will run the prize shop, keep stock checks and handle ‘Inmans Dollars’.
