“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Behaviour

Behaviour & Anti Bullying Procedures

Within its Christian foundation the school has a strong commitment to promoting good behaviour through positive strategies, high expectations and a programme of Values for Life Education.

  • We have high expectations of behaviour around the academy.
  • We are kind, fair and consistent in our expectations of and responses to children.
  • We develop the children’s moral and spiritual education in assemblies based on values themes.

Teaching is well planned and interesting, providing children with challenging but achievable tasks.

School rules have been developed with the children. They are based on the principles of consideration and respect for self and others. The aim is for pupils to achieve self-discipline and develop their own sense of responsibility. We use a ‘Good to Be Green’ behaviour scheme and pupils are regularly rewarded in a variety of ways for demonstrating outstanding behaviour.

In the very few instances when pupils make choices that are not in line with our expectations, the consequences of their actions are clearly outlined to them. We take swift action to deal with any incidents of bullying and the children and parents or carers are encouraged to discuss any problems at an early stage. Here is a link to our Anti-Bullying Policy

In extreme cases of behavioural concern, parents or carers will be contacted and the matter will be dealt with by the Deputy Head and Executive Head Teachers in partnership with them. The Executive Head Teachers, in consultation with the Governing Body, can exclude children from school.
