Ethos and Aims

At Abingdon House School we deliver a bespoke education for every pupil, developing and expanding their unique talents and helping to bring about a positive change their self esteem.

Our Approach

We are here to listen and advise; we have a highly skilled and professional team for your consultation. Each pupil has an Individual Education Plan with targets reviewed at the end of each term. This individual ‘menu’ may change each term as staff select from the ‘menu’ the most appropriate provision for each pupil, depending on the outcomes of the previous term and the pupil’s needs. Pupils receive a combination of class, group and individual lessons.

Reporting and Assessment

Individual Education Plan

Each pupil has an IEP (Individual Education Plan). This is constructed around the individual needs of the pupil. It can be as much to do with developing strengths, as it is to do with tackling perceived weaknesses.

Each target aims to be SMART (s pecific, m easurable, a chievable, r ealistic, t ime frame). At the end of each term, we review these targets with the parents and make recommendations for the next term’s targets.

Subject reports

These will be sent prior to the parent/teacher meetings in the autumn and summer terms. A comment will be given for each subject as well as a report from the Head.

Parent / teacher/ pupil meetings

These meetings are held at the end of each term and the pupil is present for part or for the whole of the meeting as deemed appropriate.

Rewards and Sanctions

Abingdon operates a whole school policy. Our rules are simple and reflect the ethos of the school.

  • Always be kind and helpful

A Prize Giving is held each term so that pupils are given the opportunity for their effort and achievement to be recognised and celebrated on a regular basis.
