If absence is caused by sickness, please provide a medical certificate to cover any period in excess of three days. For periods longer than this, please refer to the contractual terms. Accident Procedures In most cases, the school nurse will be the first point of reference. The member of staff on duty is the initial judge of the severity’ of the accident. Initial first aid is applied at school by the nurse or other trained first aiders. If there is any doubt and ALWAYS in the case of AXY suspected head injury, parents should be contacted. A note from the nurse must be completed in all cases when a child is required to have medical treatment and if the parents need to be contacted by the school nurse. The note is given to the child or class teacher to send home and the medical incident is added to RIVO by the school nurse. In the event of a child requiring hospital treatment, the parents or other designated adults are contacted by the nurse / office staff and asked to collect the child from school. If the parents / named contact person are unable to be contacted, then the school nurse and / or a member of staff will accompany the child to the designated hospital or clinic. Obviously, in cases of extreme urgency, the child is taken directly to the designated hospital. The parents are then contacted and requested to go directly to the hospital. First Aid boxes are available around the school: kitchen, dining hall, both pools, offices, nurse's room, library, science labs, gym and ELC. Staff should familiarise themselves with the personal details of their classes, particularly noting any reported allergy or potential problem. A list of the medical information about each class is provided by the nurse. Any new information should be passed onto the school nurse, who will update the medical register which is stored on the SIMS database. Alcohol No alcohol should be consumed at school other than at functions organised at school, outside school hours, where permission for alcohol consumption has been approved by the Principal. Assemblies Assemblies are an opportunity for Early Years, Key Stages or the whole school to come together to celebrate learning and special events. There is an expectation that all pupils and BRITISH VIETNAMESE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL Primary Staff Handbook 2015-2016 adults should be quiet and respectful to those leading the assembly. In return, the assembly should be well organised, stimulating and age appropriate. The senior member of staff leading the assembly should be there to receive the pupils and help guide them to their appropriate places. The weekly Primary assembly is held on Friday morning at 08:40 An assembly rota is agreed at the start of the year for class assemblies. Specialist teachers may also be expected to lead assemblies. All Primary staff should attend the Friday assembly. Staff are expected to be sat with their class to encourage positive behaviour during assemblies. When all staff are in the assembly, everyone is responsible for the children's behaviour. Time should be made available in class to remind children about school expectations of behaviour. All assemblies usually begin and end with music organised by the teacher running the assembly or the Music department. Buses for Teachers Bus times will be provided by the Facility Manager. Staff in designated school accommodation are entitled to use the complimentary school bus.

Children should be collected by their parents or a responsible adult from the rooms where they have been working. This allows the staff the opportunity to tidy up after the club. No children should leave the school unless accompanied by a recognised guardian who has the child's swipe card, unless the school office has been informed in writing in advance. No children should be left unattended in the playground. Any children who have not been collected by 16.20 should be taken to the office by the club teacher. - 9 - BRITISH VIETNAMESE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL Primary Staff Handbook 2015-2016 Children who attend PE clubs / specialist groups must be supervised when they get changed by the teacher of the club. Some younger pupils may get changed in their classrooms or nearest toilets. Homework Children should receive homework each evening except Friday in accordance with the school's Home Learning Policy. The homework should be listed either in the children's diary or the year group blog. It should have clear instructions for parents as to what the WALT or MTBH of the activity should be and, when appropriate, be differentiated to suit the needs of the children. Children and parents should be aware of the purpose for a set homework and given any guidance that could be helpful. They should know when homework needs to be completed or, if it is an extended piece of work, when each stage is to be completed. Children should receive feedback on their homework, either verbally, with a stamp or with a written comment. Parents should be encouraged to offer feedback about homework via the children's diary. (See Policy and Procedures section). Houses and House Points There is a House system in school. Every child is assigned to a 'House 'on entry to the school: Hanoi (red), Saigon (blue), Hue (yellow) or Dalat (green). Children can earn House Points for work, attitude and achievements at the teacher's discretion. Class totals will be collected weekly by Year 6 House Captains so they can be collated and reported at assembly. Scores need to be made easily available. The total is always a great source of speculation and excitement at the assembly. The 'House Shield' will be presented to the house with most points. Medical Register A register of children with allergies and medical conditions/requirements is on SIMS and is regularly updated by the school nurse. Office Staff in the Primary office have a range of responsibilities which include: - Admissions Attendance All support staff Orders - 10- BRITISH VIETNAMESE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL Correspondence Children's official records - 11 - Primary Staff Handbook 2015-2016 BRITISH VIETNAMESE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL Primary Staff Handbook 2015-2016 2. To enable teachers to become aware of the parents' perspective of the school and other relevant information that may have a direct influence upon a pupil's performance 3. To establish a regular, personal communication system to enable parents and teachers to support the child. There are two sets of scheduled parent / teacher conferences each year. Parents or teachers may request additional conferences should the need arise. Parents are informed of dates in good time. Conferences may involve persons other than the class teacher if the situation warrants. Both parents should be invited. Each scheduled conference should last between 10 and 15 minutes. In addition, there is an on-entry interview in EYFS at the beginning of the school year. This takes about 30 minutes and is arranged between EYFS staff and families. Preparing a set of discussion topics beforehand is a good strategy, with relevant points raised during the conference added. Details of the curriculum may be discussed during conferences, but actual written copies of lesson plans and curriculum notes should NOT be given to parents. In general, discussion of school matters should take place only at school and during normal teacher working hours when parents should be free to arrange an appointment regarding their child's progress. Parents requesting information on school policy, regulations, administration etc, should be referred to the Headteacher. The scheduled conferences should hold no surprises for the parents. Any problems that have arisen should have been discussed prior to these conferences. Reports There will be two written reports each year, one at the end of the first term and the other towards the end of term 3. As for the Parent/Teacher Conferences, written reports should hold no surprises for the parents. The teacher should be able to explain the various comments made. Staff should be consistent in comments made at conferences and in reports and be aware of the details of previous teacher comments that are on file. PE and Swimming Teachers and TAs need to supervise children as they change for PE and swimming. Supervision of the children is not just the responsibility of the PE department. It is the responsibility of the class teacher to ensure pupils get changed ready for PE under their supervision. This responsibility can be delegated to the TA only if they are confident that the TA can ensure the health and safety of the children. - 1 2 - BRITISH VIETNAMESE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL Primary Staff Handbook 2015-2016 Generally, if a child is fit to attend school then they are fit to swim. A doctor's note must be provided if the child is unable to participate in their swimming / splash pool session. Non swimmers accompany their class to the swimming pool to observe the lesson. Photocopying Teachers will need to submit requests for photocopying to the resource staff giving, when possible, adequate time for the tasks to be completed. Planning Good planning reflects the relationship between what is taught and how best to teach it. All Primary teachers are required to plan in English for the continuity and progression of the curriculum in accordance with the agreed planning formats. Clear guidance is provided to outline how planning is recorded, shared and kept. Partner teachers must plan together or share their planning for both their classes. All teachers' planning should be available (through agreed procedures) at the request of the Key Stage Coordinator. The plans are put in planning folders on the T drive. Hard copies of the short term planning should be displayed on the teacher's board in their classroom. These should be completed before the beginning of the week they are due to be taught. We have three types of plans: • • • Long Term Medium Term Short Term Long Term Plans and Schemes of Work These give an overview of the units taught over the whole academic year and are divided to at least three terms. Schemes of work give detail to long term plans and enable each teacher to know and understand the pre-requisite skills, knowledge and understanding needed to deliver the curriculum at each stage. The schemes outline the key objectives / learning goals and provide a structure for continuity and progression. Literacy - The Primary Strategy document contains long term planning for English Literacy. The MOET textbooks and Primary Strategy should be referred to for Vietnamese Literacy. Maths - The Vietnamese Moet book contains long term planning for this area and is supplemented by the Primary Strategy document. Science - A long term plan based on the English National Curriculum QCA Units of Study is provided on the T drive. Lien Ket - The EPC provides units of work which give an overview of what may be learned and these are accessible on the IPC website: - 13 - BRITISH VIETNAMESE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL Primary Staff Handbook 2015-2016 wxmvSnter11ation2lvrvrmrvcurriciilum.com Medium Term Plans These detail the content for the curricular areas and how they will be covered over the course of a term. Primary class teachers are required to complete the termly Learning Overview for English and Vietnamese Literacy, Maths, Science and Lien Ket. This details the expected weekly content for these areas. Partner teachers must complete the Literacy and Lien Ket sections together. Where there is more than one English and one Vietnamese teacher per year group, these documents can be completed co-operatively. Medium term plans should be saved on the Z drive for reference and are also posted on the school website in both English and Vietnamese. Early Years teachers develop their plans according to the needs of the children. They plan on a daily basis using a child centred approach. Early Years follow the guidance from the English Early Years curriculum. Short Term Plans These plans enable the teacher to detail exactly what they will be teaching and how they are going to teach it. These are the teachers' individual plans for each class and should include the differentiated activities for individual or groups of children and classroom management information, together with evaluation and continuation of previous work. Copies of short term planning and the timetable should be readily available on the teacher's board in the classroom for reference. - 14- BRITISH VIETNAMESE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL Primary Staff Handbook 2015-2016 Playtimes and Lunchtimes The duty rota is displayed in the staffroom and dining hall.
