Our Federation

Since 2012 Lightwater Village School has been federated with Hammond School. This means that the schools retain their individual identities, yet share a leadership team and one governing body. Our federation has given us many benefits including the ability to develop a through curriculum from Year R to Year 6, consistent and progressive in approach so that children develop core skills and knowledge year on year. Staff work together to develop this common approach. We have also developed a consistent assessment system which enables the abilities and achievements of children to be tracked and monitored closely from Year R to Year 6, supporting our understanding and helping us target where more support, intervention, stretch or challenge is needed. This strong understanding supports our provision for all children. At Year 3 we continue to welcome children and families from all our local villages and work hard to ensure they quickly become part of our strong school community.
