Statutory Information

Academy Status

From 1st April, the school ceased to be maintained by Wiltshire Council and became an Academy as part of the newly-formed Academy Trust of Melksham (ATOM). Our family of schools includes Shaw, Seend, St Mary's Broughton Gifford, St George's Semington, The Manor, Bowerhill and Melksham Oak. The company is limited by guarantee and registered in England and Wales as company no. 08153550. The ATOM is currently advertising for a new CEO; however, the Interim CEO Board can be contacted on ceo@atom.wilts.sch.uk.

Pupil Premium

In the 2015-16 Academic year, we had 25 children receiving this grant, including 9 service children. We used our grant (£23,820) to fund free school meals and milk for those children who are eligible, ensuring a dedicated early-morning progress meeting between teachers and teaching assistants, as well as providing extra learning support in both Maths and English. This is carried out by two part-time teaching assistants who run special programmes for Spelling, Phonics, Reading and Maths. This support has proved very effective at raising achievement in previous years and will continue for the 2016-17 academic year, during which we are due to receive £25,660.


Sports Grant

In previous years, the PE and Sports Premium has enabled us to employ a specialist PE teacher, Mrs Draper, to work with children, Teachers and Teaching Assistants in Year 1 to Year 6. This has enabled both staff and children to develop their skills in a variety of sports activities. We have also used the money to purchase many new resources and equipment for teachers and children to use in PE sessions and at lunchtimes, as well as provide a free after school sports club. We anticipate receiving £17,750 in the 2017-18 academic year and hope to continue this programme of building a rich and varied PE curriculum as well as looking for further ways of improving PE and Sport provision at Shaw. For example, we plan to use our additional funding to run a Sports Leader programme for the older children, who will then guide and train our younger pupils. We have also been able to purchase an online and interactive Dance & PE resource for all of our classes to use.

For more information on the impact of the PE grant, please see the Sport page within the 'Our Learning' menu.


The school follows the Wiltshire County Council policy for admissions with regard to pupils with SEN and disabilities, a copy of which can be found here.

Our Accessibility Plan can be found with our other Policies, in the 'For Parents' menu.
