Our Federation

Since 2012 Hammond School has been federated with Lightwater Village 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 also have developed a consistent assessment system which enables the abilities and achievements of children to be tracked and monitored closely from Reception 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.
