The school has always maintained a fine tradition of high academic standards whilst offering a rich variety of musical, artistic, creative, practical and sporting activities to stimulate and develop individual talents.
The needs of the individual child are paramount and we aim to develop potentials fully, whilst recognising the need to equip each child with basic skills, areas of knowledge and the positive attitudes needed for future learning, secondary education and adult life.
A broadly based curriculum incorporating the National Curriculum is offered to all pupils at our School. There is particular emphasis on the three core areas of English (speaking and listening, reading, writing, spelling and handwriting), Mathematics (number, algebra, measure, shape/space and data handling), and Science (investigations, materials, physical and living processes). The foundation subjects are Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art and R.E. Cross curricular themes include Health Education, Environmental Education, Equal Opportunities and Citizenship, Drama, French and Multisports. Information Technology is taught across the curriculum from the Reception class upwards.
In order to achieve our aims we are grateful for the support parents can give in helping their children to complete homework successfully. These are some ways parents can help:
Ensure that their child has a suitable environment in which to work.
Take an interest in the work and monitor the standard of presentation.
Hear their child read and test comprehension.
Help their child research for information.
Talk to their child about school.
