Art and Craft

An apron or protective overall is essential to prevent accidental damage to clothing during painting or craft work. An old adult size shirt is a suitable alternative.

Physical Education

Some form of physical education takes place on most school days. In order to participate and get the maximum benefit from these activities it is essential that every child is equipped with the appropriate equipment.

This consists of the following items only :

Plimsolls - (Must have a flexbile sole. Training shoes are not suitable.)
A pair of shorts - (Bermudas and knee length shorts are not suitable.)
A plain T-Shirt in house colours - (Must be slim fitting - baggy types that can get caught in apparatus are not suitable.)

Please do not send your shild to school with any other items of PE/Games kit. The above items should be stored in a drawstring bag, clearly marked with the child's name, kept solely for this purpose. All children must participate in physical education unless medically excused. Please inform the class teacher by letter if your child is unable to take part.


Teaching and Learning

Our basic intention is to help children realise their full potential. We believe that all activity must have a sense of pupose and all learning have interest as its basis. Every child will be expected to produce a maximum of effort, although due to the wide differences that exist between individual abilities, it should not be expected that all children will cover the same amount of work or reach the same standard. Our aim is that every child should reach the highest standard possible within his/her potential.

Organisation of Classes

At the present time, the children are grouped into classes according to age. There are three or four classes to each year group according to the number of children within that year group. All classes are unstreamed and composed of children of a wide range of ability, although ability sets are increasingly used for Mathematics, English and Science as a child progresses through the school.

Special Educational Needs

Children experiencing learning difficulties are given individual learning programmes to meet their special education needs. The oversight of all special needs matters is the responsibility the school's Special Needs Co-Ordinator (Mrs F Shepherd) who monitors the progress of such children regularly. Some pupils receive additional support and tuition from teachers of the Integrated Support Service.

The National Curriculum

The National Curriculum sets out what children should learn between the ages of 5 and 16 in both primary and secondary schools. Pupils in primary schools study nine subjects as well as Religious Education. They are :

  • English
  • Technology / ICT
  • Music
  • Mathematics
  • History
  • Art and Design
  • Science
  • Geography
  • Physical Education

In this school we teach from the Key Stage 2 programme of study that is designed for children from 7 to 11 years of age. during the final year at this school, the children take part in national tests called SATs to measure their performance against national criteria. Results of the SAT tests are reported to parents at the end of Year 6.
