We are committed to ensuring that all pupils receive the best possible education. A strong emphasis is placed upon the acquisition of the core skills - reading, writing and number, as well as learning to listen and speak with confidence.
Teachers recognise that within any class there exists between pupils a wide variation in ability across the range of individual tasks. Teachers match their lessons to the ability of each pupil in their class – they set aside a great deal of planning time to ensure this.
In the Pre-School setting and in the Reception class, the curriculum is organised around a series of themes and the foundation curriculum is closely followed.
For pupils in Key Stages 1 & 2 the curriculum is planned according to schemes of work devised from the subjects of the National Curriculum, the syllabus for Religious Education and Personal and Social Education. Teachers will make links between subjects when they occur naturally and provide real educational value.
To assist in teaching and learning our school offers many additional advantages:
- large classrooms, some over 100 square metres
- a large computer suite for whole class inclusion and Interactive Whiteboards and additional computers in most classrooms.
- a full-size purpose-built stage (see below)
- an outdoor heated swimming pool with changing rooms
- a full-size gymnasium with adjoining changing rooms
- a significant acreage of hard and grassed areas for outdoor play surrounding the school
- pre-school playgroup managed by the school
Together with Cambridge Local Education Authority, the Governors are planning a new purpose-built classrooms. This will include most of the above features and be a flagship school for the county.
The School’s Council
The School’s Council are members of Y6 who are elected through a whole school vote. They meet with the Headteacher regularly to represent children’s ideas, suggestions and worries. Their input into school life is significant.
Cambridge Regional College is housed within the school and is involved in planning and organising adult classes, working with young people and developing community projects. Courses are run both during and after school hours. A brochure containing information regarding classes is issued each August. Classes are varied and a proportion offers a certificate of competence on completion. All Information Technology courses follow the RSA syllabus with examinations at the end.
