Children at Longleaze are offered a wide range of opportunities in order to fulfill their potential.
A broad and balanced curriculum ensures that all abilities and needs are catered for. Support for children with moderate learning difficulties is available in our Specialist Learning Centre whilst more able children are challenged with appropriately differientiated work. We recognise each child as an individual, having different starting points. Our aim is to progress them from where they are in order to achieve their potential.
A wide range of music teaching is available ranging from beginners recorder lessons to ensembles. Outside music teachers offer brass, woodwind, guitar, violin and keyboard tuition. Involvement in major drama productions such as "Bugsy Malone" is encouraged.
The development of physical skills is also valued and clubs including football, netball cricket and tag rugby flourish. Competitive fixtures are arranged. Back to top
Longleaze is a caring school where our highly motivated staff, both teaching and non-teaching, work as a team to develop your child's full potential.
Starting school is one of the most important events in your child's life, be it as a rising five or after a family move. We are proud that new children settle quickly and happily at Longleaze, enabling them to learn and develop from the experiences we provide - academically, creatively and socially.
The staff at Longleaze believes it is very important that every child feels happy and secure at school, and we do our best to ensure this. We welcome you as partners in your child's education and recognise the contribution you make, both at home and at school. There are regular opportunities to meet your child's teacher to celebrate achievements and to discuss ways in which we can help your child to progress. To see the school in action, you will also be invited to share in special events including sports days, assemblies, plays and concerts.
Many parents help at Longleaze on a regular basis, supporting the class teacher in activities such as hearing reading, playing games, cooking, sewing, repairing books, and making educational resources. Other parents help on an occasional basis - accompanying children on class outings and helping with seasonal displays and events, e.g. making costumes. This list is not exhaustive and we welcome any new offers of help or skills, which you are prepared to share with us.
