The curriculum is delivered in different ways, from individual work and group work to class lessons, depending on the needs of the child and the skills to be developed.
Each child is encouraged to reach their full potential. The groundwork that we provide within the ‘core’ and foundation subjects (English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, RE, History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology, PE, PHSE) will be something upon which all children will be capable of building in the future.
We complement the National Curriculum with many extra-curricula activities delivered through clubs and residential trips (add appropriate hyperlink).
We hope that parents will feel welcome in school and that together, as a partnership, we can provide a very high standard of education.
The most useful help parents can give children at home is through positive encouragement, interest and support. If teachers and parents are working together with the interests of the child at heart, then success is more likely.
Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1
Younger children should learn to value reading as an enjoyable experience. There is no better way to do this than to have a story which they enjoy read to them and discussed by parents. As children move on to full reading books, regular and enjoyable reading becomes vital. Reading and enjoying not merely school books but supplementary reading material will help to ensure progress.
Key Stage 2
From September 2006 we are introducing a maths homework programme which will ensure continuity and progress across the Key Stage. It meets the needs of different abilities and complements the work learnt in class. We will be monitoring its impact throughout the year.
