Your Child’s Learning

Each class teacher is responsible for providing a well balanced broadly based curriculum. As there is usually more than one class in each year group class teachers plan together to ensure that all children within that year group receive the same opportunities.

All children are taught English, Maths and Science and the foundation subjects of History, Geography, I.T. Technology, Art, Physical Education, Music, Religious Education and Health Education. In our school children are also taught French.

We think about children’s intellectual, spiritual, social and emotional differences.  Work is thoughtfully matched to their varying levels of ability.   We do not just want children to learn things now but encourage them to want to learn throughout their lives.  

Children’s achievements are celebrated and everyone enjoys success and praise, regularly, during their time in school.  We encourage children to become independent and confident in both their work and the way they relate to each other and the world.  Children make progress at their own rates and in different ways.  We value them as individuals and provide learning opportunities that build on their strengths and overcome their weaknesses.

Over the last few years we have worked hard to improve the school environment, both within the school building and outside in the extensive grounds the school is situated in.  We feel it is very important that children have an attractive and stimulating environment to work in and that this encourages learning.

Homework

We want each child in our school to achieve their potential and recognise that the partnership with home is essential to this. Reading with your child on a regular basis has been shown to have a dramatic impact on their progress and talking about, or sharing a book is important. Children are set homework each week, to help build on work done in the classroom and to give them an opportunity to share this at home. This will usually be spelling work and maths work.
