Staff work together to ensure that children in each year group follow an appropriate curriculum and that this builds on what has been experienced in the previous class. As far as possible we try to start from the children's experience and extend it. This may involve educational outings and school journeys.
Our teachers strive to develop the children's enthusiasm and interest as a basis for learning. Praise and encouragement can do wonders for a child's self-confidence, which has a major impact on progress and development.
Children's work is displayed attractively throughout the school. This not only gives due recognition of the efforts and abilities of all children, but also acts as a stimulus to others, motivating them to greater levels of achievement.
We continually try to improve the standard of education by reviewing areas of the curriculum, methods of teaching, assessment procedures and programmes of work. Future planning is determined by our School Improvement Plan which encompasses all aspects of our teaching.
The aims of our curriculum are:
Mathletics is an online resource that we use in school and for homework and Times Tables Rockstars is introduced from Y1 to give children the opportunity to practise their times tables online.
