Education

Our children are taught in line with the expectations that are set out in the National and Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculums.  English, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Languages, R.E. and P.E. are generally taught as discrete subjects and other subjects are taught through stimulating topics.

Our aspiration for all our children to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens underpins our planning of the curriculum.  We work hard to ensure that the children enjoy the curriculum offered and our aim is to create friendly, exciting and inspiring places to learn, where children feel safe and nurtured.  We want our children to become brave learners, who are willing to try new things and learn from their mistakes, so that they are well prepared for the next stage in their education.

We are committed to the inclusion of all children.  All children, including those with specific learning difficulties, those with physical disabilities, the most able and children with English as an additional language are nurtured through a range of strategies, interventions and support.

We continually try to improve the standard of education by reviewing areas of the curriculum, methods of teaching, assessment procedures and programmes of work.

Our teachers strive to develop the children's enthusiasm 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 our schools.  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.
