We aim to establish a happy, caring environment where children learn and are challenged to achieve their very best. We highly value the acquisition of learning skills, we aim to work with our children to create confident and independent learners, we value the whole child and place especially high importance on emotional intelligence and inclusion for all.
Mornings are dedicated to reading, maths, phonics and grammar. During the afternoons our work is based on cross curricular themes. This work includes close attention to the core subjects of Science, ICT and RE as well as the following foundation subjects: Design and Technology, Music, Art and Design, PE, PSHCE, History and Geography.
Foundation Stage Profiles for Reception children are ongoing from September. Early Years children undertake a 'Baseline Assessment' and a 'Follow Up 'Assessment to measure progress in the Early Years.The school also employs BASE as a further measure of progress in the early years.
Year 1 children take a 'Phonics assessment'. This assessment is retaken in Year 2 if necessary.
KS1 formal standardised assessment takes place in May when Year 2 children are involved in teacher based assessments. In Year 6 children will also sit formal standardised assessment tests (SATS) in May.
