Each child is supported in his or her development towards being a well adjusted and caring young person whilst, at the same time, working towards maximum academic achievement. We offer a wide programme of skill based learning which is in line with the new curriculum. Mantle of the Expert, which is a drama based approach, is used to support one topic based unit of work a term.
The school has 22 classrooms with 3 parallel (4 in one year group) classes in each year group and the children are normally taught in mixed ability classes. All children are treated as individuals and taught according to their needs. Sometimes they will work independently and sometimes as part of a friendship or ability group. In Years 4, 5 & 6 children will be put into either an accelerated or parallel ability group for maths. We feel this allows each group to be taught according to their needs.
