Challenging today's child to be tomorrow's future

Newsflash: Welcome back our current value is aspiration

Curriculum

Organisation

We believe that pupils flourish and progress when they are able to access the curriculum. Every pupil has this entitlement and should be able to feel successful in their learning experiences. The National Curriculum supports this view and outlines three principles for inclusion:

  • Setting suitable learning challenges
  • Responding to pupils’ different needs
  • Overcoming potential barriers to learning and assessment

We structure learning experiences carefully so that pupils always feel encouraged and motivated. The teachers’ objectives are made explicit so pupils know clearly what the expected outcomes are. When planning work, teachers will structure challenges appropriately, to support individuals who may be experiencing difficulty, as well as being able to extend the depth and breadth of study for individuals or groups who exceed the expected level of attainment.

Teachers use a variety of methods to promote learning and the development of key skills. Some lessons might be very teacher led, others are highly interactive. Alternatively we might ask pupils to work independently or as part of a group on a specific project. Many lessons contain a session at the end so that pupils gain experience of sharing their knowledge and understanding with their peers and teachers. We seek to draw out links between subject areas. The work of each class is based around one theme, project or question at a time.
