Mountford Manor Primary Learning & Education

Overview

At Mountford Manor Primary School, children are supported, guided and inspired through our excellent teaching practises, to achieve academic success through a knowledge-engaged approach to the curriculum, which centres around a key stimulus.

We sequence our learning experiences carefully so that pupils are building upon prior knowledge and skills and build in activities that motivate and engage all learners. The teachers' objectives are made explicit so pupils know clearly what the expected outcomes are. When planning work, teachers will structure challenges appropriately, to scaffold 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 may be heavily teacher directed however we ensure children's learning has an appropriate level of independent and group work throughout the week.

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.

Developing the whole child is at the centre of everything we do and our intention is that the curriculum extends opportunity, raises aspiration and opens children's eyes to the world beyond their immediate environment.

Through our values based approach, the curriculum encourages children to become kind, considerate and accepting individuals who make positive contributions to their community and beyond.
