Curriculum

Teachers plan their work together to ensure that the children receive a progressive and balanced curriculum of the highest quality. Work is based on the Curriculum 2014 guidelines. Each class has created an overview for the year, covering all subjects:

Homework

We ask parents to help children, at all ages and stages, with reading at home. When the children enter the Infant classes they begin the more formal aspects of reading. At this stage we see all our parents to discuss the process.

From mid-way through key stage 1 tables and spellings are taught and tested regularly. Again, home support is a great help to children learning these.

The introduction of more formal homework throughout the ages is detailed in our homework policy and discussed with our staff. At the upper junior stage pupils are set homework tasks to complete on a regular basis.

Information sessions are held for parents to support their pupils learning e.g literacy, mathematics, year six homework and secondary transfer procedures.

We aim for the children to become computer literate, experiencing ICT across the curriculum as part of a whole-school approach. Pupils become competent in the use of the ICT, the Internet and Email as part of their daily work, using wireless laptops wihin their own classrooms. Our integrated and innovative approach has been acknowledged with a National ICT Award. Our extensive range of ICT equipment includes digital cameras, scanners, sensors, digital movie creators and microscope. All classes have digital projectors interactive and magnetic whiteboards

Children’s questions regarding sex education are answered tactfully and sensitively. A specific programme is offered for older junior children including videos and discussion. Parents are informed by letter before any specific lessons are introduced, given the opportunity to preview material and withdraw their child if they so wish.

In Religious Education we help the children to acquire an appreciation of the significance of the life of Jesus Christ and develop an awareness of the beliefs and practices of other religious groups.

All age groups experience a full range of physical activities. Road Safety courses are run by specialists at different ages and stages within the school day, ranging from Pedestrian skills to Cycling Proficiency:

Assessment & Testing

All children are assessed regularly as an on-going part of their education, with the end of key stage pupils completing the statutory national tests for their age groups.

Secondary Transfer

A copy of each child’s annual report, together with an unaided piece of the child’s writing, is sent to the appropriate secondary school for children who are transferring at the end of the school year. Representatives from the local secondary schools visit their future pupils here and invite them for a ‘taster’ day at their new schools during the Summer Term preceding transfer.
