The curriculum: This comprises an extensive range of activities designed to promote not only learning, but also personal growth and development. The curriculum is delivered, in the main, by class teachers, all of whom are experts in the relevant ages. This is then enhanced by specialist tuition in Sport, Music, Latin, Computing, Art and Modern Foreign Languages. Teaching throughout the school is tailored to meet the needs of the individual child and children are encouraged to reflect and evaluate their own learning and with support identify their next steps.
Extra curricular activities: In addition to the traditional school clubs such as sport, music, gardening, cookery, dance and art, there is also the ‘hidden curriculum’. This is what the children learn from the way they are treated and how they are expected to behave. They learn to grow into positive, responsible adults who can work and co-operate with others, whilst at the same time developing their knowledge and skills in order to achieve their true potential.
Pastoral care: Every effort is made to ensure that the children never feel lost or bewildered and that they quickly find their feet and are given a sense of belonging. Our commitment to providing a safe and nurturing environment for our pupils ensures that they are enabled to be the best that they can be. Communication between staff, children and parents is both flexible and open, leading to the best possible outcomes for growth and development.
