Organisation of the Curriculum

During the morning children are generally taught Literacy and Numeracy.

In the afternoon the children usually have two lessons; however our timetables change constantly and are flexible enough to allow the teachers to explore subjects in more depth and to develop links between subjects. ICT is taught throughout all subjects and we have a mobile Laptop ICT suite with 15 computers. This means that each class has an identified time each week for learning specific ICT skills. Whilst using the National Curriculum and other statutory documentation we have adapted schemes of work for each subject, which detail exactly what is taught to each year group on a progressive basis.

We strive to teach all children according to their individual needs and ability and we use a thorough assessment process to help us achieve this goal. The children are regularly assessed by the teachers and this information is used to monitor progress, provide additional help if needed, provide more challenge if a child is identified as gifted and talented and to identify the next learning step.
