Our team of experienced staff work closely together to create a happy and nurturing environment where children settle quickly, are valued as individuals, but are also encouraged to develop the skills to become confident and successful members of the school community.
We work within the structure of the Early Learning Goals and National Curriculum, providing experiences that reflect a whole range of learning styles and abilities.
In the core subjects of Maths and English children are grouped according to their needs and undertake national testing where appropriate. Foundation subjects are taught using a thematic approach where, for example History and Geography meet Art, Design, Technology and ICT. The approach makes learning more interesting and enjoyable through a wide range of different experiences.
Teaching and Learning is backed up with regular monitoring and assessment, to ensure children move forward and reach their full potential. As a SEN school, pupils are not normally working at the End of KS2 expectations, although some children will access statutory tests where appropriate.
We also offer a range of valuable learning experiences outside the classroom with regular trips to places of interest in the local area and further afield.
