Key Learning in Subjects
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in Reception and National Curriculum in Years 1 to 6.
School takes pride in providing our children with a varied and exciting curriculum that covers all subjects in depth. We teach through a thematic approach,where every class has a topic that is studied in depth throughout each half term. During each topic we encourage children to apply a variety of skills in different ways.
Assessment of Progress
We look at children's starting points and set an aspirational target of what we would like them to achieve by the end of the year.
In Years 1 and Year 2 children's starting points are what they achieved at the end of Reception.
In Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6) children's starting points are based on achievements at the end of Year 2.
Parents are kept informed about progress informally during Family Friday visits to the classroom and more formally in Pupil Progress Reports which are sent out at different points of the year, usually at Parent's Evening meetings.
By the end of each year children are expected to be secure with the objectives for their year group, however we do appreciate that this may not be the case for some children. If children are not meeting these national expecations you will have been informed about it and will know how we are supporting your child and helping them to catch up. This may be from additional support within class or through out of class Intervention.
Similarly, where children are exceeding the expectations for their year group, we will be ensuring that they are challenged in their learning and they may also may be taking part in Intervention Programmes to extend their learning further.
