Teaching during the morning sessions will focus on the development of Literacy and Numeracy skills. Other subjects are taught separately, or where coherent cross-curricular links exist between subjects as part of a thematic approach.

A variety of organisational strategies and teaching techniques will operate within each classroom. On occasions it will be appropriate for whole class teaching and on others mixed ability or friendship groups will operate. We group children by ability and also set programmes to cater for the learning needs of individual children.

We will operate a ‘fitness for purpose’ policy on grouping children as we believe that flexibility of organisation is essential to meet children’s needs and the demands of the English National Curriculum together with the wider school curriculum.

The curriculum is planned in detail by class teachers to ensure that work is matched to meet the learning needs of individuals and that every child is challenged to reach his or her full potential. Whole-school Theme Days will be held over the year. These will include Community Day, Health Day, World Book Day, Science Day, Maths Day, a Mini-Enterprise Week and a Culture & Creative Arts Week. The curriculum will be further enhanced and enriched through the involvement of outside professional speakers, including artists, authors, health partners & representatives from the local community.
