How we teach and learn

Our staff are committed to providing high quality learning experiences for all of our children. Expectations of all staff are high with regard to children’s behaviour, ability and attitude to their learning.

We understand the necessity of empowering children and fostering high self esteem so that our children can flourish. We provide a safe environment where children can take risks and challenge themselves.

There is a shared understanding among staff that high quality first wave teaching is a must and so all lessons are differentiated to meet the needs of children .  Lessons are planned with the aim of enabling children to make rapid progress and reach their full potential .

We know that children have differing abilities and learn in different ways so within lessons the children are grouped in a variety of ways and teachers teach using a variety of styles in order to motivate and inspire the children.

The classroom is viewed as a learning environment and the expectation is that children’s work is displayed on the walls to celebrate their success, information posters, key vocabulary and models of high quality writing are also on display to motivate the children.  The school also uses other means to celebrate and promote learning such as staff and child book picks dotted around the school, Golden Learner of the Week displays for each year group and our Writing Gallery. We also have a weekly celebration assembly that highlights and celebrates successful learning.
