The school follows the Primary National Curriculum which consists of nine subjects plus Religious Education. A wide variety of teaching methods are used ranging from whole class teaching to individual teaching. Small group work is widely used, when children are grouped according to their ability. Subjects are integrated in cross curricular themes to make learning interesting. Educational visits are also used to inspire children’s work and reinforce their learning.
At the beginning of each term parents/carers are supplied with an overview of the topics to be covered. Parents/carers are given regular updates on pupils’ learning via the fortnightly newsletter.
Parent and staff meetings are held every year and upon request, with a written report in the summer term.

Performance and Achievement Data
The link to the school’s Key Stage 2 performance data can be found on the Department of Education website at:
Our results, in some years, have been supressed as the number of children taking tests fell below the DFE’s threshold for reporting. The suppression of results is done to avoid identification of individual children. The school regularly monitors the progress of all children within the school through continual assessment and year end tests. These processes enable staff to identify any additional support which may be required for the children to achieve their full potential.
