Our Curriculum

We provide a broad, balanced, relevant education incorporating the British National Curriculum. Within this framework, we provide an education, which offers a coherent and continuous range of knowledge and skills, which allows our children to participate, and to develop an inquiring mind and a confident personality.
Our teachers work hard to ensure the curriculum is as stimulating and exciting as possible, so that our children enjoy learning and are inspired to become lifelong learners.

Assessment and Reporting to Parents
Regular assessments are made of each child’s progress and these are used by teachers to plan the next steps in learning. As from Class 4 formal termly assessments are also conducted in English, maths and science, and the next steps in learning are shared with parents at termly parent/teacher conferences. In addition, parents receive a written Termly School Report at the end of each term which summarizes their child’s overall progress and attainment.

Homework:

Our children benefit from success of home and school involvement, and it is essential that the relationship between the two remain harmonious and close. We therefore encourage parents to take an active interest in their children’s work and supervise and monitor their homework daily.
