What we do...

With the introduction of the New National Primary Curriculum in 2014, it was the ideal opportunity for us to have a really good look at what we were teaching in all areas of teaching and learning. As we are always looking for ways to move forwards with our practices, we have worked very hard on making the curriculum engaging and as a result, have decided to follow a project based learning approach where the children change their topics frequently. This allows for breadth and depth of learning as the children are able to study a vast variety of areas of interest to them. We place a high level of importance on school visits and try to have a visit each term as we believe they bring our topics to life. You will see from the information within the School Life tab, that throughout the year, these are many and varied. 

 

To ensure progress is measurable, each subject coordinator has developed a long term plan and a skills based planning and assessment document for their subject which clearly outlines the progression that the children will follow. This enables the teachers to plan work that is suited to the individual needs of the children and to assess each child's level of attainment in every subject.
