The learning and teaching policy underpins the ethos of the school and the opportunities provided for children in all curriculum areas. A range of teaching approaches are used, including class teaching, group work and individual, using a variety of teaching methods to suit different learning styles. Opportunities are provided for children to engage in a number of different learning tasks, which extend their ability to work alone or collaboratively on group activities.
Please see the following for more information:
Below you will find details of the curriculum taught in each class. If you would like to find out more about the curriculum that we follow, please contact the school; the headteacher (Ishbel Coleman) or any of the class teachers would be happy to talk to you about our curriculum.
We currently use the "Read, Write, Inc," scheme for teaching phonics and reading along with the "Oxford Reading Tree" in Key Stage 1.
Please see below the curriculum for each class.
End of Key Stage Assessment
At the end of year 2 and year 6, the children's attainment is assessed and reported to the Local Authority and the Department for Education.
As part of the assessment process, children in year 2 and 6 take Standard Assessment Tests (SATs). Their attainment is also assessed by their class teacher, based upon the work that they have done in class.
As a result of changes to the curriculum, the assessment process for 2016 has changed, and the children's attainment will be recorded and reported to parents differently.
If you were unable to attend the parents' information evenings held in school for parents of Y2 and Y6, please find the powerpoint presentations attached below.
