Teaching and Learning

We believe, and our pupils agree with us, that children learn best when they:

  • Are safe and happy
  • Are challenged and stimulated
  • Feel learning is fun and are interested and motivated
  • Are treated equally
  • Have work matched to their ability and understand the task
  • Receive a broad, balanced, differentiated and relevant curriculum
  • Are in a peaceful calm working environment
  • Are in a classroom that is well resourced and where resources are accessible
  • Can achieve success and gain approval
  • Are aware of the boundaries of acceptable behaviour and rewards and sanctions are used in an appropriate and consistent manner.

We value:

  • Independence
  • Honesty
  • Perseverance
  • Respect for persons and for property
  • Good behaviour
  • A sense of humour
  • Empathy
  • Praise and encouragement
  • A safe environment
  • Tidiness
  • Working together towards a common goal
