Teaching and learning of the national curriculum is enquiry based, with a focus on problem solving and aims to build up pupils’ abilities as learners. Children do their work both individually and in groups. Class sizes are relatively small for greater personal attention to every pupil’s learning needs. All children are taught in mixed ability classes, with children of the same age.
In the curriculum, sport, music, drama and educational trips among other activities, form an important part that aims to help children learn essential skills, discover interests and develop the confidence to go after new challenges.
