Organising Children's Learning 

ourlearning2-281.jpg


Aims and Methods


Our aim is to inspire and educate each child so that they can work within their potential, academically and socially; acquiring skills for independence that will enable them to become valued members of society.
 
We operate as a team using flexible, innovative teaching methods and promote learning that is both challenging and fun.

To effect this we operate a cross-curricular approach to learning with individual work programmes, tailored to each child's needs; in Key Stage 2 we call this a planner.

With such a system all children, whether they be exceptionally able or with specific difficulties, may achieve their full potential. 

Our full Learning, Teaching and Assessment policy can be viewed in the file below. 


Learning Teaching and Assessment Policy 2018

 

Curriculum Policy


The School's Curriculum Policy is in line with Wokingham Borough Council's Curriculum Statement and conforms to the requirements of the 1988 Education Reform Act.  Schemes of work are planned in conjunction with the Statutory Framework for Early Years Foundation Stage 2012 and National Curriculum 2014. 

The National Curriculum consists of:

3 core subjects

  • English - including SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) 
  • Maths
  • Science

 

9 Foundation subjects

  • Art & Design
  • Computing
  • Design & Technology
  • Foreign Language (French)
  • Geography
  • History
  • Music
  • PE
  • Religious Education (This is a legal requirement and the Local Authority is responsible for the syllabus we follow.)


Progress and Attainment


The School continually assesses the progress and attainment of each pupil to determine whether individual learning objectives have been achieved. These assessments are used to inform future programmes of study for individual children.

Records of work covered, progress and attainment in each National Curriculum subject are kept for each pupil and these are discussed regularly at our parents' evenings.  As a matter of course, parents are encouraged to raise any concerns or queries with their child's teachers at the earliest opportunity.  Parents have continuous access to all curriculum policies and current curriculum material through our Parents' Information Area in reception.  We also publish termly curriculum newsletters to our parents.
