In Years 1 and 2, our pupils are taught the core subjects of Literacy, Mathematics and Science and a broad range of foundation subjects. Alongside these, specialist lessons in French, Music, Computing, Swimming, Forest School and PE add an extra dimension.
Our nurturing and stimulating environment continues to build upon the strong foundations and key skills of the Early Years Foundation Stage. We have created a learning which is exciting and varied.
We produce highly motivated learners with high levels of achievement through success. They receive praise to assist in their successful progression and to build self-confidence. Whole class, group teaching and individual attention promote happy, active learning.
The children will be encouraged to become more independent and responsible. The wide range of activities provided by fully qualified staff in a well-structured day enables each child to reach his or her own potential.
Through the IPC Curriculum we are able to link with schools all over the world through the use of video links and emails. The children also study a range of localities as part of their exciting topic work. Children from other cultures contribute to our knowledge and understanding.
All children participate in concerts and performances throughout the year. In addition, a variety of clubs provide a wonderful opportunity for children to further explore many different areas of creativity, expressive arts and physical activities.
Pupils are given the opportunity for quiet reflection and a chance to share their thoughts and feelings with others during class sessions. Our chapel is always available for everyday use.
