This is achieved through staff co-operatively and actively advocating and maintaining the following:
- a good classroom ethos in which pupils are motivated to learn.
- the use of a wide variety of resources.
- thoroughly prepared, organised, planned and resourced lessons with clear and focused learning objectives.
- high standards of achievement both in academic performance & behaviour.
- clearly organised and communicated classroom systems.
- good relationships with and between pupils as exemplified in their own conduct.
- differentiated tasks and activities matched to the needs, aptitudes and prior knowledge of individual pupils.
- the acquisition of knowledge, understanding and skills to encourage independence, resourcefulness and responsibility.
- regular assessment procedures as an integral part of good classroom practice.
- the provision and use of diagnostic information on pupils’ progress to evaluate their own teaching and to inform parents.
- a balanced variety of work, teaching styles and strategies.
- continuity and consistency between classes.
We aim to cater for the needs of individual children of both sexes from all ethnic and social groups, including the most able and those who are experiencing learning difficulties.
