Foundation Stage The Nursery children enjoy a good transition into the Reception class with both sets of children attending Forest School together each Friday morning. Learning in the Reception class continues to build on the firm foundations of their Nursery education and the children make exceptional progress; many of the children exceed expected levels of achievement across the Early Learning Goals. If your child has achieved something special at home, be it tying their shoe for the first time, something funny that they said, or anything else you think is worthy of a mention, please download our “Wow!” form, print it out and return it to the school. We will put it on our special “Wow!” achievement board.
Key Stage 1 Curriculum
Key Stage 2 Curriculum Children in Key Stage 2 enjoy being taught by subject specialists and they benefit from the expert knowledge they receive in lessons. Children develop as confident, independent learners within our superbly resourced learning environment where skills such as touch typing are taught for life. Children develop self-confidence through experiencing a broad and enriched curriculum; where the arts and sport are greatly valued alongside academic subjects. Identifying and encouraging individual talents builds a confidence that transfers to all areas of learning. There are numerous opportunities for all children to discover where their particular talents lie. This broad curriculum is enhanced by the wide variety of high quality extra-curricular activities available to the children every day e.g. individual instrument tuition, Mandarin, tennis, Speech and Drama, kickboxing and water polo at our own swimming pool. Classroom boundaries and opportunities for learning are often stretched through visits within the local area and more distant excursions and field trips.
