We are very proud of our pupils and see them mature socially, emotionally and spiritually as they move through school. We work hard to develop the whole child and seek to promote individual strengths. Children are given responsibilities: from monitor jobs in the early years, to being part of the school council and in later years applying for safety patroller positions.
We have strong links with the church and Rev Nigel Carter visits for an assembly with each key stage every week. Children in years five and six also attend the mid week communion service in church. Whatever faith background children come from, we strongly promote our Christian values and help children to understand how they can live them out. Children spend time in assemblies and curriculum lessons learning what the values mean to their lives. each term values awards are presented to pupils who demonstrate the values in their interactions with each other.
Our phonics results in Year One are consistently high. This is important to us because it means that our children learn to read well and have a strong foundation to build upon in later years. We have used the read Write Inc programme for many years although we use aspects of other phonics programmes to best meet our children's needs. Children begin our phonics programme in Nursery, and in similar way to Maths, this is built on and developed all the way through school. Giving children clear and consistent approaches each year is a cornerstone of our academic success.
