Literacy is taught daily with a strong emphasis on the development of speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. The development of practical, mental and applied mathematics is achieved through our numeracy lessons.
Additional Modern Foreign Languages are added to the curriculum in Key Stage 2. Homework is provided throughout the school and is aimed at consolidating skills taught at school and encouraging you, the parents, to play an active role in your child’s education. Children’s progress is assessed throughout Key Stages 1 and 2 against standards from the United Kingdom ensuring we have a very good understanding of their ongoing progress, individual abilities and to ensure their future needs are met.
