Much is made of the needs of the 21st century learner and it is incumbent on every good school to prepare its pupils well for the world in which they will work. However, children will always need a thorough understanding and a good grasp of the basics. Nothing the future holds will replace the need for our children to be able to communicate, read and calculate and our traditional approach to these vital elements underpins our curriculum.
In Years 3 and 4, teaching is still predominantly given by the form teacher with specialists for Art, Music, Arabic, French and PE. The Heads of Year 3 and 4 work closely with all class teachers to oversee the academic and pastoral wellbeing of all children in those years.
