We have three main priorities in terms of the curriculum. These are;
Make sure that all children have the opportunity to apply their knowledge to solve problems in maths - MATHS MASTERY.
Another significantly important priority for the Year is to IMPROVE OUR OVERALL ATTANDANCE
How can Parents and Carers help with this?
Spelling and writing - Talk to your child about how a mistake is a good thing as it is the opportunity to learn something new. You have to write a spelling correctly twenty times before it goes into your memory!
Maths - Practice maths at home in the "real world" e.g. counting objects forwards and (especially) backwards for younger children, getting older children to scale up a recipe to make twice as much.
Attendance - Bring your child to school on time every day.
When children are learning to spell, they will make mistakes. If your child does any writing at home do not correct every mistake, rather look for two or three common words that they can practice. We use the "look, say, cover, write, check" method for learning spellings.

The national expectations for what children are expected to know and do have been significantly increased. This is what we measure them against. to see the expectations in each subject, have a look below.
Most children attend school every day unless they are very ill, some unfortunately do not. As we are a small school this has a big impact on our overall attendance compared to national averages. Please remember;
