Learning and Teaching
It is not just what you learn but how you learn;
children need to become learners for life to reach their full potential.
Our rich and varied curriculum will provide opportunities to develop skills to be successful in the future, including Language, Literacy, Maths, Science and ICT as well as History, Geography, Art and Design, RE, PSHE, PE, Music and Modern Foreign Languages. As an Academy we will follow the outline of the National Curriculum.
The emphasis will be teaching through engaging topics, where creative learning is linked through exciting and relevant contexts that meet the different interests and needs of all its pupils.
Teachers and Learning Assistants will support the children’s learning, using their knowledge and skill to make a difference to every child.
The curriculum of the school comprises all the opportunities for learning which the child encounters during the school day. Our expectations are high and we hope that by ensuring each child becomes an independent learner, they are able to achieve their full academic potential.
The curriculum is designed to help children acquire the essential skills of literacy and numeracy so that they become fluent in the use of spoken language, in reading and in writing, and that they become increasingly competent in the understanding and application of Mathematics.
All the learning which takes place in school is dependent on the four inter-related skills of talking, listening, reading and writing.
In addition to this the school follows the Surrey Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. Parents and carers who do not want their child to take part in Religious Education lessons or in collective acts of worship should express their wishes in writing to the Head of School.
