All aspects of school life work on the ‘Positive Approach’ to learning. Monitoring and testing are used to profile an individual’s strengths and weakness regularly.
We use a range of NFER tests including Cognitive Ability Tests to track children’s progress. Formal reports are sent home termly, but parents meetings, both planned and ad-hoc provide a continuous dialogue between home and school.
Class sizes are below average and children are treated as individuals with their own needs being met as required. Our school family is made up of children of different abilities, background beliefs and cultures. We teach the children to respect these differences and in the same way communication with parents is vital and we work hard at maintaining good relationships based on trust and communication.
"Staff have developed strong partnerships with parents. All the parents who spoke to inspectors were very positive about their children’s experiences and progress through Reception. Reflecting the views of many, one parent commented: ‘My child has settled in well to Reception and he is learning and developing faster than I expected.” – (Ofsted, November 2017)

In the Autumn term there is also the opportunity to see the school at work during one of our 'Working Open Days.'
