Children at Dartford Primary Academy earn house points for good work and good behaviour. Each week, in celebration assemblies, the House Captain and Vice Captain share the total points for the week. The winning house ribbons are then attached to the House Cup for that week. We also celebrate each class that has earned the most points for their respective houses.
Pupils are given many high quality opportunities to develop their curiosity and creativity. They are encouraged to use their imagination, for example when thinking of ways to praise a friend, and are taught to respect the feelings and viewpoints of others.
Pupils are engaged and motivated by the way teachers present and teach the well-planned curriculum. This not only ensures that good learning takes place but makes a strong contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Teaching assistants make a strong contribution to the good learning taking place, especially when pupils with special educational needs are taught in small groups outside the classroom. They work in very close partnership with teachers and bring an additional range of helpful skills and experiences into the classrooms.
