We ask that as parents, you take every opportunity to explore the local area, community and wider global issues with your child. Involve them in topical issues, explore the local park, discuss where in the world they might want to travel to when older and why. Our children benefit when they get to have a wider understanding of the world around.
Children’s news websites such as CBBC Newsround or similar publications are often very useful, to help them understand their immediate world and beyond.
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.
