For the majority of the day the children work with their own teacher, as a class, in groups, or individually. However, when appropriate, children are grouped on an ability basis for specific curriculum subjects. Whenever possible, extra adult help is introduced. Within Literacy and Numeracy teaching, setting can take place. This arrangement has been introduced as a strategy to meet the individual needs of all our pupils.
As part of our desire to provide an enriched curriculum, a number of specialist teachers are employed to teach dance, aspects of PE, art and French. Children enjoy these opportunities at specific times during the year.
In addition to the teaching staff, all classes benefit from having a teaching assistant to help the children with their learning. Teaching assistants are also allocated to children with specific special educational needs.
