We strive for all children to achieve their full potential. To this end, we track and monitor progress not just attainment rigorously and put interventions in place to stretch and support all of our children.

Teachers create an attractive and welcoming learning environment; they establish very positive relationships with pupils and know their classes well. Having extremely high expectations of themselves and their pupils, the combination of the teachers’ enthusiasm and passion for teaching, together with the pupils’ excitement for learning, has led to exceptional achievement for a great many pupils.

We follow the Ruth Miskin "Read, Write Inc" scheme for Phonics and it is our aim to have every child reading fluently by the end of Year 1. All staff who teach in the Early Years, Year 1 and Year 2 have had extensive training on the program. Parents are invited to come to workshops and meetings early on in Reception, as well as in Year 1, to learn more about this so that they can support their children's learning. Children also use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme, which is supplemented with books from Project X and an online library provided by Bug Club.
