Becoming a Primary
In September 2017, we formally became a Primary School, and by September 2018 had a full primary provision for pupils aged 4 - 11 years.
The Primary National Curriculum (as revised in 2014) remains the same as that taught previously in the middle schools, but it is now taught in the Primary School structure, such that they have a class teacher who delivers the whole curriculum as well as maintaining and deep understanding of their pastoral needs. Periodically, we have subject specialist coming in to school to extend the offer, such as a French teacher, sports coaches or visual artists.
We are extremely grateful for the ongoing fundraising efforts of parents, which enables us to purchase additional equipment and develop a really excellent provision.
Our Behaviour Policy and our Anti-Bullying education has been adapted to include approaches suitable for pre-teens, and our PSHE curriculum, including Sex and Relationship Education, has progressive planning in place.
It has already been a great pleasure to see the Year 5 and 6 pupils blossom in both their learning and their personal responsibilities and relationships. Thank you all for supporting us on this journey.
