Our Vision

Our vision is to create a federation of schools where children succeed and are proud of their achievements. We strive to actively promote British values and prepare our children to become role models, thus preparing them for life in modern Britain. To do this, we create a respectful, inclusive atmosphere that is welcoming, fun, friendly and safe. We are a federation that nurtures curiosity and creativity through an inspiring, challenging and engaging curriculum, where learning is at the heart of all that we do. Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in an environment where success is celebrated. Our ethos is delivered through these aims for our children:

• To teach tolerance and respect to all children. All children are valued individuals and should be respected.

• To encourage everyone to have high expectations of themselves in an environment where they can reach their personal best.

• To promote equality of opportunity and aim to develop the children’s awareness of moral, cultural, social and spiritual issues.

• To have engaging and challenging opportunities through a creative and inclusive curriculum within the school and beyond into the local community.

• To encourage excellence by sharing successes and supporting the children to reach their full potential.

Through the aims of the Federation, we actively promote lifelong learning whilst ensuring the children respect one another, enjoy their school experiences and achieve their personal best.

Arrangements for the Organisation of Teaching English and Mathematics 
In English, we use a book based approach where the book acts as a stimulus for writing. Over a period of time, children get the opportunity to speak, listen, take part in drama, write and edit their work. They also take part in a daily shared reading lesson which focuses upon building upon their fluency and developing their comprehension skills. 
All children in Reception and KS1 participate in daily phonics lesson. All children are assessed every half term and teaching is planned according to the assessmentAdditional adults are used to support children within class and provide intervention groups where needed. Once children have consolidated their phonic knowledge they progress to shared reading.
In Maths, we teach and plan lessons using White Rose scheme of work. Children are provided with opportunities to practise their fluency and apply this knowledge to be able to answer increasingly challenging questions. ​
