Our curriculum is tailored to meet individual needs and aspirations, which ensure all our children are interested and motivated to learn. We have high expectations and a strong focus on literacy and numeracy. We promote enjoyment for learning and encourage children to be independent, reflective learners through the development of thinking skills. To provide this curriculum, teachers plan carefully accounting for mixed-age classes using a two-yearly project cycle. This ensures continuity and progress in children’s learning.
There is a strong emphasis put on ‘learning to learn’ alongside building resilient learners with a ‘growth mindset’. To understand ‘Growth Mindset’ in more detail, watch this video of Carol Dweck.
Knowledge of how each individual learns best is important. Clear procedures are in place to identify and meet children’s individual needs providing extra support and new challenges where appropriate to help every child fulfil their potential.
How we support our children with special educational needs and disabilities is within our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) report: send-information-report-awbridge-november-2016
