In Upper Key Stage 2, staff work closely together to ensure pupils have the opportunities to participate in a wide range of engaging and challenging activities. These experiences prepare pupils for life-long learning by enabling them to become: reflective learners; effective participators; independent enquires; team workers; creative thinkers; and self-managers. Parents are actively encouraged to play at active role in their child’s learning through parent workshop opportunities, home learning and celebrating their successes with us. Our half-termly newsletters will inform parents of our broad and balanced curriculum coverage.

Are you listening, boy? What is twenty seven plus forty five? Come on-faster now, we haven't got all day!
