A Holistic Approach to Education and Childhood Development
We offer a topic-based curriculum, we plan
learning around a topic which is dictated
by the interest of the current cohort and
local culture, linking as many subjects as
possible, giving children a more
meaningful, creative, context based
We personalise learning by offering specific
interventions during our tray time work
and also during a timetabled intervention
slot. Tray time is also an opportunity to
focus on the basic skills, including reading,
spelling, comprehension, tables knowledge
and recall and also handwriting.
We offer a rich, varied curriculum, with a
good balance of academic and skill-based
learning opportunities. This helps to build
confidence, self-esteem and resilience as
well as academic abilities. This balance
also helps to re-engage reluctant learners
back into education, allowing them to
discover a love of learning and an
enjoyment of education.
The classes at KS2, are all mixed age
groups, children are grouped by their
support / intervention need rather than by
their chronological age or academic needs.
Each class is staffed by a teacher and a
Progress Partner, there is a further PP to
provide 1:1, small group or an alternative
learning environment to support social,
emotional or academic needs.
Core subjects are taught during the
morning sessions and foundation, practical
or enrichment lessons are taught during
the afternoon sessions.
