Planning

Teachers plan in year group teams in order to ensure that all children share similar experiences and have equal access to a broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum.

Assessment and record keeping is agreed throughout the school and a written report is produced for parents at the end of the Summer Term. The school offers opportunities for parents to discuss their child’s progress during termly consultation appointments. There are also open mornings where parents can pop into school and observe their child in different subjects.
