Junior School children study the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum, but it is no was constrained by its provisions. Planning places great emphasis on the need to provide a breadth of study and ensure our teaching is broad and balanced to allow children to develop each talent and interest which will enable them to identify their very own individual brilliance. We pride ourselves on providing a wealth of opportunities for our pupils so they can discover new strengths and talents; allowing them to reach outside their comfort zone enables children to build confidence form a young age.  

The Junior School curriculum is incredibly enriched and provides children with plenty of opportunities to find their strengths and develop a love of learning. Planning is pupil focused and annual subject audits take place to ensure what we teach suits our pupils and our cohorts.  

Pupils are assessed daily through oral and written feedback and formally at the end of each term. Formal assessments take place at the end of the Autumn, Spring and Summer Term and progress is tracked and monitored; this consequently informs teachers for their planning for the subsequent term.
