Classes

As in mainstream school, our classes work on the National Curriculum subjects. We concentrate on working in different ways: using whole class teaching, small group, paired and individual approaches. We carefully adapt our teaching so that pupils can access the curriculum and we have developed a range of techniques and strategies to ensure this.

All classes are equipped with computers and interactive whiteboards, these are used to enhance and enrich the curriculum. This includes supervised use of educational sites on the internet. We also have a range of laptop computers, used across the academy which allow many opportunities for the children’s learning, as well as for whole class ICT teaching.

Playtimes are fun as the children are able to use our well-equipped playground under the watchful eye of the supervisors. A variety of playground games are also provided such as skipping, bubbles, and bat & ball. Our extensive grounds also provide opportunities for studying the environment.
