Achieving excellence in learning for all children is at the heart of everything we do.
We have very high expectations of all our students. Staff plan innovative learning for children to attain their absolute best while appealing to their interests and challenging them.
Building student stamina for learning ensures their growth in all areas. Underpinning all learning is the 21st Century Learning Design framework for collaboration, knowledge construction, self-regulation, real-world problem-solving and innovation, using ICT for learning, and skilful communication.
Our key foci in 2016 are:
- Reading through developing Daily 5, (read to self, listen to reading, reading to someone, work on writing and word work) and CAFÉ ,(a structure that allows teachers to teach one on one, small groups and whole class so that each child is working on the next step in their own learning.)
- Patient problem-solving in Maths, (developing skills and resilience to use maths for real purposes).
- Growth Mindset, (learning is not a fixed ability everyone has the ability to continue to learn.) We are a Kidsmatter School and this learning produces positive mental health, wellbeing and happy relationships for all children and their families.
Feel free to contact the school for an appointment with the Principal to gain further information.
