Our class teachers use a balance of whole school, groups and individual teaching. The particular method they employ will depend on which they judge fits the purpose of the lesson, the nature of the task or the abilities of the children.

Assembly takes place on a daily basis in a variety of forms. During the course of a week there is a 'sharing' assembly or class assembly, Headteacher's assembly, Music assembly and Key Stage assembly. The assemblies follow a theme and may supplement the R.E. Curriculum.Parents are entitled to withdraw children from assembly if they wish. This request should be made in writing to the Headteacher.

Parents/carers are invited to join us for their child's Year Group Learning Assembly during the school year which usually takes place on a Friday morning or afternoon. In addition, we also welcome parents to special celebrations such as the end of the school year, Harvet Festival and Christmas. Notice will be given to parents through headteacher and curriculum newsletters or on the diary dates on this website. Parents of children in the Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 are also invited to attend a Reading Morning once a week - details of the morning for your child's year group can be found on your year group's school blog.

Community contacts include visiting the local library, estate agents, superstore, fire station and church.

Visits are organised from time to time to promote children's learning throguh first hand experiences. These support the school's curriculum and can be in the form of extended residential trips, day trips, visititors to school and themed days. School will try and provide as much notice as possible to allow parents to assist the school in meeting these costs.

After school / lunchtime clubs are organised on a termly basis. These clubs enable children to pursue their interests out of school hours. The variety of clubs is very much dependent upon the voluntary efforts and interests of the staff.  We warmly welcome parents/grandparents who might be able to help run clubs. Please click HERE for details of the current term's clubs.
