Educational visits

 

The 'Senses' Curriculum has been developed as school recognises that children have many different styles of learning and traditional classroom learning does not suit everyone. Even though educational visits are part of the school day and linked to the curriculum, because they are in a different setting, there is a greater sense of adventure and freedom to explore, for children to think for themselves and make connections to what they've learnt in the classroom.  On school visits, children can take risks they wouldn't be able to in the classroom.

SATS Information

Do you have a child in primary school in year 2 or year 6?

If so, they will be taking the national curriculum tests (commonly called SATs) in May 2017 . The tests are not qualifications and don’t affect your child’s future options in school.

The results are an opportunity to compare pupils nationally to ensure schools are helping pupils to master the basics in English and mathematics, and make progress.

They are also an important tool to help teachers identify pupils who may need additional support, and make sure this is put in place as early as possible.

 

For more information on these tests please read (PDF - SATS) or go to your child's class page to view a short film.
