Excellence, Aspiration, Inclusion, Respect

We aim to develop pupils for the challenges of their future.

They will be confident, articulate, independent and adaptable young people, who are able to show kindness, consideration, compassion and respect for all aspects of the world around them. They will have a positive self-image, an engaging curiosity to explore the wider world and a sense of excitement for the future.

School Organisation

The school is organised over 18 classes:

Foundation Stage with three classes.

Key Stage 1 has three Year 1 classes and two Year 2 classes.

Lower Key Stage 2 comprises of two Year 3 classes, two Year 4 classes, and one mixed year 3 and 4 class.

Upper Key Stage 2 has two Year 5 classes and three Year 6 classes.

Each of these stages is overseen by a team leader who is also part of the school management team.

Reading Schemes and Phonics

Our reading schemes, are organised into the same learning phases as our phonics scheme 'Letters and Sounds'. We supplement the Pearson's Phonic Bugs scheme with Collin's Big Cats and some Oxford reading tree.

Mathematics

The Moulton Cluster of Primary Schools have produced a maths calculation strategies document. The document covers the four areas: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and explains the progression of methods children should be familiar with as they move through primary school. Children need to be secure with each method before moving onto the next one.
