Assistant Teachers work alongside the teachers in every year group in Early Years and Primary School, enabling more attention to be given to each student and closer monitoring of the work.
Key Stage 1 Curriculum
Our aim is for children to enjoy their time at school and to develop knowledge, understanding and values in order to reach their full potential in all academic and social areas of school life. Daily focus is given to English and Mathematics. Science, Geography, History, Art and Design are taught through a themed “topic” approach that enhances pupil learning. Of course Music, Physical Education, PSHE, Portuguese and Computing are also essential aspects of the curriculum.
In Language and Literacy, we aim to provide a rich and stimulating environment in which children find interest and pleasure in communicating in English. They are offered many experiences to develop their interest in reading with fluency, accuracy, understanding and enjoyment.
In Mathematics and Science, we aim to develop a knowledge and understanding of the role of these subjects in everyday life. Children are encouraged to relate their work to other areas of the curriculum.
