We are very aware that children learn in different ways, so we take into account different learning styles, and offer a variety of approaches – visual, auditory and kinaesthetic – to meet the needs of all our pupils. Children are encouraged to take risks in order to learn and become independent thinkers. Information and communication technology is linked to all areas of the curriculum. It is taught as a tool to learning and all pupils from Reception Year upwards use laptops regularly. iPads are used throughout the school, from EYFS to KS2, and all pupils follow the new computing curriculum objectives. There is a SMARTboard in every classroom, the library and the nursery, offering wide-ranging, exciting opportunities to enhance learning, and pupils of all ages use them confidently and competently.
