We believe that using different teaching methods, which are rooted in theory of different teaching styles, will help the pupils be more engaged, motivated and reach their full potential. In order to maintain the highest impact we have established a variety of teaching approaches, which are consistent and embedded. We have a clear vision, which helps the children to understand how their schooling applies in the real world. We encourage children of mixed abilities to work together by promoting small group or whole class activities. Through verbally expressing their ideas and responding to others, pupils develop self-confidence, as well as enhance their communication and critical thinking skills, which are vital throughout life.

We pose thought provoking questions, which inspire our pupils to think for themselves and become more independent learners. This supports out school development plan. Encouraging pupils to ask questions and investigate their own ideas helps improve their problem solving skills as well as gain a deeper understanding of new concepts. Both of which are important life skills. Open differentiation allocated tasks based on ensuring all the children work at their own ability with the opportunity to have a clear challenge. This is evident with the use of devices in each classroom, sharing the vision that all pupils become independent learners equipped with the skills to develop their own learning and understanding.
