|Teachers follow a carefully designed Spiral Curriculum, which builds on previous knowledge each year through formative assessment and clear new Learning Intentions for each lesson. The curriculum offers a range of appropriate activities for each topic using a variety of multi-sensory methods - balancing formal and informal teaching. Our teachers plan weekly engaging lessons tailored to the needs of their individual classes, developed within the overall curriculum framework.
