All our pupils have access to the full 2014 Primary National Curriculum, differentiated to take into account individual learning needs.
We organise learning into termly themes as part of our creative curriculum approach, designed to make learning stimulating, relevant and exciting for all.
We hold three parent consultation evenings each year to discuss progress and achievements, and provide a written report at the end of the academic year.
Teachers regularly assess and report upon pupil progress in all subject areas, with a particular focus on English and Maths. We hold three parent consultation evenings each year to discuss progress and achievements, and provide a written report at the end of the academic year. Assessments take the form of formal, summative assessments such as non-statutory national curriculum tests and also teacher assessments which are carried out regularly throughout the year.
Specialist staff teach French, dance and music to pupils in KS2. We also benefit from specialist teaching in a number of sports including swimming at The New Beacon School and tennis lessons throughout the year at the Leigh Tennis Club. Children will learn a range of different sports throughout the year including football, tag rugby, netball, rounders, cross country, cricket, tennis and swimming. PE and Gym sessions are also held in Jessica's Hall and there are a number of different sports clubs for the children to join. Sports Day is also held on the village Green once a year.
Peripatetic teachers offer tuition in piano, flute, violin, harp, guitar and brass instruments . Peripatetic lessons are charged for by the tutors and information can be found in the Office if you are interested in these sessions.
A learning experience which stimulates and inspires.
Above all, we are committed to providing our pupils at Leigh Primary School with a learning experience which stimulates and inspires them whilst preparing them for life outside school. We aim to develop pupils as true lifelong learners, hungry for knowledge and understanding, and skilled in transferring learning skills into a wide range of areas. And we want them to look back on their time with us as a happy and magical time!
We held another Curriculum Evening at the end of September. The focus of this event was to share with parents the changes being made to the way we assess children. National Curriculum levels have now been disapplied and children will be assessed by whether they are emerging, expected or exceeding in relation to their year group's programmes of study.
Also during the evening parents had an opportunity to look at:
Topics the children will be studying this year;
Presentation and marking guidelines;
Relationship and sex education resources;
Behaviour and Rewards procedures;
Hamilton (English) and Collins (maths) resources;
New ICT resources in programming (Purple Mash)
Mr Eaton also spoke at 3pm, 5pm and 6pm on the new assessment procedures.
Below are some of the documents shared at the last Curriculum Evening and all the handouts will be avilable on this page after the meeting.
