Teachers- Alwyn McRandle and Thecla Lill
The main focus of the early years is building on the key abilities, achievements and skills of literacy and numeracy. All the students are regularly monitored as to achievement and progress against the National Standards in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics as well as the whole of the curriculum. The aim is to instil in our students the ability to work cooperatively and effectively in group situations, as well as to develop independent work competencies. Digital technologies are a vital aspect of the teaching and learning. Children also engage in activities outside the classroom such as visits to museums, farms, historic parks which relate to their thematic studies.
