Aspirations are raised and confidence boosted as children diligently attend weekly two or three hour classes.
We employ dedicated, experienced teachers who encourage our pupils to maintain high standards.
View the profiles of some of our teachers.
We help children to reach their full academic potential by concentrating on reading fluently, spelling accurately, nurturing a love of books and practising basic mathematical functions.
We use Irina Tyk’s Butterfly Book, a highly effective synthetic phonics programme, to help the children learn to read fluently and confidently.
Our teachers also design many of their own lessons and resources depending on their pupils’ needs. Each school has a book box to foster a love of reading in the pupils.
Small class sizes
Children are grouped by ability rather than by age, allowing each pupil to work at their appropriate level. We provide at least one teacher for every ten children. Support teachers work with individuals who require more intense support and benefit from learning in a one-to-one environment.
High standards of behaviour
We have high expectations for excellent behaviour, courtesy and a calm learning environment. The children sit in rows and complete their work individually, rather than in groups.
Partnership with parents
Parents supervise the completion of homework tasks and play a key role in synchronising our reports with those from their child's full time school. Our teachers provide parents with regular feedback, both informally when children are collected at the end of classes and formally in end of term reports.
