All our pupils have access to the full 2014 National Curriculum as it stands, 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 small written report three times a 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. However the most important aspect of our communication policy is our 'Open Door' ethos. This ensures that staff and parents are in constant contact and can act quickly should there be any issues.
Specialist staff team teach with our school staff in PE and we also benefit from specialist teaching in 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, harp, guitar, percussion, violin 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.
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.
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!
