Assessment and Recording
Both formal and informal assessment is an integral part of our teaching and learning process. Our aims are to diagnose strengths and weaknesses in a child's learning, indicate the next stage in the learning process and to provide information on the experiences and achievements throughout the child's short career.
The children participate in several school visits during the year. Children are also given the opportunity to attend residential trips in years 3, 4 and 6.
The school doors are open from 8.40am. Registration starts at 8.55am and all children should be in class by this time. We have a morning & afternoon playtime of 15 minutes each, and lunchtime is 12pm - 1pm for the lower school children & 12:30pm - 1:30pm for the upper school children. School finishes at 3.40pm.
