We are proud of our Curriculum and the impact of it, which helps pupils to:
- develop lively, enquiring minds, an ability to question and an ability to apply themselves to tasks and physical skills;
- develop personal moral values, respect for religious values and tolerance of other races’ beliefs and ways of life;
- understand the world in which they live and
- meet and exceed age related expectations so that they are ready for the next phase of their education.
Oak Tree Week
The aim of this week is to have the opportunity to reflect on the year; celebrate achievements, share the positives and refer back to the skills and knowledge that children have developed over the year (particularly within learning themes). It is entitled ‘oak tree’ as the idea is for classes to use the outdoor learning environment and share reflections as a group. We use this week to help form assessment judgements across curriculum areas.
ACE Learning Planning, Assessment and Teaching Tool (PATT)
Assessment at ACE Learning is at the heart of all teaching and learning. It is an on-going process with the main purpose of helping pupils and teachers plan the next steps in learning. Assessment is used as a tool to guide teaching and learning, ensuring that teaching is appropriate, and learners make good progress.
Passing robust information generated by assessments from teacher to teacher ensures that each child’s progress and future learning needs are understood. Through careful monitoring, we make sure that our approach to assessment remains manageable for all members of staff and meaningful for all children and their parents and carers. Teachers continuously assess progress through the year group objectives and record attainment on the ACE Learning Planning, Assessment and Teaching Tool (PATT).
