We believe that the best way to create confident and capable learners is to make sure they get off to the best possible start. Our Foundation Team work really ahrd to make this happen. 

  • Children explore the topics they love and use their interests to create new learning experiences
  • Children build relationships with each other and with the wider school community
  • Children engage in a play-based learning approach, which acknowledges the whole child in the Early Years which leads to better academic outcomes in both Literacy and Numeracy
  • The learning environment is carefully designed reflective of the latest Early Childhood research 

Class Schedule | Curricular Activities

Intentional opportunities for students who have transitioned out of the Foundation year  to further develop their identity with the wider school community. 

We ensure that we build on the foundational Literacy and Numeracy concepts student have been introduced to in their first years of school. Early intervention and targeted teaching are aimed at ensuring all students achieve essential literacy and numeracy concepts that will underpin future learning. 

Class Schedule | Curricular Activities

In our  3/4 communities students build a strong sense of themselves as learners and identify strengths and areas of development for future learning.

  • Collaborative learning is a focus, providing explicit teaching and learning opportunities to promote these essential skills
  • A Growth Mindset is created; encouraging each student to reach their full potential and seek challenges in their learning
  • Students are provided with learning opportunities to expand on known ideas through imagining possibilities and connecting ideas
  • Students are encouraged to think like authors, mathematicians, scientists and sports specialists as they take risks and create new learning

Class Schedule | Curricular Activities

Our 5/6 community work hard to promote the idea that we are all leaders and have the ability to lead our own learning. We challenge each other to be the best learners we can be. We recognise, accept and create opportunities to drive our own learning. We demonstrate leadership and promote student voice and are constantly reflecting on our thinking and learning.
