Building on the strong relationship we will have developed at Orchard Grove’s Nursery, we will mirror this system in the primary school. The school is a key support for parents in bringing up their child/ren and as a school, we will advocate the values and principles that we have embedded in our curriculum so that parents are strengthened and informed about parenting and how to support their child best. We place strong significance on the partnership between the child, the family and the school.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
The Trust has a deep commitment to ensuring that every child in the Trust achieves, belongs and participates. As a priority, there is a Trust SEND team which is focused on every child with SEND as well as identifying any potential SEND needs in others as early as possible.
Health and Wellbeing
This is a crucial part of our curriculum. This covers sports and PE, food and health, PSHE and philosophy for children.
Through sports and PE, children will develop physically and learn teamwork, healthy competition, experience of ‘failing forward to succeed and learn’ – a key part of our character education.
In the Early Years and through Key Stage 1, children will develop fundamental movement skills and coordination. They will be coached in improving such motor skills so they become agile and coordinated which will positively affect their ability to learn to write and to manipulate tools, as well as increasing agility, balance and coordination.
