Numeracy

Numeracy is developed on a daily basis. All concepts are introduced using concrete apparatus and gradually moved to the abstract. Having smaller classes enables the teacher to give individual attention to ensure that the concepts are grasped correctly.

Life Skills centres on the holistic development of the pupils. Religion, Guidance, Physical Education, Music and Computer Literacy are all taught by specialist teachers.

Formal and informal assessments are used throughout the year. Pupils receive a progress report at the end of each term.

Pupils experiencing difficulties are offered academic support in the afternoons by the subject teachers.
