In Upper Key Stage Two, further links are made between ourselves and both Kenton and Studio West. Children and parents have the opportunity to visit both schools and meet with the Head teacher and staff.
Extended topic related homework tasks will be completed in each term. These will run alongside the weekly homework tasks and are designed to help children prepare for the increased demands of Key Stage Three.
Setting in English and Mathematics will begin in November after the initial parental consultation session. This will be within the year group, NOT across the phase. We believe this helps to prepare the pupils for the increased demands of the new curriculum also raising attainment for all groups.
There is a Study Support Club which runs after school two evenings a week (Year 5 - Wed; Year 6 - Thurs). This gives the pupils the opportunity to practise and extend their study skills in order to support their homework and school work.
