Learning at Etchingham

We have high expectations in every area of school life and are learning centred.

Key drivers in ensuring that pupils strive for excellence are :

  • Continuing to develop the Partnership with Bodiam C E School.
  • Giving high value to enabling pupils to have the opportunity to be actively involved in and  steering their learning on a day to day basis
  • Promoting a ‘Curriculum for Learning’ which frequently involves real life contexts, motivates and engages pupils through high quality learning opportunities and their involvement with curriculum design and is FUN!

Ofsted 2012

     ‘The well-planned curriculum makes a strong contribution to pupils’

     spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness.

     Meaningful links between subjects are made through topic-based learning

     journeys.    These capture pupils’ imagination, develop their appreciation of

     art and other cultures and also provide them with opportunities to use

     their literacy and numeracy skills.

     These themes are extended in regular home learning activities which

     pupils enjoy and take pride in completing well.’

 

  • Encouraging ‘Behaviour for Learning’ which ensures that high priority is given to developing the respect and equality that permeate all aspects of school life.
  • Encouraging partnership and good communication with parents. Only with effective home / school partnerships can pupils be the best they can be.
