We aim to give the children a knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live. We want them to be sensitive to others and understand individual personal relationships. At Elm Tree School, we encourage children to learn confidently and to communicate what they have learnt.
We believe that children should have the benefit of a broad and balanced curriculum. We are particularly keen to develop children's interests. We ensure children receive a rich curriculum by extending opportunities through visiting performers, musicians and school trips to a range of places. You will see examples of our recent trips if you look at our galleries page.
At Elm Tree School, we firmly believe that children learn best when they are able to make connections in their learning. Each term we will be looking at a theme which will encompass many curriculum areas; the themes chosen are those which we feel will captivate the children’s interest and their enthusiasm for learning. We believe that children learn best when they are actively involved. "Learning by doing" makes the work more interesting, more meaningful and more likely to make sense and be remembered. Problem solving and investigations are both important for primary school children. This kind of learning helps children to think more clearly, to raise questions, try out ideas and to record their findings. We have fully implemented the new National Curriculum.
