At The Robert Drake Primary School we aim to develop a child’s knowledge, experience and understanding to the best of their ability; to have as much independence as possible; to have an awareness of moral values and to be able to communicate their thoughts and ideas successfully to others.
The school aims to provide a broad, balanced, relevant, stimulating and differentiated curriculum which is accessible to all children. It incorporates the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and the teaching of Religious Education. The National Curriculum provides a necessary framework and ensures continuity throughout the child's school life.
The curriculum consists of activities designed to develop the intellectual, personal, social and physical development of children. The school aims to enable all children to achieve levels of personal development which will prepare them for modern society and to be responsible citizens. We aim for the children to become happy and confident individuals with a secure foundation in learning that will last throughout their lives.
Our teaching is child-centred in that our children are central to all our planning. We have high expectations of our children and aim to interest them so that they want to learn and enjoy their new skills. Success is a firm foundation for future learning and the children’s successes are celebrated.
Within their class our children are grouped according to their abilities in the different subjects where appropriate, and also have opportunities to work collaboratively with children of different abilities. Our planning is detailed, inclusive and differentiated to meet all children's talents, skills and abilities.
Children receive specialist coaching and tuition from a music specialist and sports coach.
