RE

RE is taught following the Leicestershire Scheme which focuses on key questions across all faiths. We teach these units of work during focus weeks throughout the year, allowing us to think deeply and reflect on our own and others beliefs and traditions. Each day we have an assembly which is our act of collective worship which focus on world events and our values. Throughout their time at the school, all pupils visit the local church and we regularly welcome faith visitors to our assemblies.

Computing

Computing lessons are taught discretely predominantly using purplemash units of work, where possible these are linked to our Pathway Questions to further make links and deepen understanding of concepts. Laptops and ipads are utilised across all subjects of the curriculum to further enhance learning where applicable.

Music

Our Music lessons follow the Charanga Scheme of learning, in addition to weekly signing lessons carried out in key stages across the school. Pupils have access to a wide range of additional music provision from singing lessons, instrument tuition to class ensemble tuition. Each year we take part in the Young Voices performance at the Birmingham National Indoor Arena and have regularly taken part in choral performances as part of the BBC's fundraising for Children in Need.

Assemblies

Each week our assembly time allows pupils to explore world events and British Values. Each week, these sessions allow pupils to learn more and make connections with their own lives and beyond as we deepen understanding of our school values and celebrate and share our successes across the school. Each week is organised as follows: 

Monday  Tuesday  Wednesday  Thursday  Friday 
Picture News Picture News Reflection Values  Celebration Singing 

 During our Tuesday assembly, pupils reflect on the news of the week, explore British Values and the UN rights of a child. They complete a short piece of work focused on this each week.
