We believe that every aspect of our curriculum should be taught to the highest possible standard. This means highly trained generalist teachers (class teachers) teaching high quality lessons in English, mathematics and across the subjects that make up our contexts for learning.
We recognise that some subjects in the curriculum require a very specific skillset and knowledge base and for this reason we employ specialist teachers to teach Physical Education, French, Art and Music to children from Reception to Year 6. This is a measure of the value we put on these subjects.
Again, this approach is proving very popular with the children who are excited to work with a variety of teachers, coaches and professional musicians across the week and who recognise the benefit of learning from impassioned and knowledgeable adults.
