Learning With Us

Our aim is to provide quality learning experiences that are structured, balanced, relevant to each individual child, and related to the real world.

In Nursery and Reception, your child will be learning skills, acquiring knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.

Your child should develop 3 prime areas first. These are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

These prime areas are essential for your child's healthy development and future learning.

As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, your child will learn a range of subjects, in line with the National Curriculum. To find out more about our approach to teaching the Curriculum, please click here.

 As well as Reading, Writing, Maths and Science, we follow a Core Knowledge Curriculum approach to learning, which you will also be able to find on the Curriculum page, linked above. 

The David Ross Education Trust offers a world-class education. Find our more about the academic excellence, strong community and outstanding opportunities on offer at each of our schools by watching the video below:
