About our school experience


Candidates can spend time in each phase of the school to see how teaching and learning develops through the different age groups, from Nursery to Year 6.
There will be observations of the teaching of phonics using 'Read Write Inc.', maths using 'Maths No Problem' and English through 'Talk 4 Writing'. The afternoon will be focused on the wider curriculum.
Candidates will be able to spend time interacting with pupils within the lessons and across the day, as they spend time in classes across the school.
