English, Mathematics and Science are included into Topic work and are also taught as solo subjects, this ensures that the children have a secure embedded knowledge base. The teaching of RE takes place within the Topic base where applicable, but also as a ‘stand-alone’ subject and is taught in accordance with the Bedford Borough guidance.
Each class has a Teacher and a Teaching Assistant. The teaching assistants work tirelessly to remove individual child's barriers to learning, this may include individual 1:1 work or small group work to help accelerate and extend learning.
