'Learn, enjoy, believe; together we achieve'
We aim to provide our children with a broad and balanced curriculum, which is matched to each child's individual needs and is rooted by Christian distinctiveness and core values.
At Friskney, we believe that parents and carers are a child's first teacher and that the foundations laid down by a family is the starting point in a child's education.
In EYFS we emphasise the development of listening and social skills and introduce the importance of independent learning through activity based learning experiences.
In Key Stage 1 the skills and attitudes developed during the Foundation Stage will be embedded, giving each child access to the whole curriculum. Their progress will be tested at the end of Year 2 (KS1 SATs) and compared to that of other pupils locally and nationally.
In Key Stage 2 children will be encouraged to develop their abilities through discussion, reasoning, experimenting, listening, thinking and problem solving. Our older children are encouraged to take a more responsible leading role in school as prefects, playground leaders and mini police, helping our younger children. At the end of KS2 our Year six children take the KS2 SATs where again progress is measured against children locally and nationally, as well as individually against their previous assessments. We give every support to parents who wish their child to take the 11+, including allowing our children to take the test within our school.
