As a school, we embrace the Thrive ethos and our behaviour policy incorporates elements of the Thrive approach. Each area of school has a Thrive/nurture space, where pupils are able to spend time. Nicola Fletcher-Borrell is our Thrive practitioner in school. She works across school to offer advice and write programmes alongside class teachers. She also works 1:1 with some pupils.

Tapestry is an online learning journal where children’s achievements can be recorded and celebrated and stored online in their own learning journal. Parents are also invited to share photos and videos which can be uploaded from home. Tapestry is used across Lower school and some groups in Upper school also use it. Staff update Tapestry each half term to give an overview of achievements.

Across school we use Read Write Inc. to teach children to read. For pupils following the Developmental Curriculum, Read Write Inc. has been adapted to include early mark making and key object recognition. Pupils then progress onto the formal programme.
