We use a range of teaching and learning styles. Teaching strategies need to be varied and mindful of the different learning styles to meet the PSHE and citizenship requirements of the National Curriculum.
We emphasise active learning by including the children in discussions, investigations and problem-solving activities. We encourage the children to take part in a range of tasks that promote active citizenship, e.g. charity fundraising, the planning of special academy events (such as an assembly or family/community event), or involvement in helping other individuals or groups less fortunate than themselves. We organise classes in such a way that pupils are able, through discussion, to set agreed classroom rules of behaviour, and resolve any conflicts. We invite speakers into the academy, such as health workers, police, business people and local religious representative’s to talk about their role in creating a positive and supportive community.
