OUR CLASS- Pickmere
We are currently a class of 27 children (mixed year 4 and 5) that like to work hard but also have a lot of fun along the way. Miss Spence is the Class Teacher, who is also head of Drama and all things fun and Miss Jeffries is our wonderful Teaching Assistant.
OUR SCHOOL- Delamere C of E Academy
At The Delamere C of E Primary Academy we are proud to deliver a rich creative learning experience that enables all the children to fulfil their potential. Our vision puts children first. When children enjoy all aspects of school and are enthusiastic, independent learners they gain the most from their education. We believe this climate for success is delivered through the creation of equal partnership between children, parents and the school.
The curriculum at our school is broad and balanced fulfilling all National Curriculum requirements. We structure learning to allow for as many creative cross curricular opportunities as possible. Underpinning this children take part in curriculum related visits that focus and further develop their learning.
" Pupils achieve outstandingly well and many reach standards that are well above those expected for their age. Pupils say they enjoy school and this is reflected in their excellent attendance. They are confident and courteous. Their behaviour is exemplary and parents report that their children love school'" Ofsted 2009
Learning takes place in mixed ability classes with approximately twenty children in each class. Children are encouraged to work in partnership with the teacher. Rather than just teaching knowledge we also focus on skills, enabling children to build upon each learning experience and become highly skilled independent learners.
The curriculum is enriched through extensive use of ICT, which is integral in our approach to differentiation, and vital to furthering children's learning in a modern ICT driven world.
