In Owls a cross-curricular approach is adopted as much as possible, however some subjects are taught according to specific guidelines in preparation for the end of KS2 statutory tests. Here the aim is for the pupils to be more independent in their learning and they are encouraged to challenge themselves to develop their own knowledge and understanding. It is within these last two years that the pupils are getting ready for moving onto the high school and therefore have greater responsiblilities throughout the life of the school; preparing the way ahead.
Pupils are also given the opportunity to take part in a reidential trip to build collaborative and co-operatie teamwork building independence. The pupil's abilities are also celebrated and embraced and many after school clubs support these.
Pupils who have a particular talent are encouraged to shine throught the provision of Able, Gifted and Talented events.
