In Red Deer Class we provide an enabling environment with challenges and enriching experiences that relate to the needs of our children. It is important that the experiences we offer enable our children to achieve successes in all areas of our curriculum. Our aim is to develop children holistically, through doing our best to meet their physical, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual needs.


We believe that all children have the ability to achieve their aspirations by developing a 'can do' attitude and a growth mind-set, through engaging in a stimulating and challenging learning environment.  We are proud of the enriching and diverse activities in which our children take part. Our aim within this is for the children to become confident, resilient and self-assured learners who are proud of theirs, and others' achievements.


Within the classroom we have Maths, English, science, topic and art working walls which are regularly updated to help scaffold the children's learning and to ensure that all learners are challenged to suit their individual needs. Our reading chart is updated weekly and recognises children who have read every day. Children in Red Deer build up to a prize when they have read everyday for four weeks to encourage reading for pleasure. 


Year 4 offers opportunities throughout the year for extra-curricular learning, including our annual three-day residential to Kilve Court, learning to play an instrument and participating in the Year 4 summer production.


Parents are truly valued as partners in their children’s learning and are invited to attend parents meetings.
