Red House is a small school and many parents value this.
Every Child is an Individual
Experience has taught us that one size doesn’t fit all. Children learn at different rates and in different ways.
At Red House we pride ourselves on focusing on the individual child. Teachers form strong bonds with the children in their class. By understanding and treating every child as an individual they discover their unique personalities, interests and abilities. Teaching can then be tailored to suit the needs of pupils.
Through the creation of individual learning profiles teachers continuously monitor children’s strengths and areas for development. If required, early interventions can be put in place and appropriate support given so that every child is able to thrive.
We Focus On Learning, Not Testing
Our measure of success is far more than test results. Our pupils do not sit the government’s Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs), which we believe place unnecessary pressures on young children and restricts their learning experience.
Assessment for learning is important. Our teachers regularly assess both potential and progress, allowing us to tailor our teaching to address the individual needs of the children. However, testing is not our focus; meeting the needs of the children is.
