We believe that pupils flourish and progress when they are able to access the curriculum. Every pupil has this entitlement and should be able to feel successful in their learning experiences. The National Curriculum supports this view and outlines three principles for inclusion:
- Setting suitable learning challenges
- Responding to pupils’ different needs
- Overcoming potential barriers to learning and assessment

We structure learning experiences carefully so that pupils always feel encouraged and motivated. The teachers’ objectives are made explicit so pupils know clearly what the expected outcomes are. When planning work, teachers will structure challenges appropriately, to support individuals who may be experiencing difficulty, as well as being able to extend the depth and breadth of study for individuals or groups who exceed the expected level of attainment.
Teachers use a variety of methods to promote learning and the development of key skills. Some lessons might be very teacher led, others are highly interactive. Alternatively we might ask pupils to work independently or as part of a group on a specific project. Many lessons contain a session at the end so that pupils gain experience of sharing their knowledge and understanding with their peers and teachers. We seek to draw out links between subject areas. The work of each class is based around one theme or project at a time.
Children are taught mostly by their class teacher. However some subjects are taught by specialist teachers and coaches, in particular MFL, PE and music at Y5/6

We Love Reading!
Throughout Tregoze Primary School, we strive to create a culture for reading where we harness a love of reading and a thirst for knowledge and creativity. We firmly believe that promoting a love of books it vital for continued progress as we believe English contributes to both school and life successes.
At Tregoze Primary School, we teach phonics through the Department of Education recommended “Letters and Sounds” programme. To develop and enhance reading, we use the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme and also Project X Books.
To ensure that we enhance a love for reading in our school, we will ensure that:
- All children have access to quality, age/phonic level appropriate books in school
- All children have reading records and access to appropriate books to take home and share with family and friends
- Classrooms are well stocked with age and level appropriate books, reading corners, listening stations and other ICT that supports reading
- The library is open to share stories and find books that interest the children
- New books and reading materials are sourced and children are invited to share books they have enjoyed and recommendations for future reading
- Competitions and challenges are run to encourage fun and family reading throughout school
- Paired reading with adults and older peers is used to support fluency and expression including volunteer parent readers
- World Book Day is celebrated and shared, as well as competitions and challenges being run to encourage a love of reading.
- Support material to develop comprehension is also available for parents.
In PSHE & C we are currently in the process of a transition from SEAL to JIGSAW which is a new current mindful approach to PSHE.
It teaches children to be aware of their thoughts and feelings as they happen, in the present moment, on purpose with no judgement.
Mindfulness is a vital tool for life it supports emotional resilience and also enhances focus and concentration; both optimise learning.
Mindful children can more readily focus choose their responses to situations rather than react in the thought flows and emotions.
In Jigsaw mindfulness is developed through the ‘Calm Me’ time in each piece (lesson). This consists of breathing techniques, awareness exercises, visualisations etc.
Jigsaw brings together PSHE education, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning.
Teaching strategies are varied and are mindful of preferred learning styles and need for differentiation. Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all year groups working on the same theme (puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike.
We are all very excited and looking forward to working with this in the months ahead and seeing the positive impact it will have on our school.
