English teaching at Leigh Beck
At Leigh Beck, English is taught discreetly as a stand-alone subject with children placed in ability sets within their own year group. Within these sets support is provided for those that require it and challenge and expectations remain incredibly high for ALL children. Movement between the sets occurs after discussion amongst Set Teachers and constant assessment of pupils.
We invest heavily in resources, training and staffing to ensure children have access to the best learning experience possible. We believe in “quality first teaching”. In addition, we employ a wide range of interventions throughout the school, many one-to-one or very small group, targeting those who most need it. We search for the best, most practical and successful teaching ideas and are constantly looking to improve what we do.
