|All-Through Learning Community|
At Buxton School, we will be able to plan the curriculum from 3 to 16 because the majority of children will move seamlessly through the school. In this way we can ensure that there is continuity in the curriculum and that children can make real progress.
Science & Health
Following Cann Hall’s excellence in developing children’s experience of being a healthy school and emphasis on ecology and Tom Hood’s success as a specialist science college, it is planned that teaching science and developing healthy lifestyles will be a major focus for Buxton School.
We will ensure that the curriculum will provide many opportunities for children to learn about science including the use of outside ecological and scientific learning spaces.
It is important to us that all children feel secure and happy so they are keen to come to school and learn. All children have the right to learn in a safe environment and positive consistent behaviour through praise and reward systems will be developed. Clear rules and expectations will be developed consistently across the school. Our All-Through School will provide a joined up strategy for meeting pupils’ additional needs with information effectively shared. There will be provision for pupils with speech, language and communication difficulties. Relevant support will be in place for gifted and talented children and for those with learning difficulties and with disabilities.
The new building will ensure that there is improved inclusion with the appropriate disabled access. The school will ensure that there is sustained effective engagement with parents and support agencies to meet the needs of all children.
