Children are taught in a variety of ways, for example, whole class teaching, small group work, paired work (when appropriate) and one to one work  with a teacher or HLTA .

Flexible groupings are in place for the teaching of Numeracy and Literacy. Children are always encouraged to give their best, work to the best of ability in extending their skills, knowledge and understanding at their own  individual level.
