The staff in Owls are committed to securing the best possible academic outcomes for our children whilst supporting and promoting positive mental health. Our mornings are primarily focussed on reading, writing and maths, whilst offering opportunities for emotional regulation and positive social interactions. Our afternoons offer a broad and balanced curriculum alongside activiites designed to boost the children's social skills and emotional well-being. This includes cooking, gardening and ELSA sessions.
Owl Class has two classrooms - Nest and Flight. Our morning work, maths and English are taught separately in each classroom. Read Write Inc Phonics is taught to children in Nest Classroom and Shared Reading sessions are held in Flight Classroom. In the afternoons, the children access both classrooms.
