Educational visits and visitors into school are an important aspect of our curriculum and are used to broaden the children’s understanding of the themes we teach.
We are committed to raising standards of Basic Skills at Glebe Academy. By Basic Skills, we mean the ability to read, write and speak in English, and to use mathematics and ICT at a level necessary to function and progress at work, and in society in general.
Our vision statements for Reading, Writing and Maths:
Reading: We will endeavour to provide outstanding reading experiences with exciting and inspiring learning opportunities that promote the importance of this lifelong skill. All children will experience a wide variety of contexts and settings with a range of stimulating resources to ensure the most effective progression takes place according to their age and ability.
Writing: We believe that children learn best when they are provided with a range of opportunities and skills for writing across the curriculum. Teachers will provide a stimulating environment that promotes all aspects of literacy learning. Children have access to a range of writing equipment and resources to support and further develop their writing.
Maths: We believe that Maths at Glebe Academy should be creative and engaging. It should be presented through a context which is meaningful and stimulating for all children at their own level. Children should be confidently able to apply their skills and knowledge to imaginatively solve problems.
