At Alderbrook we want all our pupils to develop a real love for learning so we ensure that we tailor the curriculum, which is based on the National Curriculum, carefully in order to inspire our pupils. The curriculum is designed to provide breadth and depth. Subject Leaders, Phase Leaders and the AHT for Teaching and Learning oversee, review and monitor the teaching of their subjects across the school.
Pupils are taught mainly by their class teachers. We have specialist French, Music, Gymnastics, Dance, Games, Swimming and Art teachers. Pupils are taught in a variety of ability grouping to secure the best outcomes for every pupil.
We offer curriculum evenings at the start of each year to provide parents with information about what the pupils will be learning each term and how we intend to teach it. There are also termly parents' evenings and a written report, informing parents of their child’s next steps.
