Religious Education is taught according to the Dudley Local Authority agreed syllabus. A daily act of collective worship (assembly) takes place which covers Christian based principles and moral issues. The beliefs of other cultures are respected. Any parent with concerns or who wishes their child to be excluded from assemblies or religious education should consult the Headteacher. During the Year each class leads an assembly to which parents are invited.

 

If you require any further information relating to our curriculum please speak to the class teacher.

 

PHONICS

We follow the Read Write Inc., Phonics programme developed by Ruth Miskin, This provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy. It is used by more than a quarter of the UK's primary schools and is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

Each Read Write Inc. programme meets the higher expectations of the new curriculum and uses effective assessment to accelerate every child's progress.

Once the children have completed the phonics programme they move onto the Literacy and Language programme.

 

Additional Educational Needs

All parents want their child to be happy and successful in school. However, we know that on average 1 in every 5 children will need some extra help with their learning, behaviour or language skills at some point whilst at school. At Brierley Hill Primary school this special support is managed by Miss Knowles. The key to children making progress is a partnership between home and school. The support and encouragement you can offer your child can make a big difference to the progress they make.

The most important person is your child, like you we know your child is special we will do our best to help them succeed.
