Providing an attachment friendly community which fosters warmth with high boundaries so that all can achieve to their full potential.
In line with the national curriculum recommendations our curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. Pupils in Theta are taught a year 8 curriculum which is differentiated down in order to meet the needs of each individual child while ensuring appropriate challenge.
We have changed the way we will be running our termly topics for the academic year of 2017/18. We will now be running our topics based on our schools core values of GROWTH.
Gratitude – Is created by respecting all, being thankful and helping others. We are charitable to all, locally, nationally and globally.
Resilience – Is created by trying new things and persevering when we find it difficult. We support each other in finding solutions.
Optimism – Is created by embracing change in a positive way. We encourage each other to approach every day challenges in an enthusiastic and confident way
Wisdom – Is created by demonstrating knowledge, understanding and reflection. We share our experiences and insight with each other.
Teamwork – Is created by respecting and working together to learn and achieve. We strive to be positive role models for each other.
Harmony – Is created by resolving any differences in a respectful, restorative way. We respect and celebrate diversity.
English and Maths homework will be sent home weekly on a Friday and must be returned the following Friday. It is very important that homework is completed regularly and that reading at home takes place at least three times a week. This will help your child to make the best possible progress. Homework can be emailed home if pupils/parents prefer.
Theta will be lucky enough to visit Garston Leisure Centre for swimming each Thursday during the first half term.
