At Redcliffe School, we work within a strong moral framework based on core Christian values. Promoting an appetite for learning and discovery is central to our teaching philosophy, where individuality and independent thought are encouraged and valued. We firmly believe every child will achieve success given a nurturing and happy environment. Our children are taught to express themselves, to have a voice and to share what they have learned.
We offer our pupils a diverse, modern curriculum that encourages a balanced and confident approach to learning.
Alongside teaching traditional values and social skills, we place great emphasis on developing literacy and numeracy. Lessons are designed to cater for all academic abilities and every child's specific needs are taken into account. There are computers and interactive whiteboards in every classroom to enhance lessons. Specialist teaching is provided for French, Music, Art, Sport and Ballet. Our sporting curriculum is varied and we are proud of our record in netball, hockey and football against other local schools.
The core curriculum at Redcliffe comprises: English, Mathematics, Science, French, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Art, Music, ICT, Speech and Drama, Physical Education and Personal, Health and Social Education. Latin is taught in the final two terms of Wordsworth (Year 6). The youngest children in the Nursery and Kingfishers (Transition) classes follow the guidelines of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) program. This places much emphasis on a busy, fun and practical cross-curricular approach to learning at every level.
