How We Teach

We believe that learning should be full of joy and wonder, while equipping children with the academic, social and emotional skills they need to thrive.

General Overview

The whole school has worked together to develop a set of learning and teaching principles for BSB and these, along with the specific developmental needs of different ages of children, are what we intend for your child to experience in class: 

  • We provoke wonder and joy in learning 
  • We build and nurture strong relationships and know our learners well 
  • We are experts in our field, engaging learners to discover more to make a difference 
  • We create inspiring and supportive environments that promote creativity and enable ownership of learning 
  • We develop knowledge and skills for life and learning

Areas of learning

Our 1-5 curriculum is built around the best evidence from international research into early childhood development and aims to create a playful, enabling environment where children learn independently with the support of expert adult interactions.

In Key Stage 1 we believe that good practice builds on excellent foundations from Early Years. We balance a joyful, play-based approach with the demands of the English National Curriculum so that children are well prepared for the transition to Upper Primary.

In Upper Primary we build on the good practice established in Lower Primary while also recognizing the increasing demands that secondary education will place on our children. These are bridging years as our children grow academically, socially and emotionally.

Our Units of Discovery cover the content of History, Geography, Science, Design Technology, Art and PHSE. They have been crafted to encourage children to make connections between subjects and to ask big questions about the world they live in.
