What the school says...
Northchapel Primary School has an associated pre-school for children between the ages of two and four years old. A parent and toddler group provides for families from birth of a child. Tranisition from the pre-school to the primary school, between classes and beyond the primary school to the intermediate schools is a strength of the school.
The school's ethos and philosophy centers on children's independence, thinking skills and creative learning. All children are expected to develop an understanding of their own learning styles and those of their peers. Older children are given the opportunity of being responsible for the learning of younger children through peer coaching. All children are expected to be partners in the planning of their learning activities with the teaching teams. Basic skills of literacy and numeracy alongside subject skills and knowledge are taught rigourously meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum and taking the children well beyond it.
In June 2006 OFSTED reported that 'the attention paid to the pupils' personal development and well-being is outstanding. The strong emphasis given to pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development helps pupils develop a sensitive approach to life and everyday issues, and to appreciate the achievement of others.' ...Read more

Special Education Needs
Due to the nature of the school (being a small primary school), all children are known intimately and can be planned for as individuals. 'Individual Education Plans' are produced in collaboration with pupils and parents. IEPs are reviewed and rewritten three times a year. Children benefit from a combination of individual or small group learning for their special needs. 'Master classes' are provided for very able and talented children as are excel groups. This provision is made based on regular needs audits throughout the year.
