Our  school vision of Enjoy, Include and Achieve is expressed through our approach to learning at The Queen Anne.

Learning is planned to motivate, engage and develop children’s next steps for learning. Our approach fosters a growth mindset in our children.

We plan learning opportunities to develop children’s thinking skills. Children are encouraged to think, question and discuss in all subject areas. Children are supported to develop a growth mindset and resilient approach to learning.

We recognise that each child has their own learning needs. We plan a differentiated curriculum to meet the needs of each child. Work is planned to address specific skills development.

Learning for all children is enriched through a wide range of school visits, visitors and themed learning weeks.

We are fortunate to have extensive school grounds, which are used not only to develop learning in an outdoor environment, but also to develop understanding of sustainability and about local, national and global environment issues.
