We assign classroom work according to ability, giving every pupil the opportunity to experience the feeling of accomplishment. Our academic approach balances challenge and support to enable pupils to thrive academically. Achievement and progress are celebrated regularly with certificates, awards and dedicated celebration assemblies.


As part of The Elms assessment process regular academic reviews take place based around the concept of SATs. Our bespoke approach enables teachers to tailor each aspect to suit the needs of our children. The outcome is personalised and challenging targets which are followed up with reports to parents and termly face to face meetings.
