North Zone Information

North Zone is our provision for primary pupils. We have 3 classes in North Zone: Jupiter, Mercury and Saturn. Each purpose-built classroom is equipped to offer a calm, safe and inspiring learning environment for our pupils.

Our curriculum is based on Nurture as we support pupils to develop their social and emotional skills. The North Zone long term curriculum plan for 2018-2019 can be found on the links to the right. Lessons follow the National Curriculum which is delivered in a topic led approach encompassing English, Maths, Science, PE (including swimming), RE, PSHE, Computing, Music, History, Geography, Art and Design.

We use the following phonics schemes; The interactive online phonics websites – ‘Teach your monster to read’  and ‘Phonics Play’, The Oxford Reading Tree scheme, Nelson Thornes, Letters and Sounds.

We also have a daily ‘SPICE’ lesson. This encompasses social, physical, intellectual and emotional aspects of learning and is a time to focus on core British values such as mutual respect and tolerance of those with different beliefs and faiths.British Values

Pupils are rewarded for earning their stars and bonus points throughout the day, and each day ends with the opportunity for pupils to enjoy a variety of play-based activities in their golden time. They also work towards Friday afternoon ‘Cosmic Time’ which is a reward afternoon offering a range of exciting learning opportunities which pupils may choose to take part in.



Our pastoral lead meets and greets the pupils on arrival in the morning and is trained in Restorative Practice and Emotional First Aid. Also, works with our pupils on a 1:1 basis through the day, depending on their needs and leads our break time activities in the playground, or in the Lounge if it is raining.

We have a team of experienced Teaching Assistants based in North Zone who work with pupils in class and on a 1:1 basis, as well as at break times.
