Since the opening of this school leader's, governors and staff have worked together from the beginning with the fire of determination that ensures the quality of teaching and pupil's achievements are good. Pupils behave well. They are courteous and polite.
Children in our school come from different cultural backgrounds, they have different religions and they speak different languages. We celebrate and value this diversity. We encourage each of our children to be proud of their own culture, religion and language and to show respect to those of others.
The curriculum in the school is well planned with a priority given in developing high standards of literacy and numeracy. Our work is supported by a good level of resources and additional staffing to meet the individual needs of the children. We work hard to ensure each child has acquired the study skills that are necessary for them to continue their development at the next stage of education.
A positive partnership with parents is vital in achieving our objectives. Home and school must work together and we need your support and co-operation. In return, we hope you will find the school welcoming, willing to listen and willing to respond to your questions, concerns or suggestions.
At present we have number of staff who can speak languages other than English. Staff will always be happy to translate for parents when needed.

Social skills which will help them to make friends and to be able to relate to other adults and to cope with new situations. Emotional security so that they feel happy, safe and confident. The ability to communicate with children and adults and to make their own needs known.
Attendance and Punctuality:
We encourage the students to have full attendance and we also honor the children who get full attendance of the year. Any children and parents arriving after the school time will have to enter through the main entrance. A ‘late book’ will then have to be signed indicating the reason for being late.
KG is a place where children learn in play way method of teaching. They are moulded here to bring out their hidden talents. They are taught cursive writing, rhymes with action, phonic sound, sight words, EVS and conversation.
Primary & Higher Classes:
Here we have children around 1000. We have dedicated teachers to teach whole- heartedly. We follow 3 term method which includes Formative Assessment and Summative Assessment.
Curriculum, Record keeping and Assessment:
The school’s approach to the curriculum reflects that of the State curriculum. Tamil, English, Mathematics, Science and Social studies form the main part of the curriculum – these are known as the core subjects. The children also learn about computing, SUPW works, personality development and Physical education. These are known as foundation subjects. Religious education is also the part of the school curriculum.
We aim to plan as much of the curriculum taught, as possible to relate to real life experiences. The teachers plan the topic themes in detail to ensure that a broad and balanced curriculum is offered. The children’s knowledge and skills are developed through activity- based tasks, many of which are practical in nature.The children are taught in a variety of ways individually, in small groups and as a whole class.
The curriculum reflects the multi-cultural community served by the school and also the school’s commitment to equal opportunities. Many of our children speak languages in addition to English and these are used in a variety of ways to enrich the curriculum we have to offer.
Records are kept on all children to chart their progress and achievements. Regular assessments are made to help the teachers to identify the needs of the children and to plan the future needs.
For each child the staff will be aiming to keep a balance across seven areas of learning:
Personal, Social and Emotional development - involves helping the children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others; to inform positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.
Communication and language development – involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.
Physical development – involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement.
Literacy development - involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children are given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems and other written materials) to ignite their interest.
Mathematics - involves proving children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating the factors of Maths; and to describe shapes, space and measures.
Understanding the world – involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.
Expressive Art and Design - involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role- play, and design and technology.
However, all children learn children at different rate and some will reach their goals more easily than other children. The staff will understand this and will be experienced in assessing the children’s progress and planning ahead to ensure the activities are matched to each child’s needs.
Religious Education & Collective Worship:
“The aim of Religious Education is to learn about and learn from religious and spiritual insights, beliefs and practices.”
The whole curriculum contributes towards the moral spiritual education of the children. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education and they are advised to discuss this with the Head Teacher.
Collective worship in our school takes place within the context of a whole school/class assembly and we believe it plays a major part in establishing and promoting the ethos of our school. We acknowledge that the act collective worship makes significant contribution to the children’s moral and spiritual development. It should provide a context in which they can experience feelings such as awe, wonder, elation, appreciation, gratitude, respect and reverence.
We conduct teachers meet on every Friday to know the progress of the students. We also conduct Parent – Teachers Meet for all the 3 terms.
Educational trips that forms a part of a school curriculum are very valuable as they provide the students an opportunity of learning through travel especially to places they studies in their lessons and through this they get a chance to interact with their peers and teachers informally. By this we allow the children to explore and enjoy the adventure their age accordingly.

Note to Parents
Our request to the parents:
Always remember to praise and encourage your child when they are trying hard. Try to highlight the success they have achieved rather than any failures. Your child will benefit enormously if any extra help can be given out of school hours. Encourage recognition of numbers by looking at houses, cars, buses and around your home at such things as clocks. For early readers, point out writing on road signs, food packages, television, road names, books and magazines at home. Take time to talk to your child and help them to build up confidence. Encourage your child to have a go at writing. Homework is given out regularly and we suggest you can help your children in the following ways.

Everyone wants the children to be happy and do well at school but occasionally situations and misunderstandings do arise. We hope that we will be able to resolve most issues but there may be an occasion when you may wish to make complaint.
If any parent has a complaint about the school, we will ensure that we deal with it fairly. Please contact the school at the earliest. If you need to discuss the issues and clarify any misunderstandings, we will always try to ensure that any complaints are resolved satisfactorily.
