Eleanor Smith School has the highest expectations of students. Many children who come to our school have missed out on their learning and there is no time to waste, so we try hard to ensure that the teaching and learning in our school is effective and the best it can be. We follow the national Curriculum and other national strategies. The normal curriculum of any school is also supplemented by activities that help the children with the things they find particularly difficult like managing their anger, playing games with other children, or coping better sitting in the classroom. All students are set targets which are regularly reviewed. Parents and schools are kept informed about the children’s progress both informally and formally.
