About Year 6
Your child has finally reached the last year of their primary school education and will soon be looking forward to a new challenge of secondary school. This means Year 6 is a very important year for your child, both academically and socially.
In Year 6 we believe that children should be taught to become more independent and mature in their attitude towards their education. We encourage this by giving Year 6 pupils responsibilities, including helping teachers and younger pupils around the school.
We want your child to enjoy their learning and value creativity. We are always mindful of individual strengths and abilities.
We strongly promote a growth mindset and an aspirational outlook where the children celebrate and learn from their mistakes and are shown a range of prospects and jobs for their future. We want the children to always feel supported and that they are capable of whatever they wish in the future, so long as they work hard and are willing to learn from their mistakes.
