As part of the School’s commitment to personalised learning we have devised some small group provision to help children improve their skills for learning.


The Penguins aim to improve children’s looking, listening and concentration skills using activities that promote the use of spoken language and teamworking. Personal, social and emotional development is nurtured through activities like gardening, baking and team games.


Teachers and parents have commented that after children have worked in the Penguins their independence and confidence have increased, enabling them to learn more successfully. Achievement is recognised and celebrated with star of the week awards and superstar badges.


The carefully chosen children who take part are called The Penguins at the Infants and the rockets at the Juniors.
