CHILDRENS EDUCATION

ORGANISATION

Pupils are placed in classes largely based on attainment; each child is given an assessment test usually upon joining the school. This assessment consists of English and Maths papers. As pupils progress other subjects are introduced. All pupils follow clear schemes of work and regular assessments are made of their progress.

Parents/carers are kept fully informed of their childrenís progress through teachers. First Fruits Saturday school is big enough to provide a range of subjects, yet small enough to care.

SOCIAL EDUCATION / PASTORAL CARE

All pupils whatever their age participate in social education; the programme is structured to be relevant. Confidence building, respect for each other, parents/ carers and the family are covered. A caring school promotes the welfare of every young person. The pastoral system at first Fruits Saturday School underpins the academic work of the school, and is a strong well developed feature of the school.

ATTENDANCE

Regular attendance and punctuality is an essential element in achieving a sound education, and we ask that every effort is made in this area. If your child is unwell please telephone the director Michael on 07718144163 or 07952443030.

HOME WORK

Home work is an important part of every pupilís education, and we ask that every effort is made to provide a quiet area in which home work can be completed.

LIBRARY

The library is open all day, and a good selection of books, CD -Roms and other resources are to be found. At the school PCís are available for pupils and staff to use throughout the day. There is a photocopier and we can also offer, for a reasonable cost laminating up to A3 size. This use of equipment can be made available to parent/ carers subject to booking arrangements. We are always on the lookout for new books if you or someone you know has some they would like to donate, please feel free to do so.

ASSEMBLIES

Assemblies are held from time to time and contain a moral based on Christian principles. These usually last for about 10 mins.
