Technology is an integral part of the modern world, so it is important that children have controlled access to it. Computers can be a valuable learning tool and are used across the curriculum for example researching information, presenting data or making a presentation. We have a range of laptop PC’s and tablets.
Children have use of the internet and educational computer packages in main school.
We are happy to talk to parents about their child’s progress whenever necessary. We hold regular parent consultations where children’s progress and targets are discussed. Parents are also very welcome to look at children’s work and share their learning journey records at any time. We also send home detailed and personal end of year school reports. However parents are welcome to make an additional appointment after school with their child’s teacher at any time in the school year.
The school is inspected by the Independent School Inspectorate. The last inspection was in 2017 when the school was found fully compliant in all areas. The next Education Quality Inspection will take place during 2020.
After Annan children go on with confidence to a range of different secondary schools in the local area. Children have been offered spaces at Lewes Old Grammar, Bedes, Mayfield Girls, Michael Hall and other independent schools. A significant number also go on to local comprehensive schools such as Priory, Uckfield, Ringmer and Chailey Schools.
Over the past year topics have included I believe, Time Tapestry, Space, Stories, Sound and Music.
Our important “Communicate” phase of the curriculum is when parents are invited in to look at children’s work. This might be an “Open classroom” event or an exhibition such as the “Annan Museum” the children set up at the end of the Spring Term.
