All teachers at Holy Cross and All Saints have high expectations of all our children and they create a positive and supportive environment for all children. When planning and teaching the National Curriculum our teachers set suitable learning challenges, respond to pupils’ diverse learning needs and overcome potential barriers to learning and assessment.
All pupils have the opportunity to experience success in learning and achieve as high a standard as possible. Teaching and learning opportunities are adapted to the needs of children to allow all children to access tasks.
For pupils with particular learning and assessment requirements, teachers support individuals and groups to enable them to participate fully in curriculum and assessment activities.
Children with disabilities

Teachers take action to ensure pupils with disabilities are able to participate as fully and effectively as possible in the National Curriculum and statutory assessment arrangements. Potential areas of difficulty are identified and addressed at the outset, without the need for disapplication. Teachers:
At our school children are taught in mixed ability classes. Within all lessons, work is adapted if necessary to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to access learning. Pupils are encouraged to record their work in a way that suits their learning style. Teachers use a variety of teaching methods to suit a range of learning styles.
