We are delighted with our SIAMs Report, which judges our school as outstanding in all areas and has no areas for improvement! Well done to all our children, staff, parents and governors for making our school an outstanding place to learn!

'The love, care and security associated with Christian values enable the children to excel in academic achievement and in their own overall development. The impact of this is seen in exceptionally high results in all pupils'.
'School places great emphasis on Christian values where staff and children respect each other and are nurtured to reach their full potential'.
'All the teachers know the children well, as a family.'
'Children's behaviour is excellent and they are developing into well rounded individuals in their care of each other'
'Parents speak highly of the school's pastoral and inclusive care of all pupils which is the result of the staff's commitment to the Christian ethos'
Religious Education at Howick
Through a reflective and progressive curriculum we aim to excite, promote enquiry and embed knowledge. In RE we want our learners to be excited by their learning journey. We want them to question and have awe and wonder; whilst being aware that we may not always have the answers in RE. Learners should build on their existing knowledge, making links and developing their understanding and knowledge.
We endeavour to motivate our learners and equip them with the skills to be confident, independent and resilient. We focus on the quest for learning in RE and understand that it is a joint journey. We encourage and facilitate learners to question, explore and share confidently. We want them to have the freedom to be independent with their learning as well as their thoughts and beliefs.
Children of different faiths should feel involved, happy and confident to contribute to all areas of RE and teachers ensure that when teaching RE, the content and delivery is appropriate and relevant for all learners. Children are encouraged to share and celebrate their faith and beliefs and the environment for this is safe and welcoming.
Our Christian values underpin our efforts and achievements and we are inspired in our mission by our faith that “I can do all this through him who gives me strength” (Phillippians 4:13)
To celebrate Easter in Class 2, the children have made their own El-Salvador Crosses containing pictures that remind them of Easter time. They also looked at the story of Palm Sunday and decorated an Easter biscuit. Happy Easter everyone!
Class 4 have been reflecting on the events of Holy Week.
