Teaching & Learning

Encouraging children to reach their full potential is a main drive for all staff here at Havelock Primary School. To ensure high standards of learning we have set high learning expectations for all year groups in all curriculum areas.

Creating vibrant a learning environment and encouraging success for our pupils is very important to us here at Havelock Primary school. We therefore endeavour maintain high expectations for behaviour and provision for all of our learners.

As a school, we are committed to ensuring that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils, in particular ensuring any gaps between the attainment of vulnerable pupils and that of other pupils is narrowed and ultimately closed.
