Growing Independence: Key Stage 2

In Key Stage 2 (7–11 years), we place strong emphasis on encouraging children to pursue their own interests and studies. We work closely with pupils to encourage and develop their individual strengths. The children learn in a supportive environment: this enables them to work collaboratively, undertake research and build up project-based work.  We give more emphasis to the variety and complexity of homework that is set. There is a strong focus on encouraging independence and responsibility in preparing pupils for the next stage of their education. We know just how important it is for pupils to feel successful throughout their time at Badgemore. We have a very popular system of rewards to acknowledge and celebrate achievement, with special certificates awarded to individual pupils.
