Moorfield children are taught in mixed ability classes with a maximum of 20 pupils per class. Within each class, individuals are taught according to their particular academic needs through effective differentiation allowing every child to move on from their level of ability. Differentiation may include, but is not limited to, ability groupings for certain lessons, targeted support from an additional adult (teaching assistant or teacher), peer support in mixed ability groups/pairs and appropriately levelled classwork and homework tasks. A mixture of learning styles is accommodated within lessons.
Personalised tasks help individuals with a specific weakness or strength offering support for those who find work difficult or extra stimulation for those children who are academically very able. Booster classes are provided where appropriate and one-to-one support from a specialist teacher is also available. Extension groups enable groups of capable learners to push themselves further.
