Discovery Academy

MacIntyre Academies

Key Stage 2 

Children at Discovery often come from an unsettling school experience -  it could be the many changes in staff, a variety of approaches or being misunderstood as a young person. It is vital that they settle into school life with confidence and acquire the skills to show their true potential and academic abilities as they move up the years and closer to external assessments.

Academic progress is important; functional skills are vital but a sense of self worth and self knowledge are essential tools for future life. In Years 5 to 8 we see the need for a close nurturing feel to class teams.

Children are taught Food, Science and Technology from aged 9 upwards.

Pupils follow the national curriculum which is adapted to their appropriate needs and learning styles
