Learning

The Davenies Curriculum is independent and forward-thinking. By going beyond the National Curriculum and incorporating the best of the Independent Schools Examination Board syllabus, we can provide a bespoke curriculum that enables us to offer academic excellence alongside an extensive educational experience. Our enthusiastic, friendly and well-qualified staff deliver a broad and balanced education through a combination of traditional and modern teaching methods involving both class-based and specialist teaching.

Subjects

The Head of Department for each subject area ensures that an up-to-date and challenging curriculum is delivered to all Davenies pupils. Ongoing assessment is relevant and pupil progress is tracked to inform future teaching and learning goals.

At Davenies, we believe that the learning process must Engage, Inspire and Challenge every child that attends. Teaching and learning is supported by a wide range of resources and Co-Curricular Activities. The ethos and values that are inherent to the School support and enhance enthusiasm for lifelong learning and encourage independence of thought. The boys develop self-esteem, a wide range of knowledge, essential communication skills and the drive to enhance and excel in education.

Learning Support

Learning Support

Learning Support at Davenies is not only integral and cross-curricular, but also a whole-school resource that every boy benefits from.

Our small team of support teachers are not only specialists, but they have the additional expertise to enable them to adopt a whole-child approach and identify the underlying factors that may be preventing successful learning from taking place. Our support exists in the class, in small groups and, in some cases, on a one-to-one basis.

Identification of a boy’s strengths and difficulties is always a key factor for any of our teachers. They will identify, support and inform all involved so that continued learning can be a positive experience. We require assessment and intervention from additional experts occasionally, but, in such cases, we have trusted contacts to whom we can refer parents. External assessment reports are summarised and the information is shared with staff so that appropriate differentiation for additional learning can take place.

The Learning Support Department works closely with the English and Maths Departments to build key literacy and numeracy skills. It also works with Pastoral Heads to add a different perspective to matters since many things can affect a boy’s behaviour or learning in school. Our friendly Learning Support team provides expert, practical and morale-boosting support to the boys so that each child can learn and make exceptional progress.
