Learning & Teaching



Aristotle once said, "For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them”

We believe every child has the right to a rich and varied curriculum that challenges, inspires and promotes very high standards of achievement for all. Children are always watching their teachers and parents so we teach these attributes through example. Skills development is a major focus in the early years and primary level. Strong language skills & Numeric skills are the foundation of literacy development.

Teaching Strategies

The school maintains that outstanding teaching is characterised by a variety of teaching and learning styles. As such, teaching is based on a range of strategies including whole class, small group, paired and individual approaches. The weighting of these approaches is varied according to the composition of particular teaching groups, in order to best meet pupils’ individual needs. However, great emphasis is placed on working with individual children, at their own level.

Learning Out Side The Classroom

Learning outside of the classroom is recognised by MVVN School as an essential way of bringing teaching and learning alive across all areas of the curriculum. Our own experience and wider research tells us that learning in real and inspiring environments increases levels of achievement in academic, personal and social abilities. Bringing learning alive in a wide variety of settings increases students’ motivation and their ability to transfer learning from school to the wider world.

Behaviour skills

Good Discipline

We wish our school to be a happy, caring and well-ordered community and so a high standard of behaviour is expected. We aim to maintain this standard by being consistent in our expectations, setting a good example to the children, encouraging them to develop an awareness of others and teaching them to exercise self control, discipline and respect.

Home-School Communication

We believe communication between school and parents is extremely important. To aid this we have a school website which is updated weekly. www.mbiispatna.com. We believe that good relationships and close liaison between home and school will help the pupils to succeed. Parents and carers are encouraged to communicate with the school regularly to check or comment on their child’s progress, particularly if they have any concerns. A Home-School diary is used to aid communication.
