The Active Programmes
The Active Approaches are a whole-school method of the teaching and learning of different elements of the primary curriculum, namely grammar (Active English), arithmetic and number (Active Number) and spelling (Active Spelling).
It is proven that learning gained through interacting with others, supports retention.Using images, actions and verbal reasoning the child’s learning develops using a spiral approach. Mnemonics, intended to assist the memory, help to develop “mastery”, providing a deepened understanding of the curriculum area. The Active Approaches are school led initiatives which have all be developed by teachers within schools and have had proven impact within both the L.E.A.D. schools and beyond. Moreover, research has been used at every development stage of the programmes and each approach remains aligned with the latest research including the current EEF guidance reports and educational recommendations. The approach is embedded in over 60 schools across the region and beyond with many of our schools sharing fantastic results and data with us thus demonstrating the impact it can have across a range of settings.
Open mornings will be taking place during 2021-22 so that schools may find out more about these approaches. These are FREE to schools, currently not using the approaches.
