Key Information‎ > ‎


At Mersea Island School we believe children learn best through an engaging and creative approach to the curriculum.  We actively seek opportunities for learning beyond the classroom and are very lucky to have
such an amazing setting, with a wealth of learning opportunities on our doorstep.  We aim to develop our pupils' knowledge, skills and understanding by encouraging them to make links with their learning  in a range of 
different contexts.  We take great pride in ensuring our pupils are equipped and ready to face the challenges ahead of them and as polite, tolerant, caring  and respectful citizens in the wider community.

The school uses a wide range of books to teach reading with an emphasis on enjoyment of books and encouraging children to read widely. Our 'core' scheme is 'Oxford reading Tree'.

Phonics are taught across the curriculum to support children in developing this key reading skill. We use Optima Reading as our phonics resource.

Mathematics themes are threaded through the themes as well as through our daily maths teaching, we follow the White Rose curriculum and teach through a mastery appraoch.
