"Learning is not just about gaining knowledge and understanding, it’s being able to apply learning to real life situations"
Opened in 2008, The Flitch Green Academy is a one and a half form entry primary school situated in rural Essex. At Flitch Green students use the right instrument for the task set, which could be an ipad, a pencil or paint brush. The school’s philosophy is that learning is not just about gaining knowledge and understanding— it’s that you need to be able to apply learning to real life situations. Flitch Green also ensure children develop real life skills, to fully prepare them for their future lives.
"The Flitch Green Academy have been working with Polka Dot Planning for the last 5 years, where they have provided an excellent service in organising groups of educators to visit our school. They work in partnership with our school and, without fail, logistics are planned well in advance of the visits and communicated clearly with . All of the Polka Dot staff are friendly and knowledgable, and always put the needs of the school first. Working in partnership with Polka Dot has allowed us to share our school with many educators from across Europe, which has clear benefits for our children and staff. Finally, Polka Dot really understand schools and always work closely with us to make sure visits run smoothly and do not disrupt the school day and children's learning."
