Our curriculum is underpinned by the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum but it has been refined to equip our children to be more effective learners in the 21st century.
Our curriculum is ‘skills’ based and allows children to gain vital life skills which are needed in an ever-changing world and social climate.
We provide a thematic, topic based curriculum that is progressive and carefully sequenced. All the subjects are taught to all children and ‘topic’ learning allows the children to link their learning and see where subjects inter-relate. Much of the topic learning is also ‘child-driven’, where we ask the children to be part of the planning process. This in turn motivates and enthuses the children further as they are engaged in the learning process from the outset.
At the heart of the curriculum is the importance of teaching children to read and immersing them in deep, broad and rich vocabulary through selected quality texts. In turn they acquire and develop a range of skills in in both reading and writing.
Our curriculum is delivered by teachers and support staff who are caring, experienced, inspirational, and deeply committed to do their very best for all the children in their care. The curriculum is enriched by a wide range of additional activities which brings learning to life and makes it memorable.
Our curriculum enables children to be successful and they achieve high standards in all subjects.
Our pupils leave us as confident, resilient learners, well prepared for the next stage of their education and life.
