Curriculum Overview

Our school curriculum is underpinned by the values that we hold dear at our school. The curriculum is the means by which the school achieves its objective of educating children in the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need in order to lead fulfilling lives.

We value the way in which all children are unique, and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual child, as well as for people of all cultures.  We value the spiritual and moral development of each person, as well as their emotional, intellectual and physical development and growth.

We value the importance of each person in our community. We organise our curriculum so that we promote co-operation and understanding between all members of our community.

We value the rights enjoyed by each person in our society. We respect each child in our school for who they are, and we treat them with fairness and honesty. We aim to enable each person to be successful, and we provide equal opportunities for all the children in our school.

We value our environment, and we aim, through our curriculum, to teach respect for our world, and how we should care for it for future generations, as well as our own.

Early Years Foundation Stage - Reception Year
In their reception year the children enjoy learning through play within a well-planned and enabling environment, both indoors and out.  Every child is unique and their individual interests are recognised, supported and extended.  In this safe and secure environment, the foundations are laid for successful education - confidence, positive self-esteem, independence and social learning skills.  They explore, enjoy and learn the basic skills required for reading, writing and mathematics.

Key Stage 1 and 2
We aim to provide a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum.  The school has been involved in the development of an active, relevant and creative curriculum in line with the National Curriculum 2014.
