Curriculum statement

We design our curriculum carefully, using the National Curriculum 2014 document to help each child to achieve their best. In order to do this, we believe in creating a positive and secure environment in which children can learn and use a range of strategies to enable this, so that children work in groups, and in pairs, and individually. In this way, we encourage children to become more self-confident, mature and independent, whilst fostering the mutual respect and supporting peer discussion and debate.

Our children are taught a broad and balanced curriculum covering all areas of the national curriculum:

English, Maths, Science, Information and Communication Technology, History, Geography, Physical Education, Music, Art, Design Technology, Religious Education, PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizen ship Education.)

Children are also taught Spanish as part of our Modern Foreign Language Programme.

Where possible, we look for enrichment opportunities to support our teaching of the National Curriculum. These may take place in school time - through workshops, drama and performances from external providers - or as after-school clubs.
