We aspire to equip each individual in our school to face life confidently and to realise his or her potential. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
In the Foundation Stage, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which covers the following areas of learning:
Key Stages 1 and 2 follow the National Curriculum which covers: English, mathematics, science, computing, design and technology, history, geography, art, music, physical education including swimming, computing and modern foreign languages. In addition to this we provide Religious Education in line with a locally agreed syllabus, SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development) and PSHE ( Personal, Social and Health Education).
Throughout lessons and daily school life we endeavour to develop the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We are keen that our pupils recognize how both the school’s values and their own role within implementing these reflect the wider values of the nation.
Children in each year group in Key Stage 1 and 2 study three ‘topics’ a year which have been planned very carefully in order to cover all curriculum content. We continually review our curriculum in order to keep abreast of new directives and innovations. In both Key Stage 1 and 2 the children have ‘Learning Journey’ books in which they capture a great deal of their learning – this allows them to build a clear understanding of themselves as learners and experts in a wide range of subjects as well as supporting them in developing specific knowledge, skills and understanding.
Our highly skilled staff are able to adopt and put into practice a range of teaching strategies, which include individual, group and whole class methods of teaching. The school is fortunate enough to be exceptionally well resourced and it is a combination of these things that support us in meeting the needs of each child in every way possible.
