Curriculum

Our Curriculum is designed to encourage all our children to be the best they can be.  We support and supplement the delivery of the national curriculum, by providing a bespoke enquiry led context for learning, which provides:

 

  • Meaningful links in learning following a theme based approach

  • Broad and balance coverage across a range of subjects

  • Purposeful experiences that bring learning alive through visits and visitors

  • Opportunities to respond to the needs and interests of our pupils

  • a local national, international dimension

  • a response to the continually evolving educational perspective

 

We intend our curriculum to develop the whole child by encouraging the attitudes for learning that are displayed through:

 

  • A resilience and resourcefulness in learning, where all children are confident to make mistakes and  try new approaches

  •  An active contribution in lessons, by posing questions, evaluating their findings and sharing resources, ideas and thoughts

  • Respect and consideration towards others and  the learning environment

  • Working happily and productively on their own, or with wider pupil groups

 

Through our school curriculum we prioritize the skills of:

 

  • Communication

  • Literacy

  • Numeracy  

  • Enquiry

  • Information Technology

 

We firmly believe that these skills and attitudes will equip our children for lifelong learning in the 21stcentury and prepare them to make a positive contribution to society.
