Curriculum:

Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2)

Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6)

All children follow a broad and balanced curriculum and staff are continually looking for new and exciting opportunities to widen their learning experiences, capturing their interests and making each day challenging and engaging.

Teaching the basic skills of literacy and numeracy is our first priority. Once these are secure we encourage pupils to use these skills independently in all aspects of school life. For example, pupils lead meetings, take on leadership roles and liaise with the wider community on a daily basis.

In addition to the core subjects we offer a rich and varied curriculum around the following subjects,

  • RE
  • ICT
  • Humanities – Geography and History
  • Physical Education
  • Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education
  • French
  • The Arts – Music, Art and Design Technology
  • Science

These subjects are taught individually with creative links to enhance learning in Music, Drama, Art and Design Technology. Pupils have many opportunities to develop higher order and thinking and questioning skills.

The children are encouraged to work individually, in a group or as a whole class. Co-operative teaching and learning styles are used. We believe that a good attitude to work, careful presentation and consistent effort are important for children to achieve their targets. We value the importance of parents’ involvement and the impact it has on their child’s learning and endeavour to form close working relationships.
