What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.

 

We are excited to be developing a new approach to the National Curriculum among our school community and are committed to encouraging our children to be outstanding in all that they do. Through our cross-curricular topic-based approach to learning we aim to develop successful, confident, responsible and effective learners. We promote learning across an active and engaging curriculum through the belief that all our pupils are entitled to high-quality teaching and learning that will enable them to lead happy and fulfilling lives in the 21st century world. We strive to deliver an outstanding curriculum in order that all our pupils:

 

  • Are challenged to achieve their true potential through active thinking and learning.
  • Enjoy, thrive and leave our school with the Habits of Mind and independent learning skills that will enable them to progress successfully to a wide range of further educational experiences and life options.
  • Develop effective lifelong learning skills.
 

Personal Development

 

Our curriculum and co-curricular activities are designed to reflect the range of individual abilities and interests of our children. Through regular and careful assessment for learning and summative assessment, teachers develop their knowledge and understanding of each child in order that they are able to provide a personalised learning plan for all.

 

Personal targets help all of our children work  towards clear goals which are also shared with parents regularly. We evaluate and provide effective learning for all children and where required, differentiate the curriculum to provide support and challenge including more challenging work for more able students, and supportive focus groups, designed by specialist staff, for those that are identified as needing extra help in Maths and English, including those with special educational needs.

 

High Standards

 

We set high standards of learning and behaviour and believe that our approach to behaviour for learning, founded in positive Habits of Mind is key to success. We value the kind, friendly and nurturing environment we have created, where staff and pupils alike care for each other and support each other in their lifelong learning journey.

 

Our community and charitable activities, locally, nationally and internationally, help children to develop an awareness of their place in the world. Our links with school abroad and charities such as the Lunchbowl Network provide an opportunity for cultural exchange.

 

This curriculum is continually monitored and adapted in order to meet the needs of our pupils, make the most of our resources and meet school-based and government-driven standards.
