The Curriculum

Our school curriculum is base upon our school aims-

Work together, learn together, grow together

and our core values-

Responsibility; creativity; resilience; respect and spirituality.

Details of our aims and values and how these link to British Values can be found here.

Our curriculum builds upon the National Curriculum but is enriched to incorporate a wide range of social, cultural and spiritual activities.  We adopt a creative approach to teaching and provide opportunities for children to learn in a variety of ways, sometimes with children from other classes and sometimes with involvement in whole school topics. 

Much of our curriculum is planned around themes or topics that link subjects together in an interesting and exciting way.   For our school curriculum please click here for our infant topics and here for our junior topics.

 

We aim to ensure that all children develop high standards of literacy and numeracy as these are the building blocks of all teaching and learning.

Our English and Maths teaching is based upon the requirements of the national curriculum.  The National Curriculum programmes of study can be found here-

In our infant department the children are taught to read using a variety of reading schemes including Oxford Reading Tree, Phonics Bug & Collins Big Cat. Phonics teaching is based on Jolly Phonics and the Phonics Bug scheme.  We teach handwriting using a scheme called PenPals.
