Our curriculum

Our carefully designed creative curriculum provides the pupils with high quality learning experiences that prepare them both academically and socially to have successful futures.

Our school curriculum drivers: Responsibility, Aspirations, Independence, Communication and Curiosity run throughout the entire curriculum and are at the heart of all learning experiences in and outside of the classroom.

English, Maths, Science, RE, PE, and French are all taught as discrete subjects although links to other themes and subjects are made where appropriate. The remaining national curriculum subjects are taught through a creative topic themed approach.

Together with our expectation that teaching strives to always be excellent, our enquiry led curriculum and skilled staff have ensured that academic standards have significantly risen in recent years.

Progress exceeds national expectations with a particularly strong picture in mathematics.

Curriculum Enrichment

Our pupils enjoy and benefit from primary educational experts such as sports coaches, history en-actors, poets and theatre groups visiting our school and working with the children.

We also ensure that the children experience valuable educational visits linked to the curriculum. In Key Stage 2 the children have the opportunity to go on two residential visits to Cliffe House and Kingswood Activity Centre.
