The purpose of our curriculum is to give our children the foundations needed for a successful future in education and then employment. Our aim is for children to have the opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge outlined in the National Curriculum in ways that are fun, relevant and challenging. Each term we introduce a new whole school topic, designed to inspire both children and adults. A 'stunning start', a 'marvelous middle' and a 'fabulous finish' provide opportunities for something a little bit different, memorable and fun, and aimed at growing the children's cultural capital.
Health and well-being are an important part of our curriculum provision. We are fortunate to have extensive grounds, making outdoor learning a natural part of our children's daily experience.
Throughout the school we focus on key learning skills and learning behaviours that we have identified as an important part of our curriculum provision.
Our Curriculum Statement outlines in more detail our intent and how as a school we endeavour to meet our aims.
Our Long Term Curriculum map details the areas of learning for each subject area for each year group spread over two years in KS1 and four years in KS2.
