Curriculum

Curriculum statement

Our school curriculum is made up of a web of knowledge, skills, concepts, problem solving, enquiry and contextual connections. Through our curriculum and national expectations, to the enrichment of school trips, residentials and school clubs we weave meaningful contexts in order to enable our children with the tools and strategies to overcome the challenges of their next stages of learning and life. We aim for our children to enjoy, excel and be motivated and inspired in a wonderful learning environment.

Our children are engaged, happy and safe. This platform enables them to respond to the challenges of a 21st century education and life-long challenges. They are encouraged to respond to the moral, social and cultural expectations beyond the National Curriculum through tenacity, determination, positive mindsets and reflection. They debate the issues of the past, present and future with informed maturity and respect and understand the need for tolerance, stewardship, values and understanding. And we are very proud of them.
