Our Curriculum

Teaching Learning Picture

We provide a stimulating learning environment that responds to each child’s needs and one that enables them to fulfil their potential. We offer a unique curriculum that is designed to address their spiritual, moral, cultural and social development as well as the academic. We value our learning to learn culture where we place an emphasis on involving children in their learning journey. The children have many opportunities to work from first-hand experience. We have a broad, balanced curriculum, which covers all areas of experience and one that develops concepts, skills, attitudes and knowledge. We want to develop the whole child and through this we expect our children, parents and carers to have high expectations to enable us to do this.

The government provides a curriculum that all schools have to follow. You can find more about the National Curriculum here.

Our Teaching and Learning Policy

Children learn through their total experience. Every moment they are in school plays a part in their education. This policy has been developed by staff to ensure our school creates an effective and well-managed learning environment in which the needs of each child can be met.

As a staff we aim to create an environment in which children can experience the joy of learning, be valued as important members of the school and belong to a community which celebrates achievement and effort. We seek to ensure that the children at our school are provided with high quality learning experiences that lead to a consistently high level of pupil achievement. We believe that children learn best when they:

  • are happy, interested and motivated
  • achieve success through stimulating tasks which challenge their ability
  • clearly understand the task
  • are aware of the learning they are doing and how they can improve to get to the next step.
  • are confident, feel secure and are aware of boundaries
