Curriculum

Our aim is to provide a broad, balanced and interesting curriculum to enable the children to acquire essential knowledge, concepts and skills. It is planned to be creative, motivating and exciting.

The Early Years curriculum for children in Reception classes incorporates the following areas of learning:

  • communication & language;
  • physical development;
  • personal,social and emotional development; 
  • literacy;
  • mathematical development; 
  • understanding of the world; 
  • expressive arts & design.
 
The curriculum for Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 are carefully planned to incorporate both whole class teaching and differentiated group work as appropriate. The following subjects are taught; English, Mathematics, Science, Music, PE, Computing, History, Geography, Art and Design, Design and Technology, Languages and Religious Education. Personal Social Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) over arches all curriculum areas.

Sometimes subjects will be taught separately but will often be linked through topics as part of a creative curriculum to make them more interesting and relevant.

Assemblies play an important part in the life of our school and are predominantly Christian but are inclusive and respectful of all faiths. Parents however have the right to withdraw their child from the teaching of Religious Education and from assemblies, if they so wish.
