Our curriculum is designed to inspire our children to learn and to create unique memories, often through the use of topics with exciting hooks and outcomes. It is rich, broad and balanced and makes the most of our beautiful and historic location. We encourage our children to be curious, to be resilient and to follow their dreams.
Our curriculum reflects our Whole School Values and is also underpinned by our Learning Powers. For more information follow this link to our school vision and values.
We draw on the family feel of our school, with its nurturing environment, to teach our children to be honest, respectful, responsible and kind. We also teach about leadership and all our children have opportunities to take up positions of responsibility before they leave us.
We know that children’s learning is strengthened immeasurably when we are able to work in close partnership with parents and carers. Curriculum evenings and workshops take place each year to provide more information. Additionally, our school has an "Open Door" policy; we warmly welcome questions and feedback about what children are learning through informal conversations with parents at the end of the school day.
We follow the National Curriculum for all subjects and we make use of some published schemes to support our planning.
