The curriculum is the total of all the learning experiences provided by the school for your child. We aim to provide a broad, balanced curriculum at all stages of your child’s development through which your child will be able to reach their full potential and develop their individual talents, interests and skills.
We use a thematic approach to make links between different subjects as we believe that this makes learning relevant and enjoyable. We also use the local environment and educational visits to enhance the children’s engagement and understanding. We are committed to developing children’s skills for learning alongside personal and social skills.
The themed approach to our curriculum enables many of the subjects in the national curriculum programmes of study (known as Foundation Subjects) to be delivered in an engaging and challenging context where pupils can understand their relevance.
Each class teaches a bi-annual curriculum to ensure coverage. For Class 1, please see the EYFS page. The current themes for classes 2, 3 and 4 can be viewed by clicking the links below:
