Our intention is to provide children with a broader understanding of the world around them and the different cultures and beliefs which exist in this country and across the world. This is the vehicle that drives our whole school curriculum planning. Our school's creative curriculum has been put together carefully in consultation with the children, staff, parents and governors of the school. It is designed to be exciting and challenging for all our learners, regardless of their abilities or backgrounds and to provide all children with the knowledge and skills they need to enable them to succeed in their future lives and careers. We have designed a broad and balanced curriculum based on the National Curriculum with many additional elements that draw on the strengths of our staff team and the unique history, geography and creativity of our locality. All pupils will secure firm foundations in English and Mathematics and this underpins a growing excellence in other subjects. Our child-led and knowledge-based curriculum offers a broad range of subjects from Early Years through to Key Stage 2 (KS2). We believe in bringing learning to life, both indoors and out, with an emphasis on engaging and purposeful learning.
While emphasis is placed on children learning core skills of English and Maths, we place great value on developing the ‘whole child’ and provide an engaging programme of study in all curriculum areas that will prepare them for the next step in their education and for their future success.

We have regular parent meetings which are arranged throughout the academic year, focusing on specific curriculum areas. Letters regarding these meetings will be issued and information listed on the school newsletters.
