Curriculum Information

Our school learning vision is based on the two key principles of:

1. Encouraging better learners. With the help of their teachers, children are able to achieve more and reach higher standards;

2. Developing lifelong learners who have the knowledge, skills and learning attributes that enable them to be resilient and adaptable. This will enable them to be equipped to deal with whatever challenges our rapidly changing world may hold for them.

We hold these principles as the keys to success in securing literate and numerate children. They will then be well equipped to meet the challenges in the next stage of their learning journey because they are resilient, resourceful, reflective, co-operative and independent learners.

Our curriculum vision has the development of literacy and numeracy at its core, alongside developing the attributes for children to be good learners, as these are the essential life skills for every child to be able to access future learning. Our children learn best through practical 'hands on' learning opportunities; these enable them to experience learning in a meaningful way that reflects their interest and needs. We tailor learning to provide children with opportunities to develop skills and explore concepts. These will allow them to build their knowledge and understanding through topics that will capture their interest and stimulate their imagination.

Our wider curriculum is skills based and, as such, we aim to involve the children in planning topics and themes of study so that their learning reflects their interests, which motivates them to learn.

Children come to our school to experience being a successful learner. Each and every one has an entitlement to:

At no less than age-appropriate levels, and to be inspired and challenged to secure high standards.

The core philosophy which underpins our curriculum provision is that in order to empower children as learners they must be taught about how they learn; they must understand and apply skills and strategies which bring about optimum learning. We recognise it as our duty to keep abreast of current educational research, as well as national and local incentives, in order to keep our practice relevant and at its best. Our school focus for continuing improvement will be documented in our School Plan.

In addition to the core elements above we recognise the importance of offering a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities for children to develop creative and sporting skills, as well as knowledge and understanding in French, RE, PSHE, History and Geography.
