Curriculum Vision

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.
