Curriculum

 

Our school provides all children with a broad and balanced curriculum which is appropriate to their age and ability. The curriculum is designed to develop children's knowledge and understanding, physical and motor skills and to promote their personal, spiritual, cultural and moral development.

The school follows the New National Curriculum and with an emphasis on acquisition of basic skills in core subjects e.g. reading , writing, numeracy and ICT, and the enjoyment and understanding of foundation subjects History, Geography, Art, Music, Design Technology and PE. RE is taught throughout the school and alongside PSHE, forms an important part of our curriculum.

Our Curriculum is underpinned by the exciting opportunities provided beyond the classroom.  We firmly believe that in order for children to develop a love of learning this must be enhanced  with an exciting and challenging curriculum outside of the classroom walls.

In Foundation Stage the children work towards the Early Learning Goals through the Prime and Specific areas in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework 2012.
