Our curriculum, graded Outstanding by Ofsted, is very carefully planned to meet the needs of all of our pupils. A priority for learning is placed on high standards in reading, writing and numeracy, however, we also ensure we provide excellent teaching in IT skills, fitness and sporting ability and creative curriculum areas. All of our children access specialist PE coaching and receive swimming tuition they also have weekly French lessons taught by a native French speaking teacher and a Higher Level Teaching Assistant, specialist trained to deliver the French Curriculum and prepare our children for studying a second language at Secondary School. Our broad and rich curriculum is underpinned by the teaching of lifelong learning skills to enable our children to be successful independent learners who are prepared well for secondary education and beyond.
The school curriculum includes the following national curriculum subjects - English, Mathematics, Science, French, Geography, History, Art & Design, Design and Technology, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Music and Physical Education. Other statutory requirements are Religious Education and collective worship. We promote the children's spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. English and Mathematics are a priority but at the same time we aim to provide rich and varied activities and experiences within the whole of the curriculum, all taught in ways to motivate our learners.
Our links with local businesses support us in preparing pupils with the skills and aspiration to be successful lifelong learners,making their learning relevant byputting it into a real context. We have a growing national profile for our work with the business community and the impact this has on how well our children engage in their learning - they are genuinely excited!
