What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.
We have designed our curriculum around the needs of our pupils and our school community. We have a strong focus on developing children's skills in maths, english and computing, as well as their personal, social and thinking skills.
Teachers and children together plan topics which are interesting, engaging and cover National Curriculum objectives with lessons delivered in half-termly themes.
Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One develop their knowledge and understanding of the world, their communication skills and ability to understand numbers. They are taught phonics in three groups using the synthetic phonics system. We use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme amongst others and from Year 1 to Year 6 we use the 'Accelerated Reader' scheme.
Children develop and apply personal, social and emotional skills and learn to become more independent.
In Key Stage Two, the skills-based themes continue with children given increasing opportunities to develop their thinking, social and personal skills and further develop their independence. Writing is embedded throughout the curriculum with frequent opportunities to write for a variety of purposes. Maths is taught in ability groups across the key stage.
We have been awarded two Learning Excellence Good Practice Awards- one for our curriculum, and one for our approach to teaching maths in key stage two.
