Our Curriculum

Caring - Supporting - Achieving

 

We aim to ensure that all pupils experience high quality and purposeful teaching and learning - encouraging and enabling all pupils to achieve their potential.


This includes:

  • delivery of the Foundation Stage and National Curriculum within a school curriculum which incorporates balance, breadth, challenge, coherence, relevance, equal opportunity, differentiation, continuity and progression.
  • the use of a range of teaching and learning strategies, technologies and resources.
  • development of investigative and independent skills and positive attitudes to learning with challenge and targets.
  • the promotion of high standards, success, excellence and enjoyment in all aspects and at all levels of learning.

We aim to develop a school which relates to and respects the immediate environment, the wider community and the world beyond.
  • developing an appreciation of past achievement and an understanding of the present world in preparation for life in the 21st century.
  • maintaining a school environment which is welcoming, stimulating, well-ordered, tidy, clean and safe.
  • developing a shared sense of respect and responsibility for all that belongs to our school and towards the people who work within it.
  • involvement of governors, parents, the local community and relevant outside agencies in the work of our school.
  • developing responsibility for one’s own actions, and to have awareness, appreciation and respect regarding cultural, religious and moral values of others.
  • encouraging and developing informed, independent decision-making in matters relating to the environment as well as to health, morality, belief and spirituality.
