Our Curriculum

We encourage pupils to be curious and aspirational, ensuring that they develop independence and resilience and strive to achieve their best. Developing the extent and breadth of the curriculum to ensure our children develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve well is one of our school priorities.

We follow integrated topic themes which children find interesting and engaging and which ensure that the NC content is delivered effectively.

An increased provision for creative arts and physical activity ensures that all pupils, particularly those less-advantaged pupils, enjoy a curriculum full of opportunities so they can find and develop their interests and talents. These opportunities are extended in our extracurricular provision.

During their time in school, children’s personal, social and emotional well-being is valued to the same extent as their breadth of academic achievement, leading to a “well-rounded” child.

Phonics & Reading

The school teaches reading through a variety of methods. We follow RWI (Read write inc) as our main phonics approach to reading.
