Our curriculum is structured using the key drivers of Community, Global Citizenship, Culture and Health and Well-being. These are then led through a focus of History, Geography and Science. The arts are interwoven throughout the curriculum journey in order to both support and enhance learning, whilst providing opportunities to become immersed in acquiring new knowledge, enjoy learning and to be nurtured as they grow. It is imperative for our children to be able to live and breathe our school motto to ‘Belong, Aspire, Succeed’.
Each unit and its content has been carefully selected and tied together so that our children are provided with a learning experience from EYFS through to Year 6 which builds on prior knowledge. All learning is connected and in each area of the curriculum the children have the opportunity to revisit what they already know, embed previous learning and gain new knowledge to progress and develop.
We hold our community very close to our hearts and believe that it is important for our children to both know and understand our place within it. We encourage as many community links as possible throughout our curriculum units but the final unit of each year group is specifically planned around learning about our community. This ranges from knowing who is important in our wider community to the rich history of our school and local people.
It is our ambition for our children to be well-rounded citizens of the future who will ultimately make our world a better place.
