Our curriculum has been designed to provide an enriching and challenging curriculum which exposes children to wider world issues and experiences.
Our school moto ‘Learn Grow and Achieve is underpinned by our 5 school values ‘resilience, aspiration, creativity, respect and kindness’ which feeds into every aspect of our school and community. These values form the basis of our curriculum with reading at its heart.
Our curriculum is designed to develop all of our children academically, socially, and emotionally. To equip them with the knowledge and skills they need and enable them to become happy, healthy and fulfilled, aspirational adults who actively engage with the world as global citizens regardless of background.
We offer a wide range of experiences to all children which empowers them, raises their self-esteem, and develops their wellbeing and cultural capital.
Central to our curriculum are Core Skills which underpin everything we do:
•To seek out and enjoy challenges
•To collaborate with others
•To show commitment and perseverance
•Assess themselves and others
•To speak clearly and convey ideas confidently
•To read and communicate ideas in writing efficiently and effectively
•To calculate efficiently and apply skills to problems
•To use new technologies confidently and purposefully
•To ask questions and extend their thinking
•To generate ideas and explore possibilities
•To overcome barriers by trying out alternatives or new solutions
•To connect ideas and experiences in inventive ways.
In designing learning experiences, we begin by identifying the curriculum content to be covered and the 'sticky knowledge' we wish children to acquire. This is taken from the 2014 National Curriculum.
We are committed to working in partnership with parents, Governors, and our local community to provide the best experiences we can to enhance the learning and development of each child.
Building a curriculum to support the learning and development of children is at the heart of what we do. Recent research is used to support this in school.
