Curriculum should help children make deeper and fuller understanding of their own experience.

Lilian Katz

The curriculum is arranged into topics which reflect the needs and interests of our children. The aim is to give each objective a meaningful context in which to learn. We strive to ensure that the children receive a broad and balanced diet, whilst still focussing upon the key components of reading, writing and maths, meeting age related expectations, as well as mastering skills, knowledge and understanding at a deeper level,

developing lifelong learning skills - curiosity, wonder, collaboration, organisation

gaining essential life skills - problem solving, communication, critical thinking, decision making, organisation and leadership

inspiring learners to achieve their dreams

Throughout the curriculum we also seek to instil our basic, core values, which align beautifully with the British Values of,


Rule of Law

Individual Liberty

Mutual Respect

Tolerance of differing Beliefs and Faiths

The curriculum is also used to help children explore their world and how to stay safe within it. This includes Personal, Social and Health Education, personal safety and E-Safety. Children in Y3 are taught about water safety through their swimming lessons.
