The purpose of the curriculum is to help all pupils realise their full potential.
Our aim is to provide a high quality level of learning for children of all abilities.
We strive to offer a broad, balanced, enjoyable yet challenging curriculum, giving equal opportunity to children from all backgrounds. In doing this we plan to cater for those with high academic ability as well as pupils who need learning support.
The main part of the school curriculum follows the requirements set out in the programmes of Study of the National Curriculum.
This includes the development of Speaking and Listening, Phonics, Drama, Reading, Writing, Spelling Grammar and Handwriting.
This includes the development of skills and concepts in number and number calculations, measurement, space and shape relationships problem solving, logic, data handling and the use of calculators.
The above subjects are taught separately in groups arranged according to ability, but are also incorporated into work across the curriculum.
Science, Computing, History, Geography, Technology, Art, Music, Physical Education and Religious Education.
The subjects are taught mainly as part of a theme or topic, but are also reinforced on occasion as separate subjects.
Care is taken, particularly in the core subject of Science, to ensure that the requirements of the Programmes of Study in the National Curriculum are met.
This includes drugs education and Governor approved sex education. There is a strong emphasis on healthy life choices.
This is generally taught as part of science based topic work following National Curriculum Programmes of Study but is also supplemented by support from a member of the Local Health Authority for older junior children.
