Each area of the curriculum is managed by a member of the teaching staff. The National Curriculum subjects are: English (including Literacy), Mathematics (Numeracy), Science, ICT, History, Geography, Music, Art and Design, PE and D&T (Design and Technology). We have adopted our own RE (Religious Education) curriculum and have also introduced Modern Foreign Language (French) from years 2 to 5.
We place a strong emphasis on the personal, social and health education of our pupils (PSHE). As a school, we are committed to involving our pupils fully in all aspects of school life, to reward and celebrate excellence and effort and to recognise achievement. We have a School Council and Eco Committee, made up of elected pupil representatives, who meet regularly to discuss issues affecting pupils.
'The school's curriculum is good overall.....' Good teaching was characterised by well-planned and organised learning, which was effectively matched to pupils' needs. Teachers ensured a brisk pace with clear learning objectives so that pupils knew what they were to learn.'
The Curriculum is thoroughly planned to meet the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum, and all teachers follow these plans when teaching their class.
'All teaching seen was satisfactory or better and much was at least good.'
