All our pupils follow the programmes of study for each subject of the National Curriculum. At the centre of the curriculum are the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. English includes Speaking & Listening, Reading, Writing, Spelling and Handwriting. We follow the National Strategies for Literacy and Numeracy.
We have good modern computer facilities. Each class has an interactive whiteboard with a data projector and all pupils have access to ICT equipment in the classroom. All computers have networked internet access. ICT provision is reviewed and upgraded annually. OFSTED commented on the effective use of ICT in school.
The foundation subjects of the National Curriculum are Design Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Geography, History, Art, Music and Physical Education. We follow the Durham Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.
We believe that education is about developing the whole child and we aim to develop the spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of each child as well as teaching the skills and knowledge of the National Curriculum. We are also aware of the 5 key outcomes of Every Child Matters and ensure that our pupils develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes to meet these outcomes.
