We value
  • The contribution every child brings to the life of the school irrespective of ability, gender or background.
  • The resources that the community provides and regard the school as a resource for the wider community.
  • A partnership with parents in the education of their children based on trust and mutual understanding.
We aim to develop
  • Self-confidence, self esteem and a desire to learn.
  • Independent learners who have a positive attitude to learning.
  • An awareness of rights and responsibilities.
  • Self-reliance and self-discipline.
  • The ability to form relationships based on tolerance and respect for others in order to
  • achieve high standards of behaviour.
We aim to provide
  • A stimulating, purposeful environment where there are high expectations of both teaching and learning and where children are well motivated to learn.
  • A broad and balanced curriculum which meets the needs of all children.
  • Clear communication between home and school to foster understanding.
  • A safe, healthy environment where everyone feels happy and secure.
  • A differentiated curriculum which encourages every pupil to achieve their full potential and ensure that all pupils have quality of access and opportunity regardless of gender, race, creed, physical or academic ability or social background.
  • An environment where pupils can examine their own spiritual development and give opportunities to acquire and discuss personal values and beliefs.


Our curriculum is carefully planned by staff and is based on the National Curriculum as laid down by the Education Reform Act (1988), and revised by subsequent legislation, which lists subjects to be taught and the essential core of knowledge / skills making up those subjects.

Children work individually, in groups or as a class and we believe that co-operation and teamwork are an integral part of the work. We ensure that all lessons delivered take the needs and aptitude of each child into account.

Our curriculum aims...

  • to provide a stimulating, happy, friendly environment which is organised, structured, purposeful and secure.
  • to develop children’s natural curiosity, foster a desire to learn, build self-confidence and increase respect for self, others and the environment.
  • to provide activities that allow skills to be practiced, knowledge to be acquired and success achieved.
  • for children to be self-reliant, self-disciplined, able to co-operate and form relationships, laying the foundations for their adult life.

The Foundation Stage
In the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) work is planned according to Early Learning Goals, in areas of learning such as: Physical, Social and Emotional Development; Mathematics; Communication, Language and Literacy; Creative Development; Knowledge and Understanding of the World and Physical Development.

The Foundation Stage follow a thematic approach and explore a topic each half term through structured play activities, creative work, stories, music, conversation, displays and trips. Activities built around the topic provide social, literacy, reading, observational and mathematical experiences.

We begin to create a record of achievement, progress and skills for each child which remains with him / her throughout their school life.

National Curriculum records begin in Year 1 and continue throughout school. Formal assessments are carried out each year in order to monitor each child’s progress and needs of the individual.

Key Stage 1 and 2
Literacy and Numeracy are taught daily. Science, Religious Education, Physical Education, Music, 
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) are also taught every week. Foundation subjects such as History, Geography, Design Technology and Art are often taught in blocks across the term. Curriculum subjects are integrated in order to form links between subjects and give meaning to children’s learning.

Planning the Curriculum

Planning for the delivery of the curriculum is complex but in simple terms it is a three-stage process - (1) long, (2) medium and (3) short term.

  1. The choice of themes, which enable the various Attainment Targets and Programmes of Study in a number of subjects to be taught, is carried out in conjunction with all staff so that continuity and progression between year groups is planned for and implemented.
  2. The breaking down of the scheme of work into termly and half-termly plans so that logical progression can be followed and resources gathered. 
  3. A detailed weekly plan outlines the resources and methods needed to make sure the children’s learning is managed effectively.
