We aim to create a caring, secure environment where everyone will work happily together.
We believe that children should be able to read, write, spell and compute confidently. They need to learn the basics and learn them well. Children should be able to use these skills and apply them in a variety of situations.
We also believe that children should enjoy the process. Throughout the curriculum we try to allow the children to really experience their learning, through visitors, visits and special themed days.
We aim at all times to match this learning experience to the needs of individual children to produce the best results.
The National Curriculum is followed by all children.
The National Curriculum is made up of core subjects and foundation subjects. It contains guidelines and prescribes skills and concepts that children are entitled to be taught.
The core subjects are English, Science and Mathematics, the foundation subjects are History, Geography, Music, Art, Technology, Information Technology and Physical Education. We also follow the Devon Agreed Syllabus for RE.
There are times when these subjects are taught jointly under a theme to allow the children to immerse themselves within a topic.
