In Reception, the children follow the Foundation Stage curriculum which aims to develop their social, physical, spiritual and creative skills as well as promoting development emotionally and intellectually.
From Year 1, children are introduced to the National Curriculum which contains the core subjects of RE, Literacy, Numeracy, Science and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as well as the foundation subjects of History, Geography, Art, Design Technology (DT), Music and PE. In addition, we also teach Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE).
Staff make every effort to match work to pupils’ differing abilities – offering additional support where necessary and stretching the more able with challenging and open-ended tasks.
Staff use a wide range of teaching strategies to motivate, challenge and inspire children. We are actively involved in current educational research and always look for different approaches to fire the children’s imagination.
