The curriculum which we offer the children is a broad and balanced one. In each area of the curriculum we will be helping children acquire knowledge and skills as well as fostering a positive attitude to both their work and the general life of the school.
Our whole school planning ensures continuity and progression as children move throughout the school. We recognise the importance of having a curriculum that takes account of the needs of the children who learn through their experiences. "I do and I understand"
A variety of teaching styles are used to deliver the curriculum. We are particularly interested to help children’s preferred learning style – whether it is visual, auditory or kinesthetic. Class, group and individual teaching will be experienced as well as encouraging co-operative work. As Vygostsky says "What a child can do in co-operation today, she/he can do alone tomorrow." Lessons will begin with a whole class introduction, ending with a whole class plenary time, which will reinforce the teaching and learning objectives of the lesson. W.A.L.T. (What we are learning today) and W.I.L.F. (What I am looking for) notices will be seen in all classrooms.
The school follows the published requirements of the National Curriculum. The core subjects are English, Mathematics and Science and ICT. The foundation subjects are History, Geography, Design Technology, Art and Design, Music and Physical Education. We also follow Stockport's Agreed Syllabus for teaching Religious Education which teaches mainly about Christianity but includes teaching about Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism
