In implementing the School Curriculum, the Governors' principal intention is
to help all children to realise their potential. We aim to develop children into
rounded individuals through the provision of a broad and balanced curriculum.
Our aim is that through the provision of the best possible resources, each
child will be able to discover and develop any natural talents he/she has as
well as explore new skills.
The Nursery and Reception classes base their activities on the Curriculum
Guidance for the Foundation Stage. This encourages active involvement on
the part of the children to develop across a range of experiences. These are
grouped under the headings:
∙ Personal, Social and Emotional Development
∙ Communication, Language and Literacy
∙ Mathematical Development
∙ Knowledge and Understanding of the World
∙ Physical Development
∙ Creative Development
Foundation Stage experiences underpin all future learning, so we seek to
develop positive attitudes towards learning, the capacity to concentrate and
persist, and positive social skills. We also strive to foster a love of books, and
a curiosity about the world.
From the end of Reception through Year 6, the school follows the National
Curriculum which has three core subjects – English, Maths and Science. In
addition, the foundation subjects covered are Information and
Communication Technology (ICT), History, Geography, Design Technology,
Art, Music, and Physical Education. We use every opportunity to make links
across subjects and to develop children’s creativity, for example writing
skills are integrated into History, Geography, Religious Education and
Science. ICT and Mathematics will have applications and uses across the
National Curriculum Documents are available in school for perusal.
