Curriculum & Learning
Our curriculum aims to give each child the opportunity to gain experience in all areas of school learning.
We teach the national curriculum with a subject-based, cross-curricular approach. This means we teach the subjects within a ‘theme’ whenever it is practical. It helps generate an enthusiasm towards the work and links together the knowledge of different subjects whilst teaching the skills that primary aged children need to acquire.
We organise work to be done at home to supplement that done in school time, and ask, through our home/school agreement, for parents to support their children in these important tasks.
We have carefully planned learning programmes for Literacy and Numeracy. Long-term plans are developed on a two-year cycle, medium term plans are written covering each term in more detail, and short-term plans cover the day-to-day delivery of the lessons.
Religious Education is also part of our school curriculum, ensuring we foster a reflective response to the spiritual, moral and cultural challenges facing our children growing up in the modern world.

The context plan ensures that we meet our National Curriculum requirements as well as what we place importance on as a school.
The school also follows the Jigsaw scheme of work to support the delivery of PSHE and SRE. Click here to see an overview of the topics covered.
