Introduction

We offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced in content to develop the skills, attributes and knowledge of each pupil in our care.

We aim to prepare all our pupils for their future lives and encourage them to make a positive contribution to society. We have included the best of our local features to help the children develop their sense of their place in the world and visits play a large part of the curriculum we offer.

In Pre-Reception and Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and at Key Stage 1 and 2 we follow the National Curriculum (2014).  Our curriculum widens to include personal, social, health and economic education. The range of experiences we provide focus on developing the whole child and we actively look to make the curriculum relevant for our pupils, their needs and interests.

Our Team

Teaching and Support staff work together to plan the content of the Curriculum. Our Strategic & Development Committee of the Governing Body works along side us, and are actively involved in planning, training and monitoring our work, to ensure that we are meeting the children’s needs.

Staff meet each week and include curriculum review, scrutiny of work, subject knowledge and assessment as part of their regular schedule. As our teaching team is small we have responsibility for the areas listed below and share responsibility for other subjects.

The Strategic & Development Committee meet termly, chaired by  Rachel Lavery. They have a series of topics to discuss each year which are decided by our School Improvement Plan.

Pupils have a say in our curriculum too. In Class 1 the children plan their topic alongside staff to add their interests and viewpoint to our topics.

When you open up each Key Stage you will find out more about the staff who are working with your children.
