Our children follow a carefully planned curriculum which seeks to engage, challenge and inspire. It is underpinned by our core Christian values which provide a life-long code for behaviour and relationships; and our ‘Behaviours for Learning’ - the vital skills children need in order to learn successfully in our school and beyond. The curriculum complies fully with the Equality Act 2010 and SEND Regulations 2014.
Inspired by our Vision Statement which describes our desire to see ‘Every Child Flourishing’, our curriculum can be divided into three main areas:
Intellectual and physical development: we seek the highest possible outcomes for each child, inspired and enabled by a relevant and engaging curriculum.
Spiritual and emotional development: we actively support each child in developing loving, accepting and empathetic relationships with self and others, and help them to develop an ability to reflect deeply on matters of life and faith.
Social and moral development: we encourage our children to assume a respectful understanding of roles and responsibilities in our community and further afield, so that each can understand the positive contribution they can make.
The academic curriculum content is taken from the National Curriculum and other key documents such as the locally agreed syllabus for Religious Education. Each half-term has a key curriculum focus, into which many other subjects and lessons link, providing continuity and context for learning from the very earliest years in school. Our curriculum is enriched in all year groups by visits and visitors to school, and each half-termly unit culminates in a ‘Rich Learning Outcome’ – a highlight and celebration of learning, in which parents are often invited to share. Through a combination of academic study, memorable experiences and celebrations of learning we aim to ensure that each child flourishes and learns to love life and learning.
Curriculum Information Sheets are sent home to parents and carers at the beginning of each half-term. These outline the areas of study for the coming half-term and ways in which families can support and enrich learning. The current set of Curriculum Information Sheets are available on the year group pages which follow.
