Our curriculum is exciting, fun, creative and provides a wealth of experiences that fuel a thirst for learning. We focus on the learning of skills and knowledge taught through challenging experiences both in and out of school. 

We want our children to be proud of themselves and their achievements, learning to speak positively about themselves and their peers and share their skills with others. We want them to have a clear understanding of how to improve their learning, what helps them to do well and to feel able to approach challenges with confidence, knowing that mistakes are part of their learning and should be celebrated as a way to get closer to reaching a solution.  

There is clear progression, where skills and knowledge grow over time and are revisited in subsequent years to ensure they are embedded. We know our children learn best through an active curriculum, where they learn through talk. We encourage talk as a means of developing new learning through all activities. Early reading follows the ‘Big Cat’ reading scheme and when children become more confident readers they have access to a wide variety of age appropriate reading materials. Phonic skills are taught through the ‘Little Wandle’ phonics scheme and ‘Big Cat’ readers.These successfully help the children to read and write new words. Reading for pleasure is encouraged and modelled by staff.

We have carefully planned it to cover the National Curriculum and learning that meets the needs of our pupils. Where valuable connections can be made, cross curricular links are used. However, we recognise that these work best when they are not forced, and therefore we know that they will not be used all of the time.   

Our curriculum allows children to discover who they are as learners, what they personally need to be able to do to learn effectively and to have a selection of different strategies that they know they can dip in and out of when faced with new learning and challenges.
