Curriculum

We provide an exciting learning environment with appropriate challenge for every child. All children are taught the subjects required by the National Curriculum and Religious Education.

Above all we want our children to enjoy their learning and believe that whenever possible they should take part in practical, creative and stimulating learning experiences.

These are our 5 core curriculum subjects:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • ICT
  • Religious Education


Our Foundation Subjects are:

  • History
  • Geography
  • D&T
  • Music
  • Art
  • PE
  • PSHCE
  • French (Y3 upwards)

 

Wherever possible we provide a stimulating approach to teaching and learning where the foundation subjects are taught through termly class topics, allowing the children the chance to become immersed in a creative curriculum. We further enhance each topic by inviting visitors to the school, planning trips and project weeks where appropriate. In addition to this Y4, Y5, and Y6 are offered the chance to take part in residential trips.

Each child also experiences Forest School (see Forest School section) each year in our extensive environmental area.
