Our Curriculum

All children are unique and individual. So are all schools. With this in mind, we have in place our own broad and balanced curriculum, which ensures coverage of statutory curriculum content, knowledge and skills; but also incorporates elements that reflect our context and the skills and experiences we want our children to develop and encounter during their time at our school.

We have a whole school emphasis on developing vocabulary, revisiting and reviewing learning so that it ‘sticks’, keeping tasks open-ended, and ‘quizzing’ to check gains in knowledge.

In order to engage and excite the children we organise our curriculum around high quality texts. We aim to nurture lifelong learning using Building Learning Power, Co-operative Learning and Life Skills as threads weaved throughout our curriculum. We also aim to promote ‘opportunity’, and ‘The Greats’.

​Children progress at different rates and have differing strengths and weaknesses. Our curriculum aims to strike a balance between the core skills (English and Maths) and the foundation subject skills (Science, History, Geography, Design and Technology, Computing, Physical Education, Religious Education, Art and Design, Music, Languages and Relationships & Health Education); in order that children’s talents can be exploited and applied more widely.

Phonics

A daily Phonic session is planned and delivered in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, following the Letters and Sounds programme. For those children who do not achieve the expected standard in the Year 1 Phonics Screening test, further Phonics support is put in place in Year 2 and children then retake the Screening test at the end of Year 2.
