Curriculum Intent

We are proud to have a knowledge-based curriculum which promotes good attitudes to learning, high standards and high achievements for all children. The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school. 

Our curriculum has been designed to encompass knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live, and also the events that have shaped it in the past to make it what it is today. The topics have been designed to complement and build on one another with clear progression and links so that in subsequent year groups, children will be able to explore concepts deeper, applying their knowledge in different contexts. We are a school who strives for greatness and strongly believes that all children can achieve better than their best, whatever their starting points.

Our Aims

​​To promote a strong work ethic, high aspirations and build resilience so that all children believe they can achieve greatness.

  • To celebrate diversity and learn from each other through strong partnerships with parents, parish and the wider community.
  • To allow children to apply their knowledge and skills across the curriculum to secure new learning.
  • To prepare children for their next stage of education by giving them the requisite skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners. 

All subject leaders are given training and opportunities to keep developing their own subject knowledge, skills and understanding so they can support curriculum development and their colleagues throughout the school. 

A variety of cost-effective phase group and whole school learning opportunities enrich and develop the children’s learning. A carefully designed programme of after school clubs and events extend these opportunities further, helping to ensure that our children develop the knowledge and skills they need to excel, and become creative, responsible and curious citizens.
