Curriculum

September 2014 saw the implementation of a new Primary National Curriculum. This gave us the chance to introduce new topics and themes as well as developing and exploring existing areas of learning in greater depth. As a result, we have planned a curriculum which is creative, fun and focused upon skills. This is our ‘Creative Curriculum’.
Class teachers have planned a series of topic-based approaches to learning which are set of skills that are progressive. Wherever possible, the topic will be used to link together the core subjects such as English, Mathematics, Science and Art.
Linking the separate subjects under the umbrella of a topic; makes learning more exciting for our children and our teachers.
To add the ‘wow’ factor to these topics, each year group also plans a hands-on experience to introduce the topic or a really exciting visit to bring their learning to life. For example, Year 5 and 6 will visit the Cadbury World Exhibition to introduce the city of Chichen Itza and discover the Mayan myths and legends that claimed how humans were created.

We believe that the curriculum we offer is broad and balanced and that it:
  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
  • enables all pupils to develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
