Curriculum statement


We believe that our children deserve a curriculum that is inspiring, creative and provides them opportunities to achieve their full potential.

We work hard to provide learning experiences that are engaging, enjoyable and challenging.  Basic skills are driven through all curriculum subjects.

Teachers plan sequences of lessons using prior learning and new skills and knowledge. The curriculum is constantly reviewed to ensure it meets our children needs.

We celebrate the diversity of all children and cultures and we promote spiritual, moral, social, cultural development and modern British values.

Our school motto ‘Aiming High’ reflects the standard we expect for all learners.
