School Curriculum

This page provides an overview of our whole school curriculum. To see information regarding our RSE curriculum, click here.

Our children are happy at school because they enjoy their learning both inside and outside the classroom. We know that children learn in different ways and we use a variety of teaching strategies including whole class teaching, group work and individual support. Children learn not just from their teachers, but from other adults, other children across the school and their peers. They learn by listening, questioning and doing, working both individually and collaboratively.  Our curriculum helps to prepare our children for the 21st century world and also helps to promote British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs, encouraging everyone within our community to respect others. 

All pupils are taught in mixed-age classes - the organisation of classes and the mixing of year groups varies each year. Early Years and classes with KS1-aged pupils will be no larger than 30 pupils.

                                                                       

Phonics

Phonics is taught in KS1 and across the school where necessary. We follow the Sounds Write program. 

KS2 Residential visit

KS2 pupils will also encounter a diverse range of challenges, as they go on a week-long residential visit.

 

Our Curriculum – a little more information

Our small classes, enable us to tailor work closely to pupil need. We always try to group pupils by ability, rather than ‘year group’. In this way, we can ensure that pupils are both challenged and supported appropriately.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum across all years. We work hard to ensure that subjects are taught creatively, with as many opportunities as possible for real-life learning, in real-life contexts. Above all, we aim to make learning fun for our pupils.
