We offer an exciting and engaging curriculum which meets the requirements of the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, as well as promoting our core Christian Values. We believe that every child is unique and special and therefore our curriculum is designed to ensure that every child can flourish and reach their true potential.
As a church school, we value spiritual and moral development and our curriculum is designed to prepare children for life in modern Britain, ensuring that our Christian values as well as fundamental British Values are lived out through the ethos and work of our school. Our curriculum is designed to promote respect for the views of each individual child, as well as for people of all cultures, backgrounds and beliefs.
Our curriculum, which is rich in knowledge and skills, promotes equality of opportunity for all children, including disadvantaged children and those with additional needs. The curriculum promotes cultural capital for all pupils through a wide variety of experiences, both within and beyond the school environment. We value the importance of good mental health and well-being, which is developed not just through Relationships and Health Education but also through a high focus on physical activity as well as through the general ethos of the school.
We believe that children learn effectively when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum will foster opportunities for our children to be inquisitive, develop a thirst for knowledge, a love of learning and to develop an open, lively and enquiring mind. It will encourage children to ask questions and become active in their own learning. Our curriculum will provide children with the knowledge and lifelong skills, which they need to become confident, independent and successful individuals. This will provide them with the essential foundations for the next stage of their educational journey and beyond, enabling each one of them ‘to live life in all its fullness.’
All curriculum areas are designed to build sequentially upon children’s existing knowledge and skills, making learning relevant and connected. They are designed to ensure that teaching and learning is inclusive and focused on individual pupil’s attainment, abilities, needs and learning styles, thereby enabling all of the children ‘to be the best they can be.’
