Curriculum

We are currently reviewing our Curriculum content, focusing on developing a curriculum that will ensure our children build up a body of knowledge that will help them succeed through the rest of their lives.

We have reviewed and renewed our Vision and Values, which directs our thinking and is at the heart of our policies and practices and will drive our curriculum intent.

Our School Motto

Belong, Enjoy, Aim high, Respect

Our School Vision

We believe that:

  • Every child should feel valued, safe and happy in our school (Belong)
  • Every child learns best when the curriculum is fun, engaging and creative (Enjoy)
  • Every child should be encouraged to develop to their full potential (Aim high)
  • Every child should be taught to have due regard for the feelings, wishes and rights of other (Respect)

We aim to achieve this vision by working together as a team – staff, parents, governors and the local community to:

  • Create a safe and nurturing environment where pupils emotional well-being is supported and sense of self-worth is developed
  • Promote a high standard of behaviour and an atmosphere where all members of the school are valued as individuals
  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is fun, hands on, creative and personalised to our children that will stimulate a natural curiosity about the world around us
  • Provide high quality teaching and learning which inspires, motivates and engages all children, developing a love of learning
  • Promote and celebrate effort and engagement developing self-motivated learners in order to produce confident pupils unafraid to take risks in the pursuit of ambitious goals
  • Focus on developing the moral values of being caring and showing integrity and promoting the value of mutual respect for others’ beliefs, opinions, actions and authority, in order to develop ‘well rounded’, caring and responsible citizens
