Curriculum

We believe in providing an exciting and enriching curriculum for all of our children.  This includes opportunities to study and understand the world around us, both locally and globally. On each of the curriculum pages you will find examples of the topics taught across the school and a summary of the key learrning objectives for each of the core subjects from the National Curriculum 2014.

Our curriculum is built on the fundamental skills of learning which we refer to as the'Secrets of Success'.  We foster a culture where children develop into confident learners with the ability to apply their skills to any area of learning. Find out more about these 12 key skills by reading our 'Secrets of Success' booklet...

 

In Reception and at Key Stage 1, we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' document for phonics.  The school uses the phonics scheme 'Jolly Phonics' to support the teaching of phonics throughout the school.
