Our Curriculum is delivered through:
- Teaching the programmes of Study from 2014 National Curriculum
- Educational Visits including residential trips
- Forest School – we are extremely fortunate to have our own forest and a trained Forest School leader
- After school clubs which are run by our staff and are free.
- Opportunities for children to take the lead: chaplaincy team, house captains and prefects
- Throughout the year, children are encouraged to raise money for local and global causes
- Visitors come into school to enhance the learning taking place by sharing their experience and knowledge
Through our planned activities, children have opportunities to be creative, to be physically active and to be academically challenged. Our curriculum is enriched by our strong ethos based on respect for ourselves, others, the environment, equality and a sense of wonder at the world we live in.
Our school curriculum reflects the requirements to provide a broad and balanced curriculum as per the Academies Act 2010, and the National Curriculum programmes of study which we have chosen to follow.
It also reflects requirements for inclusion and equality as set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014 and Equality Act 2010, and refers to curriculum-related expectations of governing boards set out in the Department for Education’s Governance Handbook.
