We are proud to say that our curriculum is personalised and tailor made to suit the needs of our school community

We have taken the most successful, innovative and pioneering educational practices and shaped them into a curriculum that promotes high quality, realistic experiences for our children.

Our children’s maths lessons are based upon the leading practices from around the world. We have adopted an investigative approach to our numeracy learning, giving children the opportunity to take ownership of their own learning.

Literacy lessons allow our children to hone their reading and writing skills through immersion in their class novel. Their classrooms are themed to support this and their work is carefully planned for engaging and realistic opportunities. This approach allows not only for the development of technical skills but high levels of enjoyment and creativity.

In Key Stage One we have a tailored provision consisting of Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds. This is supplemented with a carefully chosen selection of books for the children to enjoy and read at home.

We have adopted a cross curricular approach to our foundation subjects, making ours a very ‘Creative Curriculum’. Lessons are enriched with interactive and innovative activities through which key skills are taught. We carefully tailor these in order to meet the needs of all our children and the diversity of our community.
