Our Learning

Our Curriculum   

We recognise that each child is an individual with specific needs, interests, experiences and abilities, and our staff go that extra mile to ensure that through effective provision of differentiated learning opportunities, each and every pupil achieves success.

Our curriculum is constantly evolving, following the direction of the pupils. Although we have a structured and robust framework in place, staff are actively encouraged to develop innovative ways to deepen learning and create a thirst for knowledge. Improving our provision is a constant priority and good ideas, from any source, including children and parents/carers, are warmly welcomed and often acted upon.  The long term curriculum overviews demonstrate the progression of skills and knowledge.  There may be times throughout an academic year when the long term plan topics may start earlier in the children's learning.

Developing well-rounded individuals who leave us ready for the next stage of their education and beyond is of the utmost importance; we work to develop ‘character’ through fostering and embedding dispositions such as resilience, perseverance and courage and personal values - such as honesty, kindness and loyalty.
