“Inclusion is a strong focus of the school and the children spoke with enthusiasm about numerous ways in which everyone has the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of school life”.

Children in our EYFS unit receive bespoke learning. Staff tactfully use their knowledge of the children; the children's interests, experiences and identified next steps in learning; to ensure planning is personalised and meets the needs of the cohort and the individuals. High quality texts and resources, along with engaging activities, ensure our children are motivated, challenged and begin to develop their love of learning when they start their journey with us.
From Year 1 upwards, we ensure that every child has full access to the National Curriculum. There are 10 subjects taught at key Stage 1 and 11 subjects taught at KS2. The additional subject at KS2 is Modern Foreign Languages.
In addition to the National Curriculum, we also make sure that every child has access to a PSHCE lesson every week. Our ethos; which is built upon the Christian values of Love, Hope and Forgiveness; also incorporates a healthy body and mind and for this, we believe the teaching and practices of PSHCE are crucial.
We want our children to leave us having real life skills that will prepare them for their future and for the next stages of their life; so we encompass the Open Futures Curriculum and the skills of Grow it; Ask it; Film it and Cook it into our every day lessons.
We pride ourselves on being a diverse family and the teaching of British Values accompanied with the teaching of high quality RE and the Rights Respecting Schools agenda ensure that every child is aware of their uniqueness and their rights as an individual. Children are taught from a very early age about celebrating diversity and respecting others beliefs.
To make certain our children grow up safely; we teach them about keeping safe online; and making informed choices about lifestyles and relationships.
Furthermore, we equip our children with first aid skills to help them look after themselves as well as others.
Every child has a voice and there are currently three Pupil Voice groups that take the lead in making changes, and improving the school.
The guide below sets out the statutory National Curriculum. On each class page however; you will find additional information specific to that year group about what is taught and how you can help at home.
If you need any further assistance; please call in to see either myself or your child's class teacher.
