The school is firmly committed to the thematic approach, where curricular areas are integrated into a widely embracing theme. We believe that this method of organising our curriculum provides the most relevance for children and helps the cross-fertilisation of knowledge and skills. However, in order to ensure coverage of the National Curriculum, aspects of some subjects may be taught discreetly.
Teachers are currently innovating the curriculum, ensuring that it is fit-for-purpose, engaging and pupil-led. The KS2 department now work under 7 Areas of Learning (AoLe) which is underpinned by three cross curricular responsibilities (Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Competence).
Where possible and suitable, first hand experiences are incorporated into school activities to enrich children's education.
Educational visits, field studies, use of the local environment and visiting artisans are all seen as experiences to complement and enrich our school curriculum and are regularly incorporated into class work.
