Through the provision of a stimulating environment, children will develop to their full potential academically, socially and physically.

The framework for the children’s learning is provided by the National Curriculum which sets out the core subjects of Maths, English and Science along with ICT, PE, History, Geography, Design and Technology, Art, Music, Religious Education and MFL. We also teach Citizenship, Personal, Social and Health Education attaching great importance to the development of social skills. The curriculum encourages children to develop self-discipline and responsibility and to work collaboratively with others.

As well as teaching these lessons separately, we believe that a creative thematic curriculum where areas of learning are linked motivates children to learn more effectively and develop personal skills transferrable across lessons and useful in wider life.
