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.

Great emphasis is placed on learning the basic skills of English, Communication and Maths.
