Curriculum Overview

In the Foundation Stage, we focus on experiences which help the children begin their school life successfully.  The Prime Areas are: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication and Language and Physical Development.

In Key Stage One we centre the children's learning and experiences around Local Issues.  We provide learning experiences for the children to develop their own knowledge of the local area whilst helping them think critically about their local area, beginning their journey of curiosity.

In Lower Key Stage Two we centre the children's learning and experiences around two areas: Hobbies and Interests and National Issues.  The children research and investigate these themselves, whilst learning the factual knowledge about them, whilst also learning about historical events which may impact upon their lives today.

In Upper Key Stage Two we centre the children's learning and experiences around two areas: Good Citizenship and International Issues.  The children learn about their responsibility to make a positive contribution to both their own lives and the wider community.

All of our teaching and learning centres around teaching our children the necessary skills they need to master our curriculum, with the longer term aim of preparing children for their journey through High School.
