Our Curriculum

From Nursery through to Year 2, we make sure learning is fun!  We start from the children's own experiences and needs and plan exciting, hands on lessons.  We ensure children ask questions and are given time and support in finding their own answers to lifes many questions.

Key Stages

Nursery and Reception form the Early Years Foundation Stage.  The staff work closely together to ensure there is plenty of hands-on learning, providing firm foundations for when the children start school.

Years 1 and 2 form Key Stage One.  Staff plan lessons and experiences together, to provide continuity across classes and a gradual progression of skills.

Enrichments

We have updated our curriculum to provide lots of enrichment opportunities for our children.  These range from baking and opening their own cafe, to a role play wedding, a visit to the seaside, a torch-lit walk and making our own movies!  Also, we have lots of special themed days such as pirate day, super hero day, pyjamarama day and Victorian day!  We also have a range of visitors coming in and interesting visits out!

Information for parents

Keep an eye out for the flyers we send home each haf term.  They tell you about our curriculum, how you can be involved with your child's education and some important dates.

Our drivers

In school we have set four key drivers for our curriculum.  They are:

  • community
  • the environment
  • spiritual and moral
  • enterprise.

Through these drivers we aim to create confident individuals and responsible citizens.

The strengths

Anyone that comes into school can't help but notice our work on strengths - it underpins everything we do!  Children are taught to identify their own top strength and those of others, then how to apply them in a variety of learning and social situations.  The language of strengths is used by all children in school and can be seen on our lovely displays.
