The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning experiences that challenge, stimulate and promote thinking and learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but involves a rich fabric of creative, cultural, sporting and intellectual opportunities which are broad, exciting, challenging and relevant, some of which are provided as extra curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’ or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people who can work and co-operate with others whilst developing knowledge and skills so that they can achieve their full potential.
Our curriculum is constantly evolving to ensure that we are responding to a rapidly developing world around us and that we are offering our children the best start to their lives in the 21st Century.
The curriculum has been divided into yearly cycles and we are currently on, ‘cycle 3’ as detailed in our long term plan topic plan. Each class has a topic web which outlines what the children will be learning each term, these can be found in the topic folder.
