We aim to put children at the centre of their own learning and place great importance on nurturing skills and attitudes such as independence, resourcefulness, resilience and co-operation. We value academic success very highly and provide a rich and stimulating curriculum that challenges and stretches learners. We are rigorous in our approach and have high aspirations for all our children. We aim to provide children with the best possible learning environment and opportunities to enable them to fulfil their potential by developing their strengths and recognising where they need to improve further.
Many subjects are taught in a cross-curricular way and we provide opportunities for real and purposeful learning. Some lessons are delivered through a Critical Skills approach where the children work together on practical problems which have been posed as challenges.
The government are currently reviewing the curriculum taught in all schools and a new curriculum will be introduced in 2014. Until then all schools in England will continue to teach the existing National Curriculum. More information about subjects and what is taught can be found online using the link below.
