Our school curriculum is founded on four basic principles which underline what we teach and the way we teach. They are:
- Broad – It introduces pupils to a wide range of knowledge, understanding and skills.
- Balanced – Each part of our curriculum is allocated sufficient time relevant to the children’s age and experience.
- Relevant – Subjects are taught in a way that relates to the children’s lives and experience, now and in the future.
- Differentiated – What and how the subjects are taught matches pupils’ individual needs, abilities and aptitudes. Children may be taught as a whole class, in smaller groups or on an individual basis.
We teach the curriculum content through an integrated, thematic approach. It is underpinned by the subjects of the National Curriculum and designed to maximise the links between subject skills and knowledge in an interesting and meaningful way.
