Our curriculum is designed to introduce our pupils to the best that has been thought and said, and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement. We aim to ensure your child will develop skills and knowledge across all the subject disciplines through depth and breadth, with a focus on our local context. We have built in progression and continuity across all curriculum areas so that children are taught key skills and then given the opportunity to apply them. Our curriculum reflects the diversity of our society and celebrates a rich multi-cultural history of our world.
We have three 'Big Ideas' that we believe children should understand by the time they are eleven:
- We are a 'values based' school: our values determine our choices and behaviours and enable our culture to be challenging and supportive, creating confident young people.
- We serve our community both locally and internationally. Our children will understand the interconnectedness and responsibilities we have to make our world the best it can be for everyone.
- We believe in the power of oracy. Young people can make a positive difference and should feel empowered.
Our curriculum is designed to ensure these ideas are built on and strengthened.
