The curriculum we implement has been created and refined by all teachers. It is regularly reviewed and scrutinised in accordance with our Academy Improvement Plan, national developments and the needs of our community. Our curriculum plays a pivotal role in promoting a passion and commitment to lifelong learning.
The creative curriculum has been organised into integrated topics which meets the objectives of the National Curriculum. Opportunities for speaking and listening are utilised and pupils are skilled in work that requires collaboration. The use of computing is encouraged in all areas of the National Curriculum as it can enhance the learning experience of children. Our topic based approach enables children to make links between their learning and build effectively on prior knowledge.
The development of children’s character and their wellbeing sits at the heart of all our teaching and provision. For more details on this see our Health and Wellbeing section.
