Our curriculum is constructed to give all pupils the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life, in addition to developing every individual’s love of learning. The curriculum is designed to prepare pupils at the school for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in the present and later life. Our curriculum also promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils. We use our daily acts of worship to do this, in addition to proting the Gospel values, British values and citizenship.


The curriculum is adapted and developed to be ambitious and meet the needs of pupils with SEND, developing their knowledge, skills and abilities to apply what they know and
can do with increasing fluency and independence.


The work given enables pupils, over time and across the school, to consistently achieve the aims of the curriculum, and helps pupils to remember long term the content they have been taught and to integrate new knowledge into larger ideas.


Reading is prioritised to allow pupils to access the full curriculum offer. In EYFS and Year 1 phonics is taught using the Little Wandle scheme 


The national curriculum, which covers all subjects and clearly identifies what should be taught in each key stage forms one part of our school curriculum. It provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum. Relationship Education and PSHE is interwoven throughout the curriculum.


Another crucial part part is the cultural capital. Cultural capital is the essential knowledge and experiences that children need to prepare them for their future success. These activities further enrich our children’s learning experiences.


Our extra curriculum activities also broaden the child’s school experience. The range offered takes into account children’s interests, introduces them to new experiences and builds confidence beyond the four walls of the classroom.
