Whole School Curriculum

As a staff group, we started writing our Curriculum three years ago with our children in mind, we created these topics to work in a two year cycle so that teachers can plan and teach together and therefore working to our strengths. Our aim was, and still is, to use the objectives from the National Curriculum and make it as creative and exciting for the children as possible so they develop a love for learning. In order for this curriculum to be engaging for our children, it will be regularly evaluated and changed to meet their needs, the needs of our school and the needs within the wider community and the world. Please click here to read our 'Teaching and Learning' statement which has been written by the school staff and approved by our Full Governing Body.

We have started to make changes based on our evaluations from the previous two years. If you would like to see our Curriculum maps, please follow the links:
