Curriculum Statement
We believe strongly in a creative approach to the curriculum.  We value children’s differences and look for their strengths.  We try to use a range of teaching strategies to meet the needs of different learning styles and we introduce thinking strategies and encourage learning dispositions across the curriculum. We aim to provide a positive, questioning, reasoning approach to all learning to enhance children’s self-esteem and foster a true love of learning.


We aim to make our curriculum the very best it can be and at present are implementing new curriculum plans which enable teachers to be more flexible and creative in delivery and to focus on the development of skills that children need to become true learners.


Details of our curriculum planning and schemes of work are available in school.  A brief outline of our curriculum follows:
