Our Curriculum Drivers
Our 3Cs ensure our curriculum offer is bespoke by shaping its personality.
They reflect the unique cultural needs of our children.
They consider local climate.
They are underpinned by our core school values.
"A desire to learn "
An eagerness to explore, discover and figure things out.
We have a responsibility to support and reinforce this innate curiosity to give children the confidence to develop their own theories about our incredible world.
"A celebration of the richness of our differences"
Respecting our Christian Distinctiveness and valuing how all cultures and faiths add something special to the vibrant and interesting world we live in.
We have a responsibility to ensure children recognise the abundant diversity of cultures and provide opportunities for them to learn from all their unique qualities.
"A sense of belonging, inclusion and responsibility"
Knowing that as part of a community individuals’ behaviours influence and have an impact on their environment and others.
We have a responsibility to ensure children understand their roles, rights and responsibilities at home, in school, in the local community and in the wider world.
The National Curriculum
Early Years Foundation Stage
Our youngest children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. There are seven areas of the curriculum - Communication and Language, Literacy, Maths, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Expressive Art and Design and Understanding the World.
The National Curriculum for Key Stage One and Two
In Years One - Six, the children are taught the National Curriculum and will study English, Maths, Science, Computing, Religious Education, History, Geography, Design Technology, Art, Music and Physical Education. In Years 3 - 6, our children learn French. The framework of the National Curriculum is used when planning our schemes of work for the children.
We are following the National Curriculum that was launched in September 2014. The guides below give excellent information outlining what has changed and what your child will be taught in each year group.
Please check the tabs to the left for information for each subject, including termly Knowledge Organisers to show you what we are teaching in each topic.
Shining Light Ambassadors
For each of our curriculum subjects, we have a "Shining Light Ambassador", someone who has inspired us to think more deeply about each area of our curriculum.
