Headteacher: Mrs J Boylan
The school offers a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which is designed to enable all children to become: successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. All classes are taught by the class teacher and have children of mixed ability. The children are taught using a variety of grouping and teaching methods. Teachers are supported by highly trained teaching assistants and other support staff.
Children begin their learning journey following the new statutory Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Progress is assessed against the Early Learning Goals across seven areas:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication & Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts & Design
In KS1 & KS2, National Curriculum core subjects are: Literacy (reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation), mathematics and science. These are delivered in a variety of ways that provide continuity of learning for the children across the school.
The National Curriculum foundation subjects: design & technology, computing, art & design, history, geography, music and physical education (gymnastics, athletics, games, dance and swimming in Key Stage 2) are delivered in a variety of ways: cross-curricular topics which have a theme and sometimes by subject.
The school also has a programme for personal, social, health and citizenship education (PSHCE). Sex education and drugs education are taught as part of the PSHCE curriculum.
The school uses specialist sport and music teachers in the curriculum so that children will have the opportunity to learn.
