National Curriculum


We shape our curriculum to offer a wide ranging skillset; that empowers our pupils to leave Primary Education inspired and motivated to learn more. Our curriculum is designed around building skills and knowledge progressively over time. It is built upon knowing that learning is a journey, and that our curriculum offer will lead our pupils to a brighter future.

Active learning is of high importance and we have sculpted a curriculum that engages all pupils in a variety of fun and exciting ways. Our curriculum gives our pupils opportunities at developing their independence, in every aspect of the word. From becoming a well-rounded citizen - to taking charge of their own learning. We have designed our curriculum to inspire our pupils to find out more.

We value academic success but also nurture an understanding of the parallel development of our pupils’ personal and social skills, firmly believing that these are fundamental to them achieving success in all aspects of their future lives as a citizen in modern Britain.
