Our curriculum has been designed so that there is clear progression from the Early Years Foundation Stage to the National Curriculum. Knowledge, skills and understanding are developed in and across the curriculum subjects. Children will follow a curriculum that:
Is fun, practical and meaningful;
Is planned to satisfy the requirements relating to the Foundation Stage, National Curriculum, and Religious Education and the time allocation needed;
Includes all and will foster understanding and respect for others;
Develops constructive attitudes and qualities, promotes the importance of healthy living, basic skills of literacy and numeracy, mutual respect and encourages respect for the environment;
Enables the progress and attainment of each child to be monitored;
Develops the ‘whole child’; their spiritual awareness and aesthetic appreciation as well as academic achievement;
Encourages children’s particular interests and abilities;
Promotes independence of thought, skills, talents and abilities
