Curriculum

Teaching and learning is the purpose of our school. We believe that children should enjoy their school experience and we aim to deliver our skills based curriculum in an exciting, engaging and creative way.

Our youngest pupils (Reception Year) are taught according to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, and all other pupils according to the National Curriculum.

The core subjects are:

-    English
-    Mathematics
-    Science
-    Art
-    Design & Technology
-    History
-    Geography
-    ICT (Computing)
-    Music
-    Personal, Health & Social Education
-    Physical Education
-    French
-    Religious Education

Religious Education is a legal entitlement for every child and forms part of the curriculum. Parents may, if they wish, withdraw their children form the arrangements for worship and Religious education. Such requests must be made in writing to the Headteacher.
