Our curriculum is designed to ensure that all children have strong basic skills and the subject specific skills that they will need to move successfully into the next phase of education. We use real life experiences as starting points for learning in order to ensure that pupils engage emotionally as well as intellectually with what we are asking them to learn.
We incorporate explicit teaching of learning behaviours and Christian and British values into our curriculum to ensure that our pupils are prepared for life in modern Britain whatever their starting points.

Our Curriculum Plans give information about the breadth of the curriculum that our pupils enjoy. We use a thematic approach and links that exist between subjects and across the year.
For the teaching of phonics, we use Read, Write Inc.
The skills covered by each year group in each subject are given in our ‘skills ladders’ documents. These show how we build on Children’s skills each year.
