Our Curriculum Design
We follow the National Curriculum: all children are taught the core subjects (English, Mathematics and Science) and the foundation Subjects (Art, Music, PE, History, Geography, Design Technology, PSHE, RE and ICT).
In KS 1 our phonics teaching is based upon the Letters and Sounds Programme incorporating additional resources such as Read Write Inc to form a comprehensive approach. Our reading schemes include both The Oxford Reading Tree and Pearson.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from RE or Collective Worship.
We emphasise creativity in our curriculum, as we believe children progress most rapidly when they are actively engaged in their learning. We employ a range of teaching styles and techniques, as we recognise that different children learn in different ways. Each child is given individual learning targets, based on what they know now and what they need to learn next, and we support every child to help them achieve.
We value all the pupils in our school equally and believe that each child is entitled to experience success by having their needs met and supported. Different levels of support are given to different pupils, depending on their degree of need and there are regular reviews led by our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO). The child is also involved in the review process and parents are informed of the pupil’s targets for achievement and progress made, at least once a term. The school’s Special Needs Policy is available on request from the school office.
