We provide a balanced curriculum which is geared to the needs of individual children growing up in a changing society where the skills of living together in harmony and understanding are of increasing importance. All areas of the curriculum are available to both girls and boys and every effort is made to promote equality of educational provision.
The core subjects are Mathematics, English, Science and Information Communication Technology.
The foundation subjects are History, Geography, Design Technology, Music, Art, Physical Education.
All pupils are taught in mixed-ability classes using a variety of teaching methods including whole class teaching, group and individual work. For part of Year 6, pupils are organised into groups for Mathematics and English three times a week.
Pupils are taught PSHE ( personal, social, health and economic education) within their classes. We see PSHE as a valuable subject in giving children the opportunities to understand and appreciate the differences people in our society have and to help prepare our children for life in the wider world.
Parents/carers have the right to withdraw their child from collective worship and sex education. Any parent/carer wishing to do so should make an appointment to meet with the headteacher.
We ask that at home children are encouraged to read, with parents or carers, and to learn spellings, and their times tables, and prepare for writing tasks. Occasionally they may be asked to undertake other small projects outside school time, and parental support in this is greatly valued by the school. We communicate to parents/carers on a weekly basis about how they can support their child at home through home support task sheets.
