Through our Big Question Curriculum, we aim to create aspirational, resilient, lifelong learners who are curious about the wider world and ready for life in an ever changing society.
Our curriculum is driven by the need to prepare our children for lifelong learning. Based on the requirements of the national curriculum it is rich, broad and ambitious for all learners. It develops our children’s essential knowledge, skills and understanding which are the building blocks for their continuing education at secondary school and indeed their later life.
Our learning environment is rich, supportive and stimulating with an atmosphere of mutual respect, in which each child can reach their full potential by developing a love of learning and a desire to succeed, both in the present and their future lives.
Reading is at the heart of our curriculum. We are passionate about reading and know that reading opens up a world of possibilities for our children and brings great joy.
Our wider curriculum - trips, clubs, experiences, performing arts and sporting events - enhance our taught curriculum and support children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We believe that being active and participating in sport, particularly team sports, is fundamental to a healthy life both mentally and physically.
Our aim is that when children leave us to move on to Secondary School, they have:
- Belief in themselves and excellent attitudes to learning
- An excellent grasp of knowledge and skills
- A strong sense of moral purpose, tolerance and respect for others
- The aspiration to aim high and challenge themselves to achieve great things now and in the future
In all aspects of school life they will
‘Be the best they can be’
