How is the curriculum organised?
Our curriculum is designed in a two year cycle of units of work based on curriculum themes. Our teachers plan in planning teams- made up of Foundation stage 1/ 2, Years 1/ 2, Years 3/ 4 and Years 5/6. Wow days are planned and carried out to hook the children’s learning. By taking starting points from the children’s context, the curriculum is brought to life and becomes exciting and interesting!
As part of the curriculum, children study how democracy and the law works in Britain, appropriate to the age of the pupils. The curriculum enables opportunities for the children to develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully and contribute positively to life in Modern Britain. Children are encouraged to understand and show a respect for a wide range of faiths and cultural diversity.
