Curriculum Organisation

Excellence in teaching and learning is the principal at the heart of our school. We offer an exciting and creative curriculum which inspires and motivates the children to achieve their full potential. Recognising that all children unique and individual, we provide a curriculum to meet their needs, whilst also ensuring that all children learn essential skills in English and Maths and Science.

We enrich children's learning with visits and experiences beyond the classroom. Also we regularly invite visitors and experts into school, from the wider community to work alongside the children. This enhances the children's social, moral, cultural and spiritual development.

The school has a good sporting tradition and the children enjoy playing a range of sports and taking part in local and county-level events.
