Our aim is provide a curriculum that challenges, excites and inspires children to become successful learners and encourages them to develop their individual potential.
The school curriculum comprises all the learning and other experiences that we plan for our pupils. We follow the guidelines of the National Curriculum. From September, our curriculum will be planned in termly themes, with topics chosen to capture the children’s imaginations and interests. Subjects such as English, history, geography, art, design and technology will be taught through the theme which allows children to make purposeful links in their learning. See below for our four year rolling cycle.
The national curriculum only forms one part of the school curriculum. Our school have chosen to enhance it with PATHs, which stands for Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies. The programme teachers social and emotional learning. It involves helping children to:
- recognise emotions and values;
- make constructive choices about personal and social behaviour; and
- show understanding and empathy for others.
In addition to the exciting themes and PATHs, we also provide a range of further opportunities to enhance children’s learning including: assemblies, whole school themed days, educational visits, visitors into school, extra curricular clubs and homework.
