An environment which is safe, welcoming and stimulating is provided throughout the school to promote confidence and independence. Ensuring children’s wellbeing is paramount with this being an essential ingredient for learning. There is excellent behaviour and an excitement for learning is evident as a result of the high standards of teaching and learning throughout the school. Cultures and religions are shared and respected. Reasonable adjustments will be made if needed to ensure all children are included in all parts of the curriculum and school life.


Foundation Years: Nursery and Reception


Foundation Years children are encouraged to learn through play to improve sustained concentration and exploration. Quality first hand experiences are provided to stimulate interest, curiosity and talk within the focused areas of development. These are included in the welcome pack.


Year 1 to Year 6


In order to provide a smooth transition between the Foundation Years and into Y1 we encourage children to continue to learn through quality play experiences. As the year progresses the children are introduced to a more structured approach. Children from Y2 work together more as a whole class as well as group work.


In all year groups children are encouraged to question and consider points of views with a focused lesson on philosophy for learning. Independence is promoted and a creative linked curriculum is in place which is supported by themes allowing many cross curricular links to be made within different areas of the curriculum as well as being enriched through trips, outside learning and afterschool clubs.


Focused areas for each term are expressive arts and design, understanding of the world and physical development. Core Subjects; Maths, English, Science and ICT are more heavily weighted, however non-core subjects are as important in their own right and in promoting core subjects through the linked curriculum.


Sex and Relationship Education


Sex and Relationship education is the lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development appropriate to support children’s identified needs. It is about the understanding of the importance of stable family life and loving relationships, respect, love and care. We aim to provide all pupils with Sex and Relationship education, this in the Lower Years is through implicit teaching of themes such as Life Cycles, Friendship and Caring. Y5 and Y6 have explicit sex education lessons where resources are shared with parents for consent.
