Each year group plans a topic and sends out a copy of the curriculum map.  Please go to class pages to see the most update curriculum map and how you can help your child further.

Each area of the curriculum is very important to us.  The core subjects are English, Maths, Science and RE.  These are essential skills that all children must have to enable them to contribute effectively within the community and the wider world.  As a result of this, a significant amount of time is given to learning the skills and then using and applying them. 

We challenge the children to achieve through excellence and enjoyment.  This is then followed up with a celebration of their achievements whether academic, creative or personal and social. This follows on from and supports our mission statement.
