Our curriculum is deep-rooted in a philosophy for education that allows all of our children to have the opportunity to access and engage in lessons that are creative, innovative with interconnectivity across subjects. Our intention is to enable our children to reach high levels of academic, sporting and artistic achievement.
Subjects are taught in the context of a purposeful and meaningful topic that inspires, excites and enthuses learners, offering them transferrable skills for life-long learning. The progressive curriculum builds upon prior knowledge, challenges thinking and enables a higher level of understanding for long term memory acquisition, storage and retention.
The long term curriculum plans and units of learning are colour-coded according to the subject it is, as follows:
Orange : Science Yellow: Art Green: Design & Technology
Purple: History Brown : Geography Blue: Religious Education
Red: Computing Grey: RSE Pale Blue : Physical Education
We teach French in Key Stage Two and we use a scheme called 'ilanguages' to teach it.
