Our aim is to making learning a life long passion. We want the children of our school to be respectful and honest with a sound knowledge of right and wrong and the role they have in our school, local and wider community, both now and in the future. Through our broad curriculum, we aim to nurture tolerance of others, self reflection and independent learning skills, children who have the resilience to solve problems and persevere with new skills using a ‘have a go’ attitude towards their learning. The curriculum content is progressive and we are beginning to adapt it to reflect what is relevant now, special anniversaries, the local area and children’s interests whilst ensuring coverage of the statutory curriculum is thorough.
We develop our curriculum to meet the needs of our children, there is an inbuilt flexibility that enables skills to be taught at an appropriate level for each class through topics that have relevance and meaning.
For detail on what children are currently learning, please see class pages under the 'Our School' menu.
Children and staff worked exceptionally hard to prepare for SATs. The papers were very challenging. former Education Secretary Nicky Morgan stated, "This is the first year we have assessed pupils under the new more rigorous system and it is no surprise that this year's results look different to previous years." So we cannot compare the results with previous results but can compare with the national average. I am sure you will agree our results are a pleasing start to the new assessment system and curriculum. Well done to all the children and a huge thank you to the staff for all their hard work.
