Curriculum Curriculum Intent Welcome to our curriculum page. We are extremely proud of the curriculum which is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. The uniqueness of every child is recognised and valued and we celebrate and develop the individual talents of our pupils. As such, our curriculum embraces the community from which it exists, recognising the varied backgrounds and experiences from which our children originate. The teachers use interesting and relevant themes combined with a wide range of reading materials to engage children and maximise learning for all. This well-planned curriculum is complimented by an exciting variety of visitors and trips, including residential visits for years 4 and 6. Our curriculum is further enriched through the wide range of after-school club provision and sporting competitions, led by the sport’s specialist. All of the children have the opportunity to learn to play a range of musical instruments including recorders, glockenspiels and the ukulele. The school has adopted a “teaching for mastery” approach for maths which gives pupils a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject. Whole Class Reading and the Letters and Sounds programme is used to support phonics teaching and reading. We constantly adapt our learning journey to meet the needs and interests of our children, offering an excellent education underpinned by a broad, culturally rich and powerful curriculum to ensure that all pupils are well equipped for the next stages in their education. By the time the children leave for secondary school, they have developed a thirst for learning, determination to succeed and respect for each other.
