We aim to offer a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum to support children’s learning and to promote excellence.

English is taught through the use of the Primary Literacy Framework in conjunction with the ‘Power of Reading’ project from the CLPE and the teachers use a scheme of work for their planning that incorporates speaking and listening, reading and writing across the different genres. In addition to this Big Writing is taught weekly from Year 2 –Year 6 providing opportunities for extended writing.

For phonics we use the Letters and Sounds Phonics Programme in Reception and KS1.

We also use Accelerated Reader in KS2 and Year 2 when they are ready. This enhances our reading program and challenges the children to be independent learners.

Maths is taught using the Primary Numeracy Strategy and the school own Calculation Policy to provide consistency in our teaching and to ensure progression in the development of mathematical skills.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for children aged 3 to 5 years of age.

As a school, we also use the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) to enhance our curriculum. IPC is effective in enabling pupils to apply skills and knowledge acquired in English, Maths, Science and other curriculum areas in a purposeful and concrete way. The school has linked all topic areas to the key skills children should learn in Science, History, Geography, DT, Art and Music/Dance and PE.
