Children remain at the centre of the curriculum and play a key part with their contribution to the planning stage, whether in Early Years where our practitioners observe the children’s interests and enhance the environment accordingly; or in upper school where pupils contribute their questions to a planning session.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a comprehensive framework which sets the standards for learning, development and care of children from birth to five. For each area, the practice guidance sets out the Early Learning Goals. These goals state what is expected that children will know and be able to do at the end of their Reception year of their education. The practice guidance also sets out the likely stages of progress a child makes along their learning journey towards the early learning goals. We ensure that this is used when assessing children and planning their ‘next steps’ of learning.

Key Stage One and Two
The National Curriculum highlights English, Mathematics, Science, Computing as the core subjects. These are taught alongside, the foundation subjects (History, Geography, Music, Art, Physical Education) and Religious Education. Children’s work is planned to meet their particular needs. It is differentiated to meet the needs of their differing abilities, and children are grouped by ability from Year 1 upwards to facilitate this within Mathematics and English.
Alongside the academic curriculum, we ensure that we develop the ‘whole child’. We have structured learning environment where we work to cultivate the aesthetic, creative, physical, spiritual, moral and social areas of experience for the benefit of all our pupils. The School is fully committed to Equal Opportunities Multi-cultural Education and promoting Modern British Values.
