The National Curriculum

We teach according to the National Curriculum 2014 for all children in Years 1 to 6 

 

OUR CURRICULUM


The curriculum which we offer all of our children is provided through a series of planned units of work which are created and implemented by our teaching staff.

Aims
The aims of our school curriculum are:

  • to enable all children to learn, and develop their skills, to the best of their ability;
  • to promote a positive attitude towards learning, so that children enjoy coming to school, and acquire a solid basis for lifelong learning;
  • to teach children the basic skills of literacy, numeracy and computing;
  • to enable children to be creative and to develop their own thinking;
  • to teach children about the developing world, including how their environment and society have changed over time;
  • to help children understand Britain's cultural heritage;
  • to appreciate and value the contribution made by all ethnic groups in our multi-cultural society;
  • to enable children to be positive citizens;
  • to fulfil all the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and the Locally Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education;
  • to teach children to have an awareness of their own spiritual development, and to distinguish right from wrong;
  • to help children understand the importance of truth and fairness, so that they grow up committed to equal opportunities for all;
  • to enable children to have respect for themselves and high self-esteem, and to live and work cooperatively with others.
