The Curriculum

As a school we focus on the basic skills of Reading Writing and Maths. Our Basic Skills

Quality Mark is one indicator that we do this well. For the rest of the curriculum we teach in a cross-curricular way wherever possible, tying in the individual subjects with a theme that makes the curriculum interesting and fun. Themes vary from year to year according to what the teacher’s feel will engage the children and could be anything from ‘The Circus’ to ‘Egyptians’. This is taught over a two year cycle as we have mixed age classes, so children experience Year A and Year B in any one class.
