Curriculum

 

The school follows the National Curriculum for England and Wales. In Nursery and Reception the children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum - a play based curriculum based around seven areas of learning called 'prime' and 'specific' areas.

 

Play is essential for children's development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems, and relate to others. Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by adults. They will learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.

 

In Year 1 and 2 the curriculum begins to take on a more formal approach and children study English and Maths alongside the remainder of the subjects – Science, History and Geography through a topic approach. Learning is enhanced by a dedicated computing room, a Library (currently a ‘reading castle’), additional outdoor areas and resource rooms for smaller group work. Creative subjects such as Art and Music are taught alongside Physical Education in the school hall and the field/playground.

 

Worship is integral to the ethos of the school and your child will enjoy assembly gatherings where they will learn the concepts of shared responsibility and values - education driven by the church in conjunction with you as the community.
