Statement of Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum is underpinned by our four values:
Kindness
Happiness
Confidence
Independence

 

 

Children use our six Learning Behaviours:
Resilience

Learning Behaviours are introduced to the children when they are in Reception, when the time is right. Each Learning Behaviour is linked to an animal which helps the children to remember them.

We nurture individuals from the moment they join us, taking into account any needs and strengths and building on these.

Well-being, mental health and physical development are a key features in our curriculum.

We plan activities so that we can support the growth of each child holistically.

We offer opportunities for children to learn in a way that suits them.

Ambitious

All staff have high expectations and children make excellent progress and to leave us ready for Junior school.

Children take pride in their learning and outcomes are high.
