Curriculum Overview

Our pupils gain a very wide range of experiences to extend their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live.

By developing skills, attitudes and values, we prepare our children for the next stage of learning and to be successful in the community:

  1. Ready for key stage 1
  2. Ready for key stage 2
  3. Ready for secondary school

Effective learning takes place when there is considerable emphasis on active involvement, opportunities to talk both imaginatively, expressively and to explain and clarify thinking. We make meaningful connections across subjects.

We help everyone to develop and show a sense of responsibility and self-discipline whether alone, together, at work or at play, and to support policies on equal opportunities. We actively promote British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs to prepare our pupils for life in modern-day Britain. We also provide opportunities for our pupils to learn about the contribution of Britons to innovation, excellence and changes in the world.

 

Trips and Visits

Each term we include a range of exciting and meaningful trips. These visits enhance the themed topic they’re directly link to.

In years 3, 5 and 6, our children have the opportunity to take part in residential activities.

Throughout the year, we also invite special guests into our academy that provide workshops that are linked to the current topics or whole school theme.

 

Celebrating Success

We love celebrating our children’s success!

Celebration assembly is a time where we recognise the continuous hard work and determination of individual children.

Each week these children and their parents and carers are invited to attend a special ‘Star of The Week’ party where they will have the chance to take part in a range of exciting activities. 

 

Aims

  • That all pupils are provided with outstanding learning experiences that lead to consistently outstanding levels of pupil achievement.
  • From the start, children are taught in differentiated groups to allow further consolidation for some, and for greater speed and breadth of delivery at the upper end of attainment.
  • That all teachers and other professionals possess expert levels of knowledge in the subjects they teach.
  • That all teachers and other professionals are “lifelong learners”, committed to an ongoing development of their own knowledge and skills to optimise the pupils’ learning experiences.
  • That a positive, caring attitude, where achievements at all levels are acknowledged and valued, is prevalent throughout the school.
  • That all pupils from the earliest opportunity, are encouraged to develop independence, self-discipline, risk-taking, responsibility and the ability to build resilience.
