Our core curriculum is based on the National Curriculum for England that must be taught in all maintained schools:

We believe that effective learning takes place when children are engaged and excited by the curriculum, when the subject matter is placed in an interesting and relevant context and when resources are chosen for their impact. We recognise the importance of visits and visitors in enriching learning and we seek to provide experiences that are memorable for our children. We consciously seek ways to support the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of our children through all areas of the set curriculum and ensure that our PSE curriculum is rich in opportunities for children to explore and express these areas of development.
In order to ensure full coverage of the new national curriculum for England, 2014, we have devised an initial programme showing how subject areas may be covered over a two year period. We have endeavoured to create cross curricular links whenever possible and to enable projects for whole school involvement as we have valued the success of this approach in previous years. This programme is subject to review in the light of our first year’s experience in matching the new requirements.
