Our Curriculum

All children have equal access to the curriculum regardless of gender, disability or special educational need. Recent building work includes wheelchair access and disabled toilet facilities in the main building and an access ramp to the mobile classroom. 

Each of our four classes has a Learning Support Assistant as well as the class teacher. The standard admission number for our Reception class is just fifteen children and all other classes have less than thirty children. 

Children are taught according to their ability rather than their age and may move between classes for certain lessons to enable them to move on at their own pace. In this way all children fulfil their potential. 

The curriculum is based on themes such as “The Egyptians” or “Chocolate”. Some themes reflect the history and geography of our location such as “Cars” and “Farming”. Other subjects may be taught separately if there are no obvious links with the theme. All older children learn French. 

Children also learn at least one musical instrument and we offer violin, cello and guitar lessons. 

We aim to organise a very wide range of trips, including two residential trips in Key Stage Two, and we frequently invite visitors into school to provide a rich and varied range of experiences for all the children. 

All children have two hours of timetabled PE every week. Children have weekly swimming lessons for a term each year from Year 3 on wards.
