What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.
Termly letters from each class are posted on the website so that parents can see the work that the children will be undertaking. A text will be sent out when they are posted. Homework will also be outlined at this time. If you have any further questions about our curriculum please do not hesitate to contact the Teaching and Learning Manager Mrs Broady.
We have a large library which is very well resourced and run by our school librarians. Children always have access to the library.
Outdoor education and residential visits
The outdoor classroom can be used to bring learning alive for many children and we aim where possible to use our spacious grounds to inspire and stimulate our children. We also utilise the local surrounding community and try to link with local churches, businesses and residents to enhance the curriculum.
Residentials are a great way of building self-confidence and increasing independence as well as allowing children to develop teamwork skills and friendships. We aim to provide our children with a residential experience whilst with us and give them the opportunity to take part if they wish to do so.
On residential visits charges can be made for board and lodging but, because the visits take place during school hours, the cost of travel has to be met by voluntary contribution. No child will be discriminated against should parents not wish to contribute to travel costs. However, if sufficient contributions are not made the visit will not take place.
All our school letters comply with the 1988 Education Act and the Governor’s Charging Policy. Please speak to the Headteacher to discuss any remission (Family Credit or Jobseeker’s Allowance) or to agree a payment schedule to suit individual circumstances or need.
Educational day visits
First-hand experience and real life scenarios are also hugely beneficial to creating exciting, quality learning and we value the role they play in school life. We also invite a variety of visitors into school to help enhance our curriculum. Visitors bring with them a passion for what they do which can be used positively to support our children’s learning.
