We believe that a love of learning will enrich lives and expand horizons. We want to give your child a learning experience that will nurture a love of learning and that will inspire them to catch a ‘Learning Habit’ that will last a lifetime.

We have worked very hard to create a curriculum that is vibrant, interesting and engaging and based on the principles of the national curriculum. We want each day to be memorable and for children to see the amazing skills and qualities they possess and to develop these so they become resilient, honest and hard working members of our community.

Learning is centred around themes or topics because children learn best if their learning is linked and purposeful. The ‘Curriculum Webs’ (that can be found in the children’s section under year groups)show clearly what the learning will be each term and how they are linked. There will be a celebration of the learning at the end of each unit to which you will be invited. Learning is stronger if it happens in partnership with the home. We are grateful to our wonderful parents who support their children with homework and take an interest in their child’s learning and progress.

Learning does not just happen during the normal hours of the school day and we have a wide range of learning opportunities during lunchtime and after school that we hope your child will become involved in.
