We aim to stimulate the natural curiosity of the children and develop their enquiring minds, encouraging a positive and purposeful attitude to learning. The school has worked hard to develop a curriculum which delivers the National Curriculum in a highly creative and profound manner. As a maintained school, it includes the formal requirements of the revised National Curriculum and ensures provision for the development of pupils social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding.
We aim to teach our pupils how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their full potential. The curriculum underpins the schools vision “Developing responsibility; Caring about achievement”.
The school follows the 2014 National Curriculum for Litearcy and Maths. Pupils have the opportunity to apply the skills learnt in English and maths across the wider curriculum.
The wider curriculum is planned to give opportunities for children to engage in subjects with an enthusing and enquiry based approach. Children should have opportunities to engage with adults other than their teachers and have a range of experiences inside and outside school that will enhance their understanding and engagement with a topic. It is anticipated that each term should be begin with an out of school visit, in school visitor or other opportunity to engage with the topic.
The school follows the National Curriculum for Maths, English and Science. We also follow the Leicestershire Agreed Local Syllabus for Religious Education and PE.
In EYFS/KS1 we teach the 'Letters and Sounds' programme of synthetic phonics and where appropriate will use Direct Phonics to provide additional support for older children.
