Curriculum Aims

AimsWe believe that children come to our school with a wide variety of learning experiences, preferences and needs.  We aim to provide all children with a positive, enjoyable learning experience, enabling all children to grow and to fulfil their potential.

The curriculum is delivered using a thematic approach to study. To ensure that children and teachers are interested in the topics studied; topics are built around the interests of the members of our school community.  Themes are adapted, improved and changed regularly to ensure a fresh approach to teaching.  All themes begin with a ‘stunning start’ to stimulate curiosity and a desire to learn. They are then concluded in style with a ‘fabulous finish’.

In planning our themes, the children’s prior interests and experiences are considered.  Children learn in many different ways and our lessons cater for different learning styles, ensuring active participation in all activities.  This active approach to learning will ensure that children are motivated.

Our effective use of assessment for learning ensures that children can see the purpose of their own learning and all lessons are expected to be led by an appropriate learning objective which is shared with the children, along with related success criteria.
