Our curriculum makes a difference to the lives of our children through:

  • Exposing our children to quality texts, which open up the literary world and the contexts, knowledge and vocabulary within them for our children and build a love of reading.
  • Being creative, engaging and knowledge rich so that our children enjoy learning and have a secure basis of knowledge needed to be active and educated world citizens.
  • Being sequenced and delivered so that our children know more, remember more and are able to do more.
  • Equipping our children with the skills and strategies they need to facilitate their own learning.
  • Ensuring our children are knowledgeable about their local area and the resources within it as well as about the wider world and the diversity within it.
