Curriculum Statement

Our mission statement of ‘Achievement for All’ is based on our belief that all pupils and staff should achieve to the very best of their ability.  Our curriculum enables all pupils to broaden their experiences.  We aim to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes they will need to develop well – spiritually, personally, socially, emotionally and academically.  We expect all pupils to learn and achieve well and to have a good understanding of positive citizenship.

We follow national and local curriculum guidance in terms of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and the National Curriculum which is designed to meet all statutory requirements.  We recognise that new curriculum opportunities arise through special events, projects and experiences and we try to maintain a flexible approach so that the pupils are motivated to contribute and learn.  All trust schools are using their expertise of the curriculum developed over time to inform the implementation of the new curriculum from September 2017.

We are proud of the cultural heritage of pupils and seek to acknowledge both diversity and unity.  Work includes the celebration of religious events, opportunities for spiritual reflection, links with other schools in different contexts and visits to places of worship.  We take account of the views and needs of our families in terms of curriculum implementation.  Cross curricular learning opportunities are provided through, for example, literacy, history, geography or art and we use a combination of published materials and our own school based plans.  We seek ways to promote a creative, practical and active approach so that we provide memorable experiences for pupils especially through educational visits and visitors.  We aim to identify and develop individual talents in a way which will promote personal fulfilment through science , literature and the arts.

We are committed to ensuring that all pupils develop basic skills in literacy, numeracy, science and ICT and these form the base of staff training and the core of our curriculum.  In order to enable all pupils to achieve well, they work in flexible, targeted teaching groups (TTGs).  Achievement is particularly closely monitored in literacy and numeracy and appropriate interventions are put in place if pupils’ progress does not match our aspirations for every child.
