We recognise as a priority the careful and thoughtful delivery of the core subjects of English, Maths, Science, ICT and, as a Church School, both Religious Education and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education. We have adopted and developed the creative approaches to the Inspire Curriculum, which we believe is an ideal way, to teach the foundation subjects of Art and Design, History, Geography, Design Technology, Music and some aspects of Science, PE and language. An international link is woven into every study unit as are opportunities for children to learn about 'how to learn' and understand their own personal preferred learning style.
Our Teachers ensure that creative, challenging work is planned and that skills, concepts and knowledge are transferred between different areas of the curriculum. The themes selected for study are balanced both across the year and key stage, links are made to ensure that children develop the self-confidence to move from the familiar to the unknown and challenge themselves in a secure and supportive learning context.
We create opportunities for real experience through day visits, artistic partnerships and workshops. Our planning ensures that every theme studied has an 'entry point' to launch the study.

All National Curriculum (NC) subjects are coordinated and managed by an allocated teacher; each teacher plans development, monitors coverage and standards, offers support and advice and initiates experience rich opportunities to celebrate learning.

We use the Read, Write Inc scheme to teach our pupils to read fluently and to spell words using phonetic skills when writing. Pupils continue developing their spelling skills as they move into Key Stage 2, using the Read Write Inc. Spelling scheme. Parents are encouraged to support their children with the weekly spelling investigations which are set by their class teachers to give them opportunities to practise the spelling patterns taught in the daily spelling lessons that week.
