• The curriculum is a modern relevant learning framework which is constantly evolving. It is personalised and where possible rooted in our local context.

  • In line with most schools, we work from and develop the National Curriculum to meet our children’s needs. In doing this we place a high emphasis on basic skills and our children achieve well.

  • We use elements of Talk for Writing in English, particularly in the foundation stage.  Further up the school, we plan English around a book, incorporating elements of grammar, writing and reading.

  • Our teachers use a blended approach of Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics to teach phonics. At Key Stage 1 we use Oxford Reading Tree, Phonic Bug and a wide selection of banded real books to support the learning of reading and phonics.
