Curriculum

We have a varied and exciting curriculum which is personalised to the pupils in each cohort. We are currently developing our curriculum, as all schools should be, to ensure we cover the new National Curriculum. Each class has at least one trip or visitor per term. For example our youngest class are having a farm visit the school very soon. However, all of our classes have a huge range of activities to ensure 'learning is irresistible'.

 

 

Here is an overview of our  topics and themes. We aim to deliver a broad, balanced curriculum which meets the needs of all our pupils through challenging and stimulating activities.

The New Curriculum Changes Overview

Thank you to all of those parents who could attend last night’s Parents Forum. It was fantastic to see so many parents and have really meaningful discussions about our children’s curriculum. The changes are significant and mean a great deal of reflection and hard work for all the community but especially the teachers. So thank you for supporting us in this way. We do have some magical moments here in all sorts of ways and it is important we hold firm to the aspects of learning we value. You will receive a feedback form for those who attended and have had more ideas but also for those who wanted to have a voice but couldn’t make it. The links to the documents and the powerpoint slideshow are above.

 

The next Parents Forum is on Wednesday 11th June at 9.10am and is on the changes and the new documents related to Special Educational Needs. By law, we need to consult a group of parents. We need a mixed group of parents some who have experience of SEN support and some who do not. Hopefully, then we can ensure we meet the needs of all children. Mrs Liz Tilbury (SENCo) and I will be leading this. Please do come along, have a cup of tea or coffee and help us ensure our children get the very best. Thank you.
