Curriculum

  • Our school motto “Treasure Each Individual” reflects our view that each child deserves to be valued in their own right and to be supported to develop their own unique talents. This links closely with our Christian vision, which is based upon Psalm139. We recognise that all of us are “wonderfully made…dearly loved and precious in God’s sight”. Our curriculum is  designed to inspire children in the widest sense: spiritually, academically, physically, culturally and globally so that they are equipped to be the best that they can be in every sense and prepared for life as citizens in the wider and ever changing world.

    Our curriculum is therefore planned around seven areas of learning and addresses the physical, mental, spiritual, cultural and intellectual health of all children.

    Collective Worship

    Collective Worship occurs daily, either as a whole school or in Key Stages. Children are encouraged to take a leading role in some assemblies. Assemblies reflect the rich and varied heritage of other cultures as well as the Christian heritage. Examples from the lives and literature of many cultures and faiths provide inspiration and role models. Each class prepares an assembly to share with the school and parents at least once a year. Every Friday the school gathers together for a ‘special’ assembly where achievements are recognised and celebrated together. The presentation of celebrations and seasonal festivals increases knowledge and understanding.
    Parents may make a request to withdraw a child from assemblies and religious education. Such a request would need to be discussed with the Headteacher.
