School Curriculum

Each class page contains downloadable newsletters which will outline what is being delivered for each subject area. We use the White Rose Maths Scheme and Hamilton Trust and Jane Considine for Reading and Writing development. If you have any questions about the curriculum for your child's class, please speak to your child's Class Teacher in the first instance.

The Role of the Curriculum

Our curriculum promotes respect, tolerance and diversity. We are committed to ensuring that our pupils are offered a broad and balanced curriculum that aims to prepare them for life in modern Britain.

Children are encouraged to share their views and recognise that they are entitled to have their own different beliefs which should not be used to influence others. Our RSE (Relationships and Sex Education), Citizenship and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) provision is embedded across the curriculum, and underpins the ethos of our schools. 

Teaching the schools’ core values alongside the fundamental British values supports quality teaching and learning, whilst making a positive contribution to the development of a fair, just and civil society. Children are regularly taught about how to stay safe when using the Internet and are encouraged to recognise that people are not always who they say they are online. They are taught to seek adult help if they are upset or concerned about anything they read or see on the Internet.

School Ethos and Values

The organisation, curriculum and ethos of the school have been devised by Governors and Staff to deliver our main aim, which is:

To enable each individual, with his/her own needs, talents and abilities, to reach their maximum potential.

We achieve this by:

  • Making learning exciting, enjoyable, challenging but never threatening and having expectations of excellence whilst accepting and learning from mistakes.
  • Providing a broad, rich and balanced curriculum.
  • Employing suitably qualified and motivated staff.
  • Providing a safe, caring atmosphere in which children and all adults, including parents, families, friends, governors and staff, are welcomed and valued as equal partners in education.
  • Encouraging children to become increasingly independent whilst preparing them to become valuable members of society by encouraging good manners, a healthy lifestyle and mutual respect for each other and their environment.
  • Building upon and improving links with the local community and other schools in order to allow the children to develop a feeling of global citizenship.
  • Ensuring school premises are safe, secure, clean and appropriate for learning.

Complaints Procedure

If you have a concern about the school, please follow the complaints policy which can be found  in the files area of this page.

Covid Catch-Up Grant

The school has received money from the DfE to support pupils requiring additional support due to the pandemic and closure of schools. We are maintaining assessment using the data before school closed as a benchmark and running regular tests and hot and cold tasks to ensure pupils are supported and closely monitored. We have invested the money in webcams to ensure that the best possible face-to-face learning can take place for pupils working from home, have run a well-being and self-esteem course offered by NMPAT and have tutoring in place to support pupils on a short-term basis to fill in any gaps caused by the absence. Our quality first teaching also revisits areas missed during the lockdown and teaching assistant interventions are also in place to support the children in school. The schemes of work we use also include recapping of skills and work from the previous year to ensure that all pupils are secure in their prior learning before embarking on the work for the coming year.

Assessing Impact (2021-22)

Through our data drops, which take place five times a year, we will review the progress of each child and will ensure that any pupil who is behind receives interventions from our teaching staff and teaching assistants. This will allow us to identify pupil needs, put interventions in place and assess how well they have caught up. We also have access to online tutoring to ensure that any pupil who is behind can have additional support from a trained tutor.

How will we know if we have been successful?

Each pupil is expected to make at least six steps progress per year and, in the case of pupils who are behind due to the lockdown, they should be able to make accelerated progress with the steps in place. Meetings between the Executive Headteacher and the teaching staff will review this regularly, alongside governor visits and scrutiny at the Unity Standards' Committee meetings.
