Curriculum Aims

We aim to offer a broad balanced curriculum. We have a topic based approach to learning in order to make it relevant and meaningful to each child. The curriculum is enriched by visits out and by visitors coming into school.

By the time they leave Primary School our curriculum will enable children to:

  • Read fluently, with enjoyment and understanding.
  • Speak with clarity and confidence.
  • Understand and follow instructions.
  • Write legibly and neatly using an appropriate style with correct use of spelling, punctuation and syntax.
  • Use mathematical concepts and skills within everyday situations.
  • Gain skills of observation and enquiry to develop an insight into science and technology.
  • Develop control, co-ordination, mobility and endurance in a range of physical activities.
  • Show an awareness of geographical, historical and social influences on people and places both locally and in other areas.
  • Be able to express oneself through a range of creative forms: music, drama and art.
  • Have an understanding that Christian principles can be a foundation for life.
  • Use information and communication technology within the curriculum and beyond to enhance and develop their understanding.
  • Acquire a set of moral values in order to build meaningful relationships with others.
  • Appreciate other religions and cultures
  • Learn to speak, read and write French.
