"The Headteacher and senior leaders have worked closely together to bring about improvements in teaching. Consequently, teaching is consistently good and continues to improve."

We provide a curriculum that is inspiring, creative and challenging where key skills such as problem solving, thinking and working with others are fundamental to teaching and learning across the school. We often integrate subjects such as History, Geography, Science, Art and Design Technology with Maths, English and Computing, helping pupils to make meaningful connections between areas of study.

Our Curriculum Aims

Our curriculum has been designed to provide our children with all the skills, knowledge and experiences they need make good progress.

We aim to:

  • Support and encourage learning from each other through collaboration, enquiry and experience, providing ample opportunities for children to learn outside the classroom
  • Instil the skills and knowledge needed to be responsible citizens with an awareness of individual’s rights and responsibilities, in line with the UNCRC
  • Foster high moral values, attitudes, skills and knowledge for active and responsible global citizenship
  • Prepare pupils to be effective lifelong learners, eager to learn new things and ready for the next stage of their journey towards adult life and employment in a fast-changing world
  • Motivate, encourage and enable pupils to achieve their best; meeting challenges and overcoming them, showing resilience and determination
  • Help develop an understanding of the world in which we live and the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations

The Curriculum includes:

The school uses the new Primary National Curriculum 2014. We are shaping it to ensure children develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve mastery learning; critically able to examine information, make judgements and use information in new ways. We want our children to be independent thinkers who are able to articulate their views and those of others.

The National Primary Curriculum 2014

Religious Education and Collective Worship

Sex Education

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

All children study the core subjects of English and Mathematics.  In addition, they study Science, Computing, Art and Design, Design Technology, History, Geography, French, Music, Physical Education and Religious Education

Growth Mindset

The curriculum is adapted to meet the individual needs of our pupils, supporting and stretching them to achieve their best regardless of their ability level. Children are encouraged to consider their level of challenge in lessons and to use growth mindset principles to achieve their goals. This helps pupils to develop positive attitudes to their work, embracing challenge and understanding that over-coming set-backs and difficulties are the key to good learning. Adults in school praise ‘I can’t do it YET’ attitudes and our YETI visits classrooms when children have demonstrated these behaviours. Integral to this is the use of our learning powers to help children build strong learning behaviours: concentration, resilience, responsibility, curiosity, risk taking, creativity, co-operation and enjoyment. These stem from our School Values and each term we award our Values Cup to a child who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to our values.

We want all our children to become confident learners who are able to work both collaboratively and independently.  We aim to provide children with a curriculum that encourages a range of learning opportunities and styles. We plan with the individual needs of our pupils in mind. We recognise that children may learn best in different ways and at different speeds and this is reflected in our lesson planning, resources and development of the school environment.

Learning Outside The Classroom

Learning outside of the classroom helps to ensure that the needs of every child are met, providing a wide range of opportunities and experiences in the wider world. Teachers will consider the most appropriate environment for each lesson focusing on both the learning and personal development of their children. We are committed to utilising the whole of our school grounds as a learning resource but also look beyond the school gates to the local area and beyond, taking children on educational visits to enhance learning and raise pupil achievement further.

Religious Education

Our Religious Education work follows the Hampshire syllabus, Living Difference, which aims to foster in pupils a reflective approach to life. Children are encouraged to interpret and respond to a variety of concepts, beliefs and practices within different religions and to begin to explore their own cultural and life experiences. R.E. supports children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It recognises the Christian religious traditions in our country but takes account of the teachings and practices of other principal religions. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from the R.E. curriculum but must put this request in writing to the Headteacher. The agreed syllabus, Living Difference, may be viewed in school.

Sex and Relationships Education

The aim of SRE is to provide children with age appropriate information explore attitudes and values and develop skills in order to empower them to make positive decisions about their health related behaviour. This takes place with consideration of the qualities of relationships within families.

Sex and relationship education will reflect the values of the PSHE and Citizenship programme. .  It will also draw upon the Conventions of the Rights of the Child (CRC).  SRE will be taught in the context of relationships.

In addition SRE will promote self-esteem and emotional health and well-being and help them form and maintain worthwhile and satisfying relationships, based on respect for themselves and for others, at home, school, work and in the community.

The Education Act of 1993 permits parents to withdraw their children from that part of Sex Education which is outside the National Curriculum.  Parents wishing to exercise this right are asked to discuss their concerns with the Headteacher.

A copy of the Sex Education Policy and programmes of study are available on request.
