The Curriculum

Aims

  • To provide a solid foundation of knowledge in the different subject areas as children move through the school (with underlying skills)

  • To provide a solid foundation of knowledge in the different subject areas as children move on to secondary education (with underlying skills)

  • To provide progressive skills in PE, art, DT and music with opportunities for excellence (joining sporting teams, choir, band, DT/art exhibitions) 

  • To connect subjects across the curriculum to achieve more depth of understanding 

  • To ensure a challenge for all and high expectations
