We place great importance on providing a broad and vibrant curriculum. We follow a thematic based approach each term with a history or geography topic and our literacy and numeracy units include cross curricular studies. Our curriculum is enhanced by the learning of French in Years 3 & 4 and German in Years 5 & 6.

A wealth of enrichment activities including residential visits, day visits, visitors and learning beyond the classroom ensure that we provide experiences to engage, motivate and inspire.

We have very close working relations with our feeder High School, Moorside High School, and our KS2 children attend regularly for enrichment activities in Design and Technology, ICT, Music, Science and extension activities in literacy and numeracy in Year 6. Moorside High School teachers visit our school during the year to lead activities in Science, German and P.E


Curriculum Statement

The new National Curriculum was introduced into schools from September 2014. We spent the previous year preparing for this, becoming familiar with the new end of year expectations and planning a curriculum that meets the needs of our pupils and reflects the local community and context.

The curriculum has been planned to link together, where possible, the different subject areas and objectives for each year group into topics. We know that children learn best when they can make connections between the different areas of their learning and this approach makes the subjects more relevant and motivating for them.

Our school ethos and values are based upon Christian values, which in turn reflect unique fundamental British values.

Year group activities and information can be found on the individual class pages on the website.
