Our Learning

Our curriculum puts the child at the centre of our school family, where positive relationships, based on mutual trust and respect are at the heart of everything we do. Our ambitious curriculum has been designed to take account of the legal requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the Primary National Curriculum. It exposes our children to enriching and vibrant experiences, immersing them in progressive knowledge and skills; equipping them with personal characteristics required to succeed in life. This ensures that our children are immersed in their learning, allowing each of them to express themselves as an individual and whilst also providing them with the tools to play an active part in our wider community.

To reflect the individual nature of our children, we ensure that our curriculum is individual to our school. We began with how we could inspire and engage the diverse nature of our school family. Our staff carefully considered the life experiences that our children have already been exposed to and also the experiences that we felt they needed to achieve their ambitions in life. We know that in order to create well-rounded individuals, we must embed a belief in our school family that ‘they can and they will’. This is reflected through our weekly collective celebrations where children are championed for demonstrating the ‘I can and I will’ spirit. We are passionate about preparing children for the challenges and obstacles that they may face now or in the future by providing them with opportunities to be; Confident, Curious, Independent, Resilient and Ambitious in all areas of the Curriculum.

Our Virtues are founded upon the Fruit of the Holy Spirit. The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a collection of nine key attributes which when followed can ensure that students not only become better versions of themselves in God’s image, they can also positively influence the lives of others. According to the Epistle to the Galatians 5:22-23: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control; against such there is no law.” These create the foundation for spiritual reflection throughout the year and will continue to be threaded throughout each child’s journey through our school. Those continuous threads intertwine to help shape our children’s spiritual, moral and social compass that will lead them successfully through life.
