In short, we want our children to shape their own lives, and have the skills to be the person they want to be. Our integrated curriculum is very practical; this serves us well, as it engages all ability levels and can be accessed by children at different stages of English language acquisition. Our learning involves many visits, and opportunities to learn in different environments. Children learn through studying different themes; these are carefully structured to give a balance of learning opportunities, and draw children’s ability to make links and find meaning in their learning.
At every opportunity, we look to make our children’s learning experiences as authentic as possible. Where visits are not possible, ICT is used to access high quality images and digital video that help bring each topic to life and make learning as relevant and as real as possible; we even use video conferencing to link up with speakers and audiences from around the UK and the wider world.
We employ specialist teachers for music lessons, whole class instrumental tuition in cello and violin for Year 4 pupils and individual brass lessons.
The school has received the following awards in recognition of the high quality work it achieves across these curriculum areas:
