Curriculum Overview

Intent: Through our curriculum children become confident, resilient and independent learners, with a passion for learning and the ability to express their opinions and beliefs.

Implementation: Skills are taught progressively across year groups leading to knowledge building over time. We provide learning with clear opportunities for speaking and listening.

Impact: This is seen in the work produced and the outcomes for all groups of pupils. Everything we do is with the child at mind, and strong relationships are built between pupils, staff and parents which create an atmosphere for learning which is conducive to success.

Since September 2014 the New National Curriculum is now being taught in all maintained primary schools. Exciting school trips are also planned, which all children attend, to enhance our pupils’ curriculum knowledge and understanding, as well as develop their independence and PSHE skills.

Recent trips included visits to the Natural History Museum, Rye Meads nature reserve, the Stevenage Fire Station, Pizza Express workshop and high ropes activities at Westmill Farm: A residential trip for year 5 and 6 takes place every year.
