We have a skills led curriculum which is underpinned by our values and focusses on topics which we feel will inspire and motivate our children because they are more relevant to real life. We teach a few subjects discretely, everything else is taught through projects.

The curriculum is designed to be flexible and to respond to the learning needs and interests of individual groups of children.

We have developed a special Hub page for your child’s year group. Here you can access all the latest news and dates related to your child, as well as find information related to current school projects and learning. We hope you enjoy this new feature of our website.
