In September 2014 the National Curriculum was updated and new expectations for each subject and year group were introduced. As a school we ensure that we teach all the statutory requirements. Since the introduction of the latest OFSTED framework in September 2019 we have reviewed the curriculum to ensure the Intent, Implementation and Impact is of high importance within our well-planned and progressive broad curriculum.



Our approach is to teach a broad and balanced  ‘Creative Curriculum’ as we believe in involving our children in their learning and equipping them with the skills they will need to achieve economic well-being when they leave education. Reading, writing and maths are seeded through our Creative Curriculum and we link different subjects together to make learning purposeful.  Our Curriculum is also based on 4 key drivers that are personal to our school and reflect the social and educational needs of our local area. Our key drivers are the focus of every theme of work which is developed through school - they are Enterprise, Aspiration, Mutual Respect and Tolerance and Resilience

Kagan structures are woven throughout our whole curriculum and used in most lessons as we believe a successful lesson/curriculum, is all about engagement. Different structures are used to increase class participation, positive social skills and pupil engagement therefore limiting teacher talk. The interactive lessons make learning fun. From year 1 to 6, children sit in a Kagan Team of 4 which is changed every half term, giving them a new team, shoulder and face partner every few weeks. These teams are made up of mixed ability, gender, ethnicity, and backgrounds. Our children work phenomenally together!
