Our school has developed its own ‘Creative Curriculum’, which is based on the National Curriculum.

The Creative Curriculum
Our ‘Creative Curriculum’, which is taught in a two-year rolling programme, aims to foster a life-long love of learning, through adopting a practical and cross-curricular approach to learning.
At every opportunity we aim to connect learning, and give children real-life experiences that they can relate their learning to. We plan using progressive skills in all subjects. These skills underpin everything we do and we believe that if we rigorously drive home knowledge and skills then our children will have the tools needed to be successful independent learners for life.
We also free up additional time in the school day to enrich our children’s learning – our teachers have real freedom to own the curriculum and be truly creative with the learning experiences they give their children. They offer additional opportunities such as French teaching, outdoor lessons and whole class instrumental lessons.
