Our Curriculum Values
Equity - All children have access to a rich and relevant curriculum.
Ambition - There are no limits to what any child can achieve.
Responsibility - Children are responsible for their learning, their actions and the impact of their actions on others and the world in which we live.
Self-worth - Children have a strong sense of who they are and have pride in their heritage and their community.
Fulfilment - Children flourish and are fulfilled emotionally, physically and academically.
We see our curriculum as a triad which we have articulated as ‘head, heart and hand’. The interplay of these three strands ensures that pupils have access to balanced, rounded learning experiences which help to develop successful, resilient, creative individuals.
We believe knowledge is important and how we apply our knowledge is what makes it powerful. Children need to acquire a broad cultural knowledge so that they can engage in and identify with the world in which they live.
