We are passionate about reading and believe that confidence in reading ‘is one of the main resources we have for showing children what words can do.’ (Barrs and Cork, 2001).
From Early Years right through to Year 6, the children are taught to be fluent mathematicians who show great reasoning and problem solving skills.
We want to prepare our children for life in an increasingly scientific world. We want our children to foster concern and care for our environment and help them develop a growing understanding of scientific ideas.
We teach Geography as part of our Creative Curriculum. We adopt a creative approach fostering links with other curriculum subjects such as Science, History and English, to make learning both exciting and meaningful.
We believe that ‘a high-quality history education will help our pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding about Britain’s past and that of the wider world’.
All children, from any faith or culture, should feel welcomed into the school community and this is fostered through the learning and exposure to a variety of religions and worldviews.
We wish to inspire, engage and challenge pupils by equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art.
We want to engage and inspire the children by immersing them in a wide range of quality musical pieces. We aim to achieve this through our curriculum map, which promotes a cross curricular and creative approach to learning.
By highlighting and exposing children to the breadth of technology around them, we aim for them to understand how it has shaped the modern world and begin to inspire children to imagine what they could do in the future.
The Jigsaw PSHE sex and relationship education unit of work aims to give children their entitlement to information about relationships, puberty and human reproduction, appropriate to their ages and stages of development.
We believe that good quality PSHE education prepares children for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life, whilst also supporting the well-being of the children throughout their school career.
We want to prepare our children for life as citizens of a global community. By introducing our children to different languages at an early age, we want to spark the children’s interest in languages and develop their understanding of other cultures in the world around them.
Design and Technology
Our children develop skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms and food and are actively encouraged to think about issues such as sustainability and enterprise.
