Reading lies at the heart of our curriculum since we recognise that the ability to read well has a significant impact on children’s future success including their self-esteem. Additionally, we feel that the ability to communicate fluently and confidently is vital to a child’s development and success. Our curriculum is designed to allow our children to develop their oracy skills not only their understanding of language but their confidence in orally presenting themselves fluently for different purposes for different audiences. We recognise that achievement is dependent on children’s personal development including good physical and mental health. Our curriculum is designed to teach the children the importance of making good decisions about their own physical health and wellbeing. We pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming school which lies in the heart of our community. Our curriculum is designed to teach our children the history of our area, the importance of community and how we can contribute and make a difference to other people’s lives.
Our aim is for all our children to leave us as resilient and confident life- long learners with a strong sense of self-awareness, thirst for knowledge and the ability to contribute positively to society.
We use the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds phonics scheme.
