Curriculum

Curriculum Development Planning 2015-2016

Developing pupil leadership is a strong strand of our continuing school development plan; Inspiring Minds and Shaping Futures remains at the heart of our work. Within that vision, we see a responsibility to support our pupils to become ethical, caring young people.

As a Values school, this approach is already established within our work. But this year, we have decided to enhance our work in this area by joining the ‘Global Learning Programme’. You can find out more about this on the Global Learning website here https://globaldimension.org.uk/glp/

Our Teacher Education Day on the 4th January will be dedicated to training and planning how to further embed this vision within the experience we offer pupils at our school.


A new national curriculum came into force for state schools in England from September 1st 2014. Below you will find useful information regarding the content of the new curriculum.

Overview Documents for the new National Curriculum 2014

Please note: for schools which have more than one year group in the class, as we do,  then where content is specified for a particular year, coverage is expected to be organised on a rolling programme. This might mean that some specific topics eg Y1 Geography, may not always be covered in the allocated year, but will be covered in the correct school phase (KS1, Lower KS2 or Upper KS2)

Mrs Throup and Mrs Conner have undertaken training, and are now qualified Thrive Practitioners. They work with small groups and individuals, and advise teachers on whole-class strategies to strengthen emotional resilience.
