Our curriculum is driven by our REACH values and by our desire to prepare our learners of today for tomorrow's world. We aim to inspire and motivate pupils while providing for their academic, moral, physical, creative, personal and social development. Children learn through a careful balance of specific teaching programmes and a topic based approach.
Throughout Key Stage 1, we recognise the importance of making links across the curriculum. Lessons are designed to ensure pupils acquire knowledge and skills and have opportunities to recall, practise and apply their skills in a range of contexts and commit their learning to the long term memory. We encourage co-operative work, talk, discussion and enjoyment as vehicles for learning in all subjects.
This year we find ourselves in a new and unusual situation having welcomed our pupils back to school after a significant amount of time away from school and possibly learning. We have developed our 'Recovery Curriculum' to structure our approach to engaging children back into learning.
