Our curriculum

​We are proud of the curriculum experiences we offer to children of all ages.  We have a clear focus on developing not just physical, but also intellectual creativity.  There is more information in the school prospectus​, but you can view our curriculum plans and vision from the School Policies and Documents here.​

The most up to date information about curriculum plans for each year group can be found on their individual Year Group pages within the parent portal.  You will need your child's unique sign-in to access these.

Approach to Phonics

In Key Stage 1 we teach letters and sounds using the Phonics Bug phonics scheme.  

All parents of children in Foundation2, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a login to Phonics Bug online. Here you can access phonics decodable books that are at the right phase and level for each child, Class teachers will provide parents with the login details.

There are a number of resources online which parents can use to understand and help their children develop their understanding and language formation.  This YouTube video clip has clear guidance to the synthetic phonics sounds used in our lessons.

​​Pupil Premium

The school receives pupil premium funding from the government for a small group of identified children.  We have to report publicly the way in which this funding is spent.  You can read our report here.

Sports Premium

​The school receives sports premium funding to facilitate the school's Vision for Physical Education.  The details of the school's vision and how the money has been spent can be read in the Physical Education Vision Statement in the School Policies here.​
