Our curriculum has been carefully crafted, developed and structured to ensure high levels of engagement, enjoyment and personal development from each child, to help them achieve their best possible academic standards, regardless of ability. We aim to provide a curriculum to develop inquisitive, independent thinkers with a love of learning. We understand that the curriculum, both within taught lessons and beyond them, should create an environment where questioning, academic risk-taking, divergent thinking and the freedom to learn from mistakes are all encouraged. The curriculum should be seen in its widest sense as the entire planned learning experience. This includes formal lessons as well as events, routines, and learning that take place outside the classroom. Wherever possible we use 'real life' learning opportunities, visits, visitors and the outdoor environment to enrich children's learning.
