  • encourage questions as much as it seeks answers
  • be adaptable, current, dynamic and responsive
  • fill the gaps in individuals’ knowledge, understanding and skills
  • develop skills and the acquisition of knowledge through a wide range of curricular and extracurricular experiences making effective use of visitors and visits
  • allow the adults to share their noble passions

Our SMSC/PHSE/RSE Curriculum intent is to:

  • be underpinned by our Christian Core Values and school’s vision and values
  • be child centred
  • challenge and support children’s thinking whilst being playful
  • provide time for reflection
  • keep safeguarding at its heart
  • be realistic, current and relevant
  • support positive social norms
  • link this aspect of the curriculum to other whole school aspects of the curriculum
  • enrich the learning experiences through new technologies, assemblies, visits and visitors
  • promote British values
  • provide a learning environment which supports access to this aspect of the whole school curriculum
  • celebrate diversity and be inclusive using resources that are representative

We have a curriculum map which is based on the National Curriculum  - the curriculum map is planned on a 4 year cycle for each of the year groups across the school.  Even though we have classes with a whole Key Stage in them, the children visit each topic area once in their time in our school.  Our teachers are skilled at allowing the same topic learning to happen across each class, encouraging the children to choose the level of challenge that they are confident about working at.

If you require any other information about the curriculum and learning that takes place in our school, please do contact school and we can arrange for paper copies to be made available.
