Curriculum aims

Our curriculum aims to be genuinely university prepartory, enabling our pupils to be highly successful in academic study at 18 and beyond. In order to achieve this goal, we need to establish mastery of English and mathematics in our pupils from a young age. Our prioritisation of the Read, Write, Inc Phonics programme at the outset of primary school (with 5 full lessons a week in Years R, 1 and 2) supported by remedial catch up phonics where required after Year 2. In Maths we utlise Ark's successful Maths Mastery programme, and aim to prepare pupils to be able to be fluent in the skills, and inspired by the power and complexity of mathematics from a young age.

As well as focusing on master of numeracy and literacy, we aim to provide our pupils with opportunities to develop their characters to be able to be successful in the future. By focusing on our values of perserverance, aspiration and working together, we will celebrate and foster behaviours and attitudes which will lead to happiness and success. Through sports, music, competition and trips out of school our pupils will develop confidence and determination.
