The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. It includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential. We aim to deliver a broad and balanced, creative curriculum which reflects our Christian school ethos and our understanding of how children learn best.
We value the way in which all children are unique, and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual child, as well as for people of all cultures.
We value the spiritual and moral development of each person, as well as their intellectual and physical growth. Our curriculum is underpinned by the Christian ethos of our school.
We value the importance of each person in our community. We organise our curriculum so that we promote co-operation and understanding between all members of our community. We respect each child in our school and treat them with fairness and honesty. We aim to enable each person to be successful, and we provide equal opportunities for all the children in our school.
We value our environment, and we aim, through our curriculum and especially our forest schools learning to teach respect for our world, and how we should care for it for future generations, as well as our own.
