Personal, Social and Health Education supports the development of emotional literacy and enables children to grow as well-rounded individuals who achieve emotional and physical well-being. This is further developed through the Physical Education curriculum. Research shows that there is a significant link between health and well-being and the likelihood of achieving better academically. This is central the school’s ethos.
Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development opportunities enrich learning and foster tolerance and understanding. Religious Education is an important aspect of learning in this area. Furthermore, our focus on the Global Dimension of learning enables learners to understand their place in the World. The Language Curriculum fosters intercultural understanding, as well as developing speaking, reading and writing skills. Children learn Spanish in Years 1 and 2 and French in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6
Science, History and Geography are seen as the drivers of the ‘non-core’ subject areas whilst the creative arts (Art and Design Technology) and the performing arts (music and dance) are seen as the enhancers.
An overview of the programmes of study for all subjects can be seen on the ‘class pages’ of our website.
Our ‘Thinking Great Ideas on Friday’ (TGIF) initiative supports creativity, collaboration and problem solving in a variety of contexts.
