School Curriculum

The school’s policy is to provide a broad, balanced education which is delivered through a knowledge and skills-based creative curriculum, ensuring that equal opportunities are given to all children. We follow the programmes of study as laid down in the National Curriculum. Full details about our themed approach to lessons across the different year groups can be found in our Prospectus.

We have a set of pages dedicated to the Curriculum, found in our main menu above.

Pupil Premium and Sports Premium

The pupil premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement. The three identified groups are: pupils who are entitled to free school meals, pupils who have a parent working for the armed services and those children in local authority care. 

The funding received has been used in a variety of ways in order to improve attainment and progress and to help overcome barriers to learning.

We know that children learn best when they are happy, secure, confident, valued, and fully included in school life. Our use of pupil premium funding takes account of wide considerations. We believe that raising standards is best achieved by ensuring that children have reasonable access to all that a school has to offer.
