Learn to let your light shine



Our vision 'Learn to let your light shine'  drives our curriculum and the decisions we make. 


Our curriculum aims to ensure that children are really engaged in learning. We endeavour to enthuse our children to want to find out more, to develop the important skills of problem solving, enquiry, creativity, independence, motivation and good self esteem. We strive to make sure that children leave our school with the essentials for learning and life.

We use the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum as the basis for our curriculum. Detailed Long Term Plans for each subject are available from the Subject pages on the Curriculum dropdown menu.

Within the framework of our curriculum we ensure our children are taught the basic skills of reading, writing and Maths to a high standard.



We use a system of synthetic phonics following the 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised' scheme to teach early reading and give the children the vital skills they need to be able spell. All children have focused daily phonics lessons linked to reading and application of phonics into writing. Children also read daily and we do everything we can to ensure they leave our school with a love of reading. To do this we incorporate regular visits to the local library, visits into school from storytellers and authors as well as providing children with a wealth of engaging reading books in school.  


We use the mastery approach to teaching Maths. The children are taught the basic Maths skills and then how to apply these into problems through the White Rose Maths scheme.
