Our main aims when delivering the curriculum are to:
- Plan and teach to the requirements of the national curriculum offering children stimulating and challenging experiences, preparing them positively for life in modern Britain and promoting the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
- Use the national curriculum framework as an outline of core knowledge on which to develop exciting and stimulating lessons promoting the development of children’s knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.
- Inspire children to want to learn, investigate and explore each curriculum area.
- Enable children to develop a respect and tolerance for a diversity of people, religions, social and moral values.
- Equip each child with the necessary skills to become a fluent reader and promote a love of books and reading.
- Teach mathematical skills, knowledge, concepts and develop children’s ability and understanding to apply these effectively across the curriculum.
- Encourage good handwriting, accurate spelling, speaking and listening skills and the correct use of grammar.
- Enable children to acquire scientific and technological skills, knowledge and awareness, so they are well equipped to thrive in an ever changing technological world.
