We have identified the following ‘drivers’ for curriculum development at our school.
to place speech and communication at the heart of our curriculum enabling our children to speak confidently, appropriately and sensitively, learning through talk and deepening understanding through dialogue.
to develop our children’s horizons and understanding of a variety of lifestyles within a broad, cultural curriculum
to develop our wish to be a central part of the local, national and world community
to continue to reinforce that we value the environment and feel passionate about its management
to encourage our children to be inquisitive, to ask questions and be resourceful, persistent and independent in their learning.
because children need to learn to assess and manage risks by having fun and a little bit of danger!
to support our children in developing more independence and the opportunity to show initiative
Our curriculum endeavours to support our school mission and values:
Our mission is to achieve our best
