Staff and Governors Aim:

  • To develop the potential of every child through a broad, balanced and structured Curriculum.
  • To prepare children for a fulfilling adult life as responsible members of society.
  • To help children to understand the world in which they live, and to be aware of and have regard for other people and places.
  • To encourage respect for religious and moral values and tolerance of all races, religions and ways of life.

Organisation and Content of the Curriculum

Planning, Preparation and Assessment time (PPA) is a legal entitlement for all teaching staff. All class teachers, both full-time and part-time, are be entitled to 10% non-contact time.

The National Curriculum Core Subjects, will be taught to the attainment targets and programmes of study set out in the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) Guidelines.

Curriculum Policy

The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their full potential.

Monitoring and Evaluating the Progress of Pupils

In our school we plan learning and teaching with a view to enabling each child to seek the highest level of personal achievement. To ensure that this happens, we regularly monitor the actions we have taken, so that we are in a position to make a judgement about how effective these actions have been. This gives us information on which we can base future decisions about the development of the school.
