Our curriculum

Our vision shapes our curriculum intentions

We exist to nurture and inspire our pupils to become the best version of themselves. We want to care for our families and achieve high academic standards in every year group.

 We live in an amazing town in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with an abundance of community groups and resources. We give back to our community and celebrate and care for our local environment, through participating in festivals, singing in care homes, taking field trips or by organising beach cleans.

We aim to develop knowledge, reading, writing and mathematics. We want our learners to be playful, creative, curious and engaged.

We offer a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities. We provide a broader range of sporting and musical opportunities than you might expect to find in a typical primary school. We love going on trips and having visitors, and we arrange a residential experience for each year group in Key Stage 2.

We are passionate about developing children’s character. We want our pupils to have a positive attitude to learning, think of others before themselves, and do a good deed every day. For example, we do a lot of eco work and raise a lot of money for charity.

Our curriculum is designed to inspire each pupil to flourish academically, emotionally, socially, physically and spiritually. We have a three part curriculum:

  • The ‘written curriculum’, where we are educating for wisdom. With reading as the main priority, we aim to develop pupils’ writing and mathematics, plus their knowledge and skill across all subject areas. We want pupils to know things but also be able to learn and think for themselves.
  • The ‘character curriculum’’, where we teach the basic principle of love and respect for creation and each and every person. We encourage our pupils to explore spirituality, to become agents of change, know their gifts and talents, and so learn how to approach the future with dignity and hope.
  • The wide range of opportunities we offer beyond the classroom. We engage in our local and wider community and live well together, embracing diversity and difference.  Our pupils participate in a wide range of clubs, trips, visits and residentials.
