Our curriculum is organised into Modules, each lasting for 6 weeks (approximately half a term). When possible the work is taught in linked topics but where necessary work is taught in separate subjects. The Modules are designed so that the National Curriculum is covered in a way which meets the needs and abilities of the children. They are also designed to be interesting and exciting.
Each of the Modules incorporates a 'Golden Thread'. In the majority of modules the Golden Thread is a question for the children to think about that develops a wider understanding of the National Curriculum information covered in the module and make additional links to the World they live in. In the main, this will build upon our work about being a a good citizen and develop the idea of compassion and understanding of others.
Children are assessed by staff on an on-going basis with some formal testing each year. This information allows us to gain a useful general picture of each child's ability and attainment and helps us build the learning to match the needs of the children.
School works to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, aiming to educate the whole child. All children belong to a team in School and will take part in activities to earn points for their team.
