Curriculum Overview

Our vision is to grow inquisitive and resilient learners who achieve academic success and are ready to embrace all opportunities, both now and in the future.

  • We want our pupils to be equipped to be resilient and active learners who independently find out and explore, problem solve, reflect and think critically.
  • We strive for all our pupils to be good communicators and have the essential literacy and numeracy skills to enable them to successfully access the next stage in their education.
  • We want our pupils to be self-aware and to take responsibility for themselves; to understand and value their whole self and their own personal strengths. Our pupils understand good mental health and are prepared with strategies to maintain self-care.
  • Our pupils are good citizens ready to take their place in a diverse and modern British society. They are respectful and accepting, show honesty and integrity and are empathetic towards others and the environment.
  • We aim to provide a rich and varied curriculum. embracing opportunities to develop cultural capital.
  • We want our families and pupils to engage and build active partnerships with local resources and communities.
  • Everyone in our school strives to grow and succeed every day.

Our Core Values are embedded throughout our curriculum: Respect, Resilience, Aspiration.

Our curriculum is designed with our vision, mission statements and core values in mind: it is personalised, reflecting the background and experience of our pupils; it sets learning in local and global contexts wherever possible; it celebrates diversity; and it is rooted in authenticity and context so that learning is relevant.
