Academic achievement

We have high expectations of academic achievement. Children are expected to work hard and recognise that each day at school provides the opportunity to gain new experiences, knowledge, understanding and skills. Children do better when parents/carers work closely with the school and we encourage parents/carers to take a keen interest in their children’s education, making learning a part of everyday life.

The National Curriculum

All children study the National Curriculum (introduced in September 2014) which offers a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated education. Pupils are taught the ‘core’ subjects of English, Mathematics and Science, and the ‘foundation’ subjects of History, Geography, Music, Art and Design. Physical Education (PE), Design and Technology (DT), Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE, which includes Sex and Relationships Education), and Religious Education (RE). Computing is taught across the curriculum.
