This also serves as our Teaching & Learning Policy.  Our Curriculum will:

  • teach children to gain the  knowledge and skills, responsibility and integrity to enjoy fullness of life
  • develop intrinsic motivation to make their own impactful choices at a personal, local and global level.

Following the pandemic, we have spent time working on our ethos documents, to ensure that children are all supported following this challenging time. We ensure that our curriculum subjects all endeavour to use these points to provide the highest quality learning for every child:

  • Developing independence
  • Supporting self-regulation
  • Enhancing direct teaching and repeated practice
  • Actively supporting wellbeing
  • Promoting diversity and identity
  • Researching evidence based practice
  • Facilitating playful learning
  • Empowering responsible earth awareness
  • Sharing child-influenced experiences
  • Motivating through outdoor learning
  • Working together as a Church School community
  • Championing inclusivity

As Church of England Voluntary Controlled Schools, we also use our values to guide us emotionally and spiritually:

Our parents say
“From the wonderful music, art and drama provision through to the outstanding forest school sessions, all children’s needs are met in an uplifting and stimulating environment.”
