Curriculum

‘…the school has developed a rich and relevant curriculum which has an excellent impact on children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and combines subjects together very well through a cross-curricular approach to learning. Pupils say that this approach makes lessons interesting and enjoyable and provides them with a range of structured opportunities to develop new skills.’
Ofsted 2012

Our curriculum is underpinned by our school values of:

  • Courage
  • Respect
  • Kindness
  • Creativity
  • Independence
  • Love

We have chosen to follow the IPC (International Primary Curriculum), as we feel it provides our children with a vibrant, relevant, exciting, active and meaningful way of learning. Learning with the IPC takes a global approach; helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at the learning from the perspective of other people in other countries.
