Curriculum Intent

As a Church of England school, our curriculum is led by our School Ethos and our School Vision. These permeate all aspects of school life and aim to help every child achieve their full potential by equipping them with a feeling of self-worth, a respectful attitude towards others, an excitement for learning,  an enthusiasm for life and an understanding of God.

Our curriculum is developed through a consideration of our particular context,  the needs of our particular children, considering what the local community can provide and how our parents and other stakeholders can support our curriculum.

We actively promote British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs to prepare our pupils for life in modern day Britain.

Our curriculum is developed in accordance with the statutory requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum, the EYFS curriculum, the Church of England statement of Entitlement (February 2019) , County and Diocesan guidance and the Locally Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.

It is recognised that every child has a different knowledge base and skill set, as well as varying aptitudes and aspirations and that, as a result, there is a determination for every young person’s needs to be assessed and their talents developed through diverse teaching strategies.

Each curriculum area is overseen by a subject leader, supported by a second member of staff who map out the Intent, implementation and impact of their subject.

Each subject has a linked Governor who helps champion and monitor the subject.
