We are a creative and forward thinking academy and our curriculum reflects this. Each area of the curriculum has a whole school policy and a scheme of work, currently being updated to reflect the new Primary Curriculum 2014 document. Our curriculum reflects the needs of the children whilst meeting the National Curriculum statutory requirements. Staff plan creative projects to encompass elements of the curriculum linked to core skills. The essential ‘core skills’ underpin all the work planned to ensure maximum impact on pupils’ progress. We operate a ‘2 year rolling programme’ for our curriculum coverage (2nd cycle 2013-14) which will allow greater opportunities for shared planning, creativity and collaboration within the EYFS, KS1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2 phases.
