Our Curriculum

In designing our curriculum, our intention is to offer a broad range of learning to develop the 'future custodians of God's world'  with 'C21st aspirations.'  Our 'traditional values, rooted in Christian faith' are equally important to us and our aim all the time is to 'nurture happy, healthy individuals who are socially engaged and curious about life in and beyond their own community'.  Our full 'vision statement' can be viewed here.

In implementing our curriculum, we have considered the following key themes and subjects which link to our vision:

Christian Ethos 'traditional values rooted in Christian faith' RE, Collective Worship

Theme Days

Theme days and visits are a wonderful way to enhance learning. Children have enjoyed opportunities to engage in learning through activities such as, World War 2 VE Day concert,  Supertato Mystery Day or Greek Day.  This allows children a wide variety of cross-curricular learning in an enjoyable and interactive way.

We also have many visitors who come to school to help us with our learning, offering the children an invaluable insight through their expertise, such as:

- guide dogs

- firefighters

- Archbishop Sentamu

- Road safety team.

Visits

School visits linked to our topics are undertaken by all classes throughout the year.  They are a crucial way of helping learn about different cultures, places and times.  Recent visits our children have experienced include York Minister, the Holocaust Centre and Bradford Mosque, 

Residentials

Older children also have the chance to participate in residentials, with Year 5 going to Herd Farm and Year 6 to Cober Hill. We feel that these are important events in children's develpment where they discover many important life skills like teamwork and problem solving, as well as experiencing the independence of being away from home.
