The school follows the national curriculum and strategies. These are modified to meet the needs of the children on an individual basis to create an exciting and engaging curriculum. Outdoor learning plays a large part in the learning experience where appropriate.
There is a wireless internet system which enables access to ICT throughout the school, and children have access to laptops and iPads to support their learning.
PSHE is both taught as a discreet subject and integrated into all areas of the curriculum.
For PE lessons the children travel to “Sport in Desford” (an award winning community sport centre close by), use the school playing field or travel to the local leisure centre for swimming, climbing, football etc. During part of the year riding lessons are offered to the children as part of the PSHE/PE curriculum.
The children have access to a wide range of musical instruments and individual lessons will be offered. The school has 3 classrooms and two other learning spaces including a log cabin in the new developed sensory garden. There is also a purpose built children’s kitchen. We also form links with local schools on an ongoing basis.
“The curriculum is outstanding”
Ofsted May 2012
This year with have implemented the new 2014 Primary Curriculum. Below are links to download the separate curriculums we will be teaching over the next two years. They are split into Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key stage 2. We run a two year rolling programme. Sometimes children will be working at an age level that is above or below their actual age. As this is new, there may be changes as we go along, but we will keep you informed when we do.
