Learning in school

Photo of English working wall displayWe are committed to providing a broad, balanced, exciting and challenging curriculum that meets the needs of all our children.

We recognise that all children have different strengths and abilities and that it is important that they are given the opportunity to achieve both academically and in the wider aspects of school life.

To help us achieve these aims and ambitions we develop a yearly overview plan for each year group. A summary of each year group’s learning plan can be found in the pages within this section, along with a link to download the full year plan.
