A flying start...




Curriculum intent:

We believe that all children should be inspired and engaged by an ambitious and exciting curriculum.  We will take them on a journey to gain knowledge and practise and apply new skills, deepening their understanding and developing a lifelong love of learning. 


At the core of each curriculum journey, we will provide opportunities to ensure that children develop a love of reading and a strong command of the spoken and written word. We will also enable them to develop deep conceptual understanding of mathematics and be able to reason and solve problems with fluency and confidence.


We aim to develop the whole child helping them to become respectful and tolerant members of society with confidence & belief in their own ability.  We will teach them how to become resilient & independent learners who learn from mistakes and know how to help themselves improve so they are ready for the next step in their own learning journey.

We believe that children learn best when ...

  • They are happy and safe where emotional needs are supported.
  • The curriculum is delivered in an engaging, relevant and exciting way.
  • They have enough time to experience, reflect and apply learning in a new context.
  • There is good rapport with adults and peers.
  • They see examples of excellence.
  • They are given constructive feedback, recognition and praise.
  • They are given opportunity  to learn through a variety of ways.
  • They have opportunities to discuss.
  • They learn from mistakes.
  • They are given appropriate challenge.
