To be the best we can be
Our vision is to give children
the knowledge and skills
to be successful by
being the best they can be.
Led by Christ, we follow in Jesus’ footsteps, seeking to be
the best we can be.
We learn and grow, we are ready to learn and aim for success.
Together in God’s family, we love and respect
everyone we meet
here at school.
Our Curriculum Implementation
Teachers are knowledgeable about the content of the curriculum they are teaching. They aim to deliver key concepts or new learning using approaches best suited to individual children’s needs in order to enable pupils to understand it.
Subsequently teachers offer opportunities for pupils to embed learning in their long term memory through revisiting it, building on it, practising the skills learned and applying them with increasing confidence. The highest possible standards of children’s learning are promoted through clear teaching objectives, effective and consistent recording, monitoring and assessment.
During lessons teachers monitor pupils’ understanding and address any misunderstandings immediately to ensure that children keep pace with their peers. Formative assessment of children’s progress is carried out regularly and this is used to inform teacher’s planning.
You can see the content of the curriculum in each year group on the website, either through the Class Curriculum Overviews, or in the detailed Subject Curriculum Maps. Parents can also use the Curriculum Book to learn more.
At the start of each term parents are invited to a curriculum meeting with the class teacher to discuss the topics for the term.
We have a thorough early reading and writing curriculum following the Read Write Inc. Programme for teaching phonics. The development of children’s reading skills continues to be a key focus in subsequent years, ensuring that children build up fluency, understanding and enjoyment.
