The curriculum is firmly based on the national curriculum using milestones to establish high expectations and outcomes. It is a spaced curriculum interleaved with skills.
Our curriculum drivers are…
- Culture- linking to a growth mind-set culture, breaking pupils out of historical expectations, focus on HA, and aspirational standards
- Diversity- celebrating the diversity of the community, strong PSHE/SMSC curriculums
- Environment-which supports the pupils to learn independently, provide high expectations for vocabulary (tier 3 words) and the development of cultural capital (knowledge of the world) through high quality displays which the pupils interact with and make the most of planned incidental learning.
