The school’s curriculum encompasses all the content included in the National Curriculum but also offers the children a wealth of enrichment opportunities to ensure they enjoy their educational experiences, grow and develop their personal skills, maintain positive mental health, and become lifelong learners with an aspiration to succeed.
The school offers the children a theme based learning experience with six broad, whole school themes that run on a 2 year cycle. Each phase in the school (Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1, and Key Stage 2) then interpret the theme at the appropriate level for the children and the statutory curriculum requirements. Each theme is based around a key, quality text that has been carefully chosen as a stimulus for learning as well as to engage and challenge the children with high quality literature. It is important to us that the children enjoy learning and have fun at school and so lots of trips out and visitors to school are planned to engage and excite the children eg. visits to the theatre, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Hall Farm Park, the National Coal Mining Museum and visits by theatre companies.
