Curriculum

On this section of our school website you will be able to find out about the curriculum that is taught throughout the school. The curriculum is the collection of subjects that are taught to your children. Within this section you should be able to find out WHAT we teach, WHEN we teach it and HOW we teach it. As a Local Authority Voluntary Aided School we follow the National Curriculum which was published by the Department for Education in 2014. We will add links into this section so that you can see the National Curriculum and how we have designed our curriculum around it.
