School

When planning our curriculum we believe that children learn best when they are at the centre of learning and that there is consistency and continuity in our approach. It is important that our pupils receive a broad and balanced curriculum and our practice should provide an integrated, holistic approach which supports the individual learning needs of everyone we work with. We aim to ensure our pupils make progress in a wide variety of ways, including their skills, knowledge and understanding of the world, but our ultimate aim is to ensure the transition of meaningful skills into a range of situations that prepare our pupils for life in the 21st century.
