The aims of our school curriculum are:
- to enable all children to learn and develop their skills to the best of their ability;
- to promote a positive attitude towards learning, so that children enjoy coming to school, and acquire a solid basis for lifelong learning;
- to teach children the basic skills of literacy, numeracy and information technology (ICT);
- to enable children to be creative and to develop their own thinking;
- to provide first-hand, hands-on experiences for the children both in school, outdoors and out of school;
- to teach children about the world around them, including how their environment and society have changed over time;
- to provide opportunities for children’s cultural development, particularly so that they understand better what it is to be part of multicultural Britain and an international citizen;
- to enable children to be positive citizens in society;
- to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum and the Locally Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education;
- to teach children to have an awareness of their own spiritual development, and to understand right from wrong;
- to help children understand the importance of truth and fairness, so that they grow up committed to equal opportunities for all;
- to enable children to have respect for themselves and high self-esteem, and to be able to live and work co-operatively with others.
