The National curriculum will form part of our wider whole school curriculum. Our curriculum will be reflective of the interests and needs of our pupils and will reflect the local area. We will seek to widen the pupils understanding of the wider world whilst celebrating the wonders of our local area.
We set no boundaries on pupils achievements, all will be encouraged to aim to be the best they can personally be and we will support all pupils in reaching and exceeding their personal aspirations.
We will set aspirational targets for pupils and support them in meeting their goals. We will stretch and challenge all pupils in their learning.
