*PSHCE stands for personal, social, health, citizenship and economic education.  You will also find information in this section about Sex & Relationship Education (SRE) and Drug Education.

Special Educational Needs

The curriculum is planned through a whole school approach to curriculum planning, taking into account progression and differentiation.  The work for some children is supported by Basic Entitlement and IEPs which teachers use as part of their daily planning.  Additional support and intervention is provided for identified groups and individuals.  Children with an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) are supported in accordance with their identified provision and recognised need.  For more information, please go to our SEND section.

Early Years Foundation Stage

There are seven areas of learning and development.

All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.  Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.

These three areas, the prime areas, are:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development.

Additionally there are four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied.  The specific areas are:

  • literacy;
  • mathematics;
  • understanding the world; and
  • expressive arts and design.
Curriculum Enhancement

The curriculum is enhanced by using visits and speakers whenever possible.  We aim that each class should have one of these enhanced opportunities each half term. Each year there is an opportunity for the children to enjoy some form of theatre experience.

There are opportunities for the children to take responsibilities within their class and the whole school. 

The school offers a variety of clubs for children to participate in during and after school.  These include Football, Basket Ball, Cricket, Boogie Pumps,and Choir.
