Curriculum Intent Statement


We provide a curriculum of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief where learning is irresistible and achievement for all is high. We want our pupils to leave us as successful, independent leaners, happy confident individuals and caring responsible citizens excited by challenge, change and possibility. Through our curriculum we promote a love of Reading and immerse children in a literacy rich curriculum where topics are linked by high quality texts. Topics begin with a launch and offer the pupils opportunity to develop their own questions to explore. Each curriculum area is carefully mapped to ensure progression of knowledge and skills. Throughout curriculum and through our extra-curricular provision we want all pupils and staff to ‘Live life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10) and to flourish both academically and personally whilst in our care.


Many of these areas of study are taught through cross-curricular in topics. As well as meeting National Curriculum objectives we make sure our curriculum also includes a wow factor, plenty of opportunities for SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development and regular references to British Values.
