Children learn through a thematic approach that still maintains the integrity of subject disciplines. Our children will develop a rich vocabulary through their curriculum, with clear, planned progression, that underpins the concepts studied. 

Our curriculum prepares our children to live in their world and be able to contribute as knowledgeable and responsible citizens. Our curriculum contributes to the legacy that we give to the world through the generations of children that move through our school. 

We feel a strong moral imperative towards our disadvantaged children; knowledge is empowering and our disadvantaged children are entitled to an education that builds cultural capital and gives them access to the knowledge that they need to succeed. 

Learning in our school is underpinned by our distinctively Christian nature and our school values; those of kindness, trust, respect and love for each other and the world around them. We strive to reflect this in everything we do, as well as in our curriculum development. 

In our academy, we teach the National Curriculum through our 21 learning themes over seven years. These are planned on a rolling programme to take account of our mixed age classes and ensure that full curriculum coverage is in place. We also make sure that our RE curriculum coverage is also planned in this way.
