The curriculum in our school is designed to provide a range of resources and educational opportunities which promote learning, personal growth and development. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which is engaging, creative and provides challenges and opportunities to promote children’s learning and respond to a range of diverse needs. Our curriculum encompasses a range of experiences to prepares pupil for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life and reflects the inclusion and equality requirements as set in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014 and Equality Act 2010
The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that are planned for our pupils and reflects the requirements of the National Curriculum and the Academies Act 2010. In Reception classes they follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Our planning also makes provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE).

The teaching of British Values is a key focus throughout school. It is taught explicitly through PSHE, weekly assemblies and through a range of different topic areas within each year group. We link British Values with local, national and international news items.
The main themes are;
- Rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect
- Tolerance of others
