Our curriculum is delivered in a cross curricular style by teaching reading and writing through a topic–usually book-based–whilst also developing key skills across the foundation subjects. It is engaging, exciting and meaningful.  We offer a curriculum in which the pupils have a say and are involved in the big picture.  It is a curriculum that is enriched by real life activities and supported by trips, events and visitors.  Our curriculum is reactive to current affairs in the community and the wider world. French is taught from FS2 (Reception) to Yr 6.  Additionally, all children engage in an afternoon of activities, known as ’50 Things to Do Before You Leave Hady’, which gives pupils opportunities to engage in different experiences such as touch typing, learning sign language, different arts and crafts or even making mud pies!

We develop the 6 R’s, which are resilience, responsibility, resourcefulness, reflectiveness, respect and readiness. Children know their own targets and are actively involved in improving their learning and identifying their strengths and weaknesses through effective marking and feedback.










Please find below details of the National Curriculum.  We are currently following Cycle A of our curriculum.
