Curriculum Overview

 

British values (click on the link to understand more about British values in primary schools) are also something that we hold as important in our community primary school and we work hard to ensure our children understand and celebrate their cultural heritage diversity whilst understanding their commitment to being British in the 21st Century. British values are: 

  • democracy
  • the rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith

We use White Rose planning (click on picture link to find out more about White Rose Mathematics) for our mathematic lessons, which is a government funded, teacher-centred planning approach to support teachers in planning meaningful, practical mathematics, which encourages the children to think deeper and really embed understanding of key concepts rather than encourage them to race through mathematics at a superficial level.

 

If you are a parent or carer and would like to know more about your child's curriculum talk to their class teacher in the first instance.
