We give children a broad and balanced curriculum that provides rich, stimulating learning experiences enhanced through first hand experiences, visits and visitors. We make great use of the local area to tailor the curriculum to meet the needs of the children in our area. We provide a curriculum that develops children academically, physically, and socially.
We use the National Curriculum programmes of study as the basis for the children’s learning. We follow a rolling programme using a topic based approach that links different areas of the curriculum. Each aspect of the subject is then differentiated to meet the needs of the children.
We have a Forest school learning environment complete with a fire pit, where children can enjoy outdoor learning experiences and cross curricular learning.
Autumn Term Learning Journeys
KS2 children travel to Mrs Ethelston's, Uplyme, one afternoon a week to join the curriculum enhancement programme. They join the Yr 3,4,5 & 6 classes and participate in 2 subjects which change termly. This gives them an opportunity to work in larger groups, study different topics and make new friends.
