Education is a life-long process and we aim to help the children to achieve their full potential and to acquire the concepts, knowledge, skills and attitudes that will equip them for life in a fast changing world.
As a school we ensure that the National Curriculum for England is followed. We tailor the curriculum to ensure it is broad and balanced, offering a range of experiences, which are relevant to the children’s present and future interests and needs. You can find out more about the National Curriculum here: The National Curriculum in England.
The curriculum is designed to achieve high standards through a relevant, challenging and imaginative programme which includes as much first-hand experience as possible. We use high quality and engaging texts as a base for all areas of our curriculum. Teachers are inspired by the ‘Power of Reading’ teaching sequences which have been developed by the ‘Centre for Literacy in Primary Education’.
You can see how our curriculum is mapped out for the academic year here: Whole School Curriculum Overview 2017-2018 and a more detailed termly breakdown is available in our ‘What are we learning?’ area.
We prioritise the development of children intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically, aesthetically and morally. This enables them to become as numerate and literate as possible, to reach their full potential and to experience full and useful lives, both now and in the future.
Children are provided with active, enjoyable and stimulating learning experiences in a secure, happy and caring environment where each individual is valued and respected.
We aim to provide each child with opportunities to experience success and achievement and to develop a positive self-image. This is supported through our whole school values; Respect, Tolerance, Self-Belief & Determination and our PSHE curriculum which has been developed by Ealing Local Authority and tailored to the needs of our pupils.
We have an ethos and curriculum which promote equality of opportunity and freedom from discrimination on the grounds of race, gender, creed, class or ability. We emphasise co-operation and respect for one another at all times.
