Governors Curriculum Statement:

The Education Reform Act 1988 requires by law that schools provide pupils with a curriculum that :-

  • Is balanced, broadly based, relevant and differentiated;
  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of children;
  • Prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

These are central to the beliefs of the Governors of the school.

At this school, the Governors aim to provide a curriculum appropriate to the needs of all of its pupils. On entering the full-time education and throughout their time in school, children will follow the programmes of study that ensure that all subjects of the National Curriculum are covered. In addition to National Curriculum subjects Religious Education is also taught.

It is the Governors’ aim that all children achieve their potential in every aspect of school life in an atmosphere of partnership and support.
