Our Big Questions drive enquiry-led learning journeys for each term. Learning across the curriculum is linked to our values of creativity, kindness and adventure with a strong PSHCE focus. The learning journeys help children to understand themselves and their relationships, their community and the wider world.
Our Core Texts stimulate creativity and curiosity, provide opportunities to broaden vocabulary and encourage a desire to read for pleasure. They also expose children to the wider world beyond their classroom, whilst enabling them to see their role within it.
Our curriculum is further enhanced by the opportunities available to a school situated in the world-renowned city of dreaming spires. We make use of our immediate and local environment for learning outside the classroom, with a wide range of trips, visits, visitors and extra-curricular experiences which provide broad and balanced enrichment.
