The school has developed its own unique curriculum based on the objectives set out in the National Curriculum (2014). The management team have worked with staff to produce a thematic curriculum based on the specific needs of the children, as well as the strengths of individual staff members. Mr Oldfield, our Headteacher, designs the key stage 2 curriculum and Mrs Jones, our key stage 1 leader, designs the curriculum for the younger children.
