What does your child learn at school each day?


We are developing our curriculum to become based around enquiry-led pedagogy. As part of this development we are introducing ‘States of Being’ to empower learners. 

Subjects are taught through the following ‘States of Being’:
•    Authors – readers and writers
•    Mathematicians
•    Engineers (Computing and DT)
•    Athletes (PE)
•    Musicians
•    Geographers
•    Historians
•    Scientists
•    Artists
•    Philosophers (RE and PSHE)
•    Linguists (MFL)



We use a range of schemes to help us achieve our Intent. These schemes support how we implement our curriculum these include:


Understanding Christianity – RE

Curious Computing – Computing

White Rose – Maths

Little Wandle – SSP Phonics

Language Angels (New for September 2023) – MfL


Through CPD and coaching with Lighting Up Learning, the staff are able to implement the ‘Curious City Curriculum’ which encourages the children to ask and answer questions, learn from prior experiences and explore through challenges and enquiries.


Our curriculum is in line with the National Curriculum.  A copy of the framework document for primary schools can be found here:

Visit the class pages for more detailed information about the enquiry question each class is currently investigating.
