OUR CURRICULUM

Our curriculum is bespoke to our school and children and offers a rich and memorable range of learning experiences. Exciting and varied lessons (including outings and visitors) are planned to ensure the children are engaged and enjoy their learning.

It is important to us that our curriculum reflects our community and we work hard to incorporate our environment into the curriculum, whilst also ensuring children learn about the wider world.

Our EYFS unit offers varied and exciting activities that have been planned through children's interests. This results in children being motivated, engaged and able to deepen their understanding and knowledge. Along with a developing outdoor area, which is used to maximise learning and give children first hand experiences of the natural world around us.

The 2014 National Curriculum subjects are taught throughout the school. Core subjects are: English, Mathematics, Science and Computing, as well as Religious Education. Our religious education is taught in accordance with the Cumbria agreed syllabus. Foundation subjects are History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Music and P.E.

As a school, we are committed to providing opportunities for curriculum enrichment. We draw on the strengths and talents of the staff to support this and to help develop pupils' spiritual, moral, cultural, social as well as their physical, artistic and mental well-being. After school clubs offer the children opportunities to learn new and different skills and mix socially with other pupils.

The school works hard to uses strategies within the national curriculum and beyond to secure British Values outcomes for our children. This includes running a School Council, and having school representatives such as 'young sports leaders' and 'playground buddies'.

Quality pastoral care is promoted through our day-to-day teaching and learning in school, fostering positive attitudes and encouraging personal and social development. We have clearly defined roles and responsibilities to ensure student well-being. An experienced staff member manages two nurture group sessions per week to address barriers to learning.
