We believe that the curriculum should stimulate enjoyment and commitment to learning as a means to encourage the best possible progress and the highest attainment for all pupils; preparing them effectively for the next steps in their education.
The school’s rich curriculum engages pupils and they enjoy their learning, such as chances to write in all subjects and completing lots of art work. Pupils talk enthusiastically about creating their own games using electronic devices and taking part in sporting activities. Pupils are taught about global citizenship and how they all fit into the wider world. For example, they enjoy making links with a school in Brazil. The broad and balanced curriculum is strengthened by a wide range of after-school activities which make an invaluable contribution to pupils’ academic and personal development.
Subject leaders have worked hard to implement the new national curriculum. They know their subjects well and are involved in monitoring standards. Action plans are in place to ensure that standards continue to improve and staff are well supported with appropriate training.
Pupils are very well prepared for life in modern Britain. They have time to reflect on their feelings and experiences, considering the rights of themselves and others, which has a very positive effect on their well-being and is helping to remove barriers to pupils achieving their potential. Pupils’ work shows their good awareness of values, such as respect, tolerance, respecting differences and being kind. There is a strong appreciation of the arts, including trips to the Royal Ballet and the Royal Opera House. Also, the study of world faiths and religions helps to ensure that pupils’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural awareness is well developed.
