Curriculum and Learning
We are very proud of our "Mission Possible" Curriculum that engages, challenges and inspires the children across the school in their learning about the past and present, the near and far, the natural and the experimental as well as the arts and a wide range of sports. Our committed subject leads within the school are continually monitoring, evaluating, reviewing and updating their subjects alongside the class teachers to ensure that all the children are becoming valued and knowledgeable citizens of the world we live in.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment. We have two fully trained Designated Leads for Safeguarding who work alongside families to ensure we provide their children the best support available. We are fully committed to being an Inclusive School.
Our school stakeholders regularly update their knowledge and training in Safeguarding and are fully familiar with the most up to date requirements of safeguarding in the document "Keeping Children Safe in Education " (add links)
