Creative Curriculum


This is our creative way of delivering the New National Curriculum which encourages a climate for children to explore, learn and apply their knowledge and skills in original ways and with purpose. This is achieved through termly or half termly themes, culminating in opportunities for children to exhibit their achievements for parents and carers in weekly assemblies and events throughout the year. It also includes practical and active approaches, visits and visitors, cultural events, global links and care for the environment.

All children are encouraged to aim high and are supported to achieve to their maximum in all areas of the curriculum.  We celebrate all achievements in school and outside, including hobbies, clubs, sporting, and of the arts in our weekly achievers assembly.  We believe that every child must succeed and our curriculum is organised to help children to achieve to the highest standards in all areas.  The creative curriculum develops imagination, flexibility, curiosity, independence, investigation and problem solving.  In this way children can achieve in reading, writing and maths and become creative learners, who are inquisitive, risk takers, self- motivated, and independent.

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural achievement is highly developed through the teaching and learning in the creative curriculum.  PSHE and citizenship are also vital aspects of our provision to achieve the best outcomes for all children and we also promote the social and emotional aspects of learning (SEAL) to enable children to be the best they can be.
