Our school mission statement is
"Learning for Life"
This is underpinned by the following key drivers:
- Growth – realising our potential; access to a broad, ambitious curriculum
- Community – sharing and contributing; all parents, governors, other schools, the church and Diocese
- Spirituality – reflecting and thinking deeply as learners about what we learn and how
- Environment – appreciating local and global environments – where we all live and work, the wider world and our role within it
This is collectively known as GCSE.
From this we have designed our own Connected Curriculum Units for geography, history, art and DT.
We have purchased schemes for a number of areas which we adapt to make bespoke to our school. These include:
- White Rose Maths
- Snap Science
- Little Wandle
- Cambridge PE
- Knowsley Computing
- Catherine Cheater French
- Understanding Christianity and the Diocesan scheme
- Coram Life SCARF
- Jane Considine writing units
- Mantle of the Expert
- Charanga Music
Our Curriculum Provision is rooted in GCSE which:
- Is ambitious, connected and logically sequenced

- Is supported and enhanced by a range of visits and visitors where and whenever possible
- Fosters a love of learning in all pupils, develops positive attitudes, resilience and a sense of wonder at the world we live in
- Ensures all pupils achieve well in all aspects of the wider curriculum, making appropriate rates of personal progress so that they leave the school equipped for the next stage of their education
- Facilitates the acquisition of ideas, knowledge, mind sets and qualities of character, which will help them to develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically and morally
- Teaches care and respect for the world for future generations
- Promotes the strong ethos, based on Christian values and respect for all
- Ensures the statutory entitlement of every child to a balanced provision of all subjects within the National Curriculum is met, in addition to promoting the arts, sport and music as well as providing residential experience
- Complies with our duties in the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 in ensuring that the curriculum is accessible for those with disabilities or SEN
- Ensures equality of access for all pupils and prepares them for life in a diverse society;
- Uses materials that reflect the diversity of the school, population and local community in terms of race, gender and disability, without stereotyping;
- Promotes attitudes and values that will challenge racist and other discriminatory behaviour or prejudice;
- Provide opportunities for pupils to appreciate their own culture and celebrate the diversity of other cultures;
- Recognises that although we have created a curriculum for our school and for each cohort, with an ever-changing school population, also recognises that our curriculum will need to continue to evolve, if it is to continue to be effective and meet the needs of our children.
- Has all staff as subject leaders of several subjects and as a result immerses them in the curriculum design process, so that the personal subject knowledge of everyone becomes richer as a result, which enables everyone to be effective curriculum leaders.
