Our Creative Curriculum

(For further information please contact Curriculum Leader: Mr M Connell, email:

Our Creative Curriculum is tailor made, encompassing our children’s own interests, making use of the fantastic learning resources on our doorstep and far exceeding national requirements.

Children are involved in the choice of topics around which the year’s curriculum is woven. In addition, our children influence the detail within a topic which may change depending on the group make up. Experienced teachers and subject leaders ensure a clear progression of skills is taught within a bespoke, stimulating, broad and inspiring curriculum.


The Creative Curriculum also provides our children with rich opportunities to apply basic skills taught in English and Mathematics.  It allows them to see how knowledge and skills from different subjects overlap and support learning across the curriculum.


In addition to ensuring children achieve high standards in the traditional core subjects, we are committed to developing skills for life. We address aspects of Global Awareness, Citizenship, developing enterprise and aspirations and looking at relationships and health. Children are also given explicit opportunities to develop positive dispositions for success such as confidence, independence, respect and curiosity.
