Partial closure (Y5 and Y6 only in school) for Wednesday 18th, Thursday 19th March and Friday 20th March


What is the purpose of our curriculum?

Love to Learn

  • We nurture well-read, shrewd, informed, enquiring and enthusiastic readers and writers, who are articulate speakers and assiduous listeners.  Pupils explore reading material and other media accessible to them.
  • We ensure coverage of all aspects of the English National Curriculum alongside the above.
  • Our use of the Accelerated Reader program helps motivate readers to broaden their reading content and to strive to be the best reader (and thus writer) that they can be.


Learn to Live

  • Reading for pleasure is at the core of learning in English, and thus across all subject areas - Creative Thinker. 
  • We ensure high quality texts provide the opportunity for learners to become purposeful, motivated and confident writers and orators - Effective Participator.
  • Pupils discuss how characters interact with one another and how this may be honourable; pupils are able to present their work to one another and doing so courteously - Team Worker.


Live to Love

  • We passionately develop a love of literature within our pupils which they will take with them beyond their middle school education - Honour.

Drop Everything and Read is our cross-curricular drive for reading for pleasure, promoting literature and a love of reading across all subject areas - Inquisitiveness.
