Through a broad and balanced curriculum, we aim to inspire children and support them in being ambitious by teaching them about the wider world and communities, of which they are a part, while also developing their understanding of our locality. We base our curriculum in our three core school values of Community, Respect and Perseverance and we make constant and meaningful connections between these and the children's learning.
Community – our curriculum supports our aim of ensuring children have a strong sense of identity and inclusion by developing their knowledge and understanding of the local and wider communities of which they are a part. Curriculum coverage therefore includes local studies to foster children’s sense of belonging and also national and international studies to broaden children’s horizons, ambitions and aspirations.
Respect – our curriculum content develops children’s knowledge and understanding of the modern world, along with past events, enabling them to better understand and respect everyone and to celebrate spiritual and cultural differences.
Perseverance – by providing a challenging curriculum in which there is a clear progression of children’s knowledge, skills and understanding throughout the school, we encourage children to persevere in their learning and all aspects of their lives in order that they leave primary school fully equipped for the future with strong literacy and communication skills, fluency in the fundamentals of Mathematics and a broad general knowledge.
Our values based curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all pupils, including those with special educational needs or disabilities and it provides all learners with a range of experiences and cultural capital.
As a Church of England school, we have strong links with the local Church, Holy Trinity where we perform our Christmas plays each year and visit for special services and learning opportunities. Our Christian ethos also runs through all areas of our curriculum and our daily Collective Worship allows time for reflection on each week's theme, local and global current affairs and the British Values we uphold.
All children participate in a range of sporting and musical activities. In addition to our curriculum lessons, we have weekly singing lessons throughout the school and were recently awarded the Gold Award for excellence in music provision by the Shropshire Music Hub. We offer a variety of lunch time and after school sports clubs, resulting in the award of The School Games Silver Kite Mark, recognising the quality of our PE offer and extra-curricular sporting opportunities.
Our pupils also take part in outward bound activities and relish all outdoor learning opportunities, with the Early Years Foundation Stage and Year 1 pupils enjoying weekly Forest Schools sessions and the Year 6 pupils visiting Arthog for a residential visit each year. All year groups make at least one trip away from the school premises each year to extend their learning as well as to have fun and to take part in enriching experiences!
