We believe children should remember their school days with affection and central to this is an inspirational curriculum providing the children with a memorable learning experience enabling high quality learning.
In the early years we concentrate on independent learning, co-operation and problem solving skills coupled with a sharp focus on literacy and mathematics that become the cornerstones of success.
We carefully plan whole school learning events, immersing pupils in concrete learning, whilst fostering a sense of community. We challenge the staff and pupils for instance to turn the school into a Zoo with the local farming community, with York Museums we discovered the bones of several large dinosaurs on the moors above school, turning the school into a museum and displaying the fossils.
We expect all our pupils to take part in the wide range of outdoor and extra curricular activities that we offer - supporting them to develop their confidence and self esteem.
Our children regularly take part in sporting competitions, where we develop resilience, inner strength and a sense of fair play, as we compete against the many larger schools across the district.
We host visiting musicians, bands and ensembles from around the world on a regular basis and strongly support all our children's musical, sporting and academic endeavours.
We routinely visit places of interest linked to our curriculum and have visitors into school, such as Vikings, Romans and the British Legion. Residentials to Outdoor Activity Centres, Castles and Mountains are integral to our curriculum and essential for our pupils personal development.
The curriculum is taught through a mixture of single subjects and broad topics such as: Robin Hood - Outlaw or Hero?
