Curriculum & approach

We have created and refined our own five-year curriculum with the aims of developing “the whole child”, instilling an enthusiasm for learning, and building strong foundations for our pupils’ future education. It is built around the statutory curriculum for all children in the UK aged 0–5, the Early Years Foundation Stage, and the national curriculum requirements for Key Stage 1. It also acknowledges principles of other curricula and incorporates our years of experience teaching this age range. Its underpinning pillars are playing and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically.
