Our pupils are entitled to a curriculum which is broad, balanced and relevant. The curriculum will be informed by assessment and appropriately differentiated in order to ensure continuity and progression throughout the learning process. We will ensure there is equality of access to and experience of the whole curriculum.

Our curriculum is planned to ensure entitlement for all pupils and we aim for and demand the highest levels of pupil achievement. We encourage and expect all our parents, carers and the community to work in active partnership with the school.

These curriculum aims will inform all school policies and planning, and will be reflected in classroom practice.
