We have embedded the National Curriculum, introduced in 2014, across our schools and staff work hard to give children learning opportunities that challenge and inspire them to reach their full potential. We have specialist teachers visiting the school each week to support our music, art, French and PE curriculum and to provide additional enrichment clubs in sport and music.
Throughout the year we celebrate and share our sporting and creative skills.
We love our sports week which a whole week dedicated to sport. During the week all children from Nursery to Year Six have numerous opportunities to try out new sports such as hurling, pillow polo, caving, bmx biking, archery, ultimate frisbee and Bollywood Dancing. We are also lucky enough to have assemblies and training sessions run by professional athletes such as Zinzan Brooke (New Zealand Rugby Union Footballer), Ian Rose (Paralympian Judo Medallist) and Rachel Burford (Ladies England Rugby).
Creative Arts Week
During our creative arts week we dedicate our learning time to exploring the arts. We create large pieces of art work which display throughout the school and put on musical concerts for our parents. The Year 4 Rock Band showcase their skills and we finish the week with a carnival. Parents and family members enjoy sitting out on the grounds while all the children in the school sing, dance and perform. Our Year 5 and 6 children, who have had steel pan lessons throughout the year, play for the carnival. While the staff and children love dressing up in bright carnival clothes, dancing around waving their glow sticks and blowing their whistles this is not compulsory!
