This section provides information regarding the areas of the curriculum your child will be learning about over the next academic term.

The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’ or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills so that they can achieve their true potential.

These are the main values of our school, upon which we have based our curriculum.
- We value the way in which all children are unique and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual child as well as for people of all cultures. We value spiritual and moral development of each person as well as their intellectual and physical growth.
- We value the importance of each person in our community. We organise our curriculum so that we promote co-operation and understanding between all members of our community.
- We value the rights of each person in our community. We respect each child in our school for who they are and we treat them with fairness and honesty. We aim to enable each person to be successful and we provide equal opportunities for all the children in our school.
- We value our environment and we aim, through our curriculum, to teach respect for our world and how we should care for it for future generations as well as our own.
- We value independent learning as a life skill and our curriculum reflects and provides opportunities for this.
The aims of our school curriculum are:
- to be inclusive to all children so that they can learn and develop their skills to the best of their ability
- to promote a positive attitude towards learning so that children enjoy coming to school and acquire a solid basis for lifelong learning
- to teach children the basic skills of literacy, numeracy, science and information communication technology (ICT)
- to enable children to be creative and to develop their own thinking

- to teach children about their developing world, including how their environment and society have changed over time
- to help children understand Britain’s cultural heritage
- to enable children to be positive citizens in their community and wider society
- to fulfil all the requirements of the National Curriculum and the Birmingham Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education
- to help children understand the importance of truth and fairness so that they grow up committed to equal opportunities for all
- to enable children to have respect for themselves and high self esteem and to be able to live and work co-operatively with others.
Our aims are achieved by:
- Planning for the future by producing a School Evaluation and School Development Plan.
