‘To be the best that you can be’




"From Nursery onwards, staff set high expectations so that pupils can ‘be the best that they can be’. Pupils are motivated and have positive attitudes to learning. The learning environment is purposeful and calm. Pupils are keen to share their ideas and take an active part in their learning."  Ofsted March 2023


We aim to provide our children with the highest quality of education that is fully inclusive and meets the needs for all children. Every child is an individual and should be supported, encouraged and nurtured to achieve the ‘best they can be!’


Our curriculum aims, are deeply rooted within our core Christian values (Compassion, Courage, Perseverance) and our Relationships for Learning Policy (Ready, Respect, Safe).


To ensure the highest quality of education for our children, we aim to:

  •  Nurture all children so that they become knowledgeable, emotionally literate and respectful citizens.
  • Provide a broad and balanced education for all pupils, in which knowledge, skills and vocabulary are carefully sequenced and there is clear progression.
  • Develop children’s independence skills and ability to be resilient when faced with challenge.
  • Support and nurture children’s personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • Equip children with the skills to look after their own health and wellbeing.
  • Promote a positive culture of equality and diversity; embracing different cultures and religions.
  • Provide children with a wealth of enrichment activities that enhance their understanding of the world and prepare them for adulthood.
  • Ensure the school is fully inclusive and accessible for all.


Our curriculum is spiral and carefully sequenced to ensure clear progression of knowledge, skills and vocabulary. The curriculum is mapped across a two-year cycle (apart from our Reception Class). Each unit of work opens with an overriding key question, which is then explored through a series of lessons with specific learning outcomes.


The curriculum is creative, exciting, and relevant to the needs of our children. We use our local environment and community, to enrich learning experiences and ensure we consistently make meaningful links to their everyday lives.


Reading is prioritised in the Early years, as we recognise the link between vocabulary acquisition, reading and academic success.


Quality First Teach ensures our lesson are clearly structured, pacey and engaging. Staff practice ‘live marking’ to ensure feedback is timely, appropriate and impactful.


To ensure that excellent learning takes place, learning routines and transitions are well planned and clearly structured.

Excellent classroom management aims to ensure that there is rarely any ‘lost learning time’ and lessons flow from one phase to the next.


Subject leaders are given regular subject leadership time to monitor their subject areas effectively, scrutinize work/data and talk to children about their learning.


Staff receive regularly, quality CPD to ensure they are up to date with current thinking and excellent practice.


Children leave our Federation with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have a firm grasp of basic skills, a strong sense of moral purpose and respect for others which prepares them well for their next destination.
