Curriculum

The school's curriculum is based on a topic led approach to learning. Children learn best when they are having fun, when learning is purposeful and meaningful, and when they can apply newly acquired skills into 'real life' situations.

The curriculum caters for all learning styles: visual, kinaesthetic, tactile & auditory. Learning is enriched by the inclusion of a range of visits and trips, and by inviting vistors into school. We make much use of our proximity to local museums and galleries, travelling in to central London by train.

As well as the core subjects of English, Maths, Science, RE & ICT, we ensure that we cover the teaching of art, design & technology, geography, history, music, PE and Modern Foreign Languages.

We often organise 'enrichment' weeks, when there is a focus on a particular aspect of the curriculum. This gives us an opportunity to demonstrate how the learning in school is relevant to real life and parents come in to explain how they use the skills learned in school to their professional lives eg. in Maths' Week, we have had talks from parents about the work of an architect, a doctor, a fireman, a nurse.
