The Topic based approach allows children to become motivated and inspired to become successful learners through a curriculum which is based on the Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS). These help promote learning challenges, planned in response to the needs and interests of the children. With the right balance of challenge and support, children are actively involved in a range of memorable learning experiences which promote creativity, independence and enjoyment. We have a strong commitment to the development of basic skills through integrating literacy and numeracy skills throughout the curriculum. We aim to provide a range of opportunities which give every child the chance to shine and hopefully develop interests which they will continue to pursue beyond school.
