Curriculum

 

 

We offer a broad, balanced curriculum that reflects the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. The National Curriculum prescribes what schools teach but it is
not, in itself, a complete curriculum. We expect every child in Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 to learn and study all subjects. However, in Key Stage 4 students are able to choose subjects that they would prefer to learn. There are still elements of the curriculum that are statutory. The following list will provide information about the statutory subjects and subjects that are considered as ‘Options’. The curriculum is designed to provide instruction and participation in specialized areas helping children to develop fine and gross motor skills, aesthetic appreciation, and intellectual ability. Art and music further enrich the learning experience. Classes are child-centered; the teacher is the guide and observer overseeing the child's exploration of the world. Children learn in a pleasant and stimulating environment with carefully designed, age-appropriate materials.
