There will be daily lessons in English and mathematics. The use of ICT/ computing will be incorporated across the curriculum and the whole school curriculum will be underpinned by social, moral, spiritual and cultural education, with a values based and inclusive approach.

There is the highest expectations for the behaviour and safety of the pupils at our school.

The highest emphasis will be placed on the acquisition of the key skills of reading, writing and oral communication in literacy, which will be evidenced through pupils’ work across all curriculum areas.

In addition, the teaching of mathematics will focus on age appropriate mathematical knowledge as a starting point, with high expectations in each year group and an application of mathematical skills across the curriculum.
