Our vision provides a guiding light to the pupils, staff, Governors and parents to ensure we have a dynamic mix of high achievement for all, exceptional pastoral care and expansive opportunities for the children. We want our children to become the exemplary citizens of the future. We are a vibrant, happy, family orientated community where everyone really feels they can flourish and  achieve anything to which they set their hearts and minds.

Geography

Our Geography Curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and is delivered through the KAPOW scheme unit planning. Geography is taught for half of each term using the mixed age planning units. Teachers carefully adapt lesson plans to differentiate between year groups. This means that Year 2, 4 and 6 access extension work and build on the previous year’s disciplinary knowledge. Assessment is ongoing and end of unit quizzes are used to ensure children have learned key knowledge within the unit. These are then revisited after a period of time to ensure children remember key knowledge from previously taught units.
