Curriculum Intent

We aim to work in partnership with parents, governors, the Church and the community to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that enables all our children to develop into well rounded individuals and life-long learners. As a church school our curriculum is built upon a strong Christian foundation, with our core values of hope, perseverance, respect, friendship, forgiveness and thankfulness at the heart of all we do.

Curiosity underpins lifelong learning, from pre-school up our curriculum is based upon asking questions and exploring. Reading is the gateway to sustainable learning. We have a structured approach to reading to ensure childern develop skills that are applied across the curriculum. Vocabulary is a key focus and our curriculum is designed to ensure children develop both rich creative and subject specific vocabulary.

To ensure knowledge is retained and learning ’sticks’, our curriculum is carefully mapped out across all phases, providing continuity, supporting transition and revisiting / building on key concepts.

Our curriculum takes inspiration from our Forest of Dean setting by the River Severn whilst also ensuring that pupils are outward looking with planned opportunities to gain experience of the wider world.

We aim for children to leave our school not only achieving their full academic potential, but with the skills to keep themselves physically, mentally and spiritually fit. The confidence to push themselves outside of their comfort zone and the moral compass and drive to be active global citizens.
