Our rich curriculum lays the foundations for children to participate within and beyond the school. It is our vision that through a deep understanding of our core values, children will have the confidence to actively participate in whatever community they find themselves in throughout their lives, and make their voices heard.
A well planned annual schedule of opportunities, coupled with invitations to join in relevant events and campaigns that become important to the children, aims to broaden their horizons and enable them to empathise and understand others in different contexts.
Aspects of the curriculum are planned to develop across five key themes:
- Inclusive participation
- Self care
- Presentation and advocacy
- Personal responsibility
As well as established annual events, children are encouraged to advocate for their own additions to the calendar, for example, for charities of their choice or issues they feel strongly about.
The school is proactive in reaching out to local representatives such as local council, our MP, and the news media. This leads to a responsive and constantly evolving curriculum.

Impact is assessed through three strands
1. Participation rates for different groups, reported to governors and fed into the School Development Plan, Pupil Premium Plan and Sports Funding Plan
2. Impact on individual pupils, documented in school tracking and reports to parents
3. Impact on the school and its community, for example through successful fundraising campaigns
