The curriculum is broadly based on the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance in Reception and the National Curriculum in KS1. However, in both instances we expect to take the children further with their learning to provide the best possible education for children of all abilities within the school.
The children are taught a broad and balanced curriculum, which is relevant and differentiated to meet the pupil’s needs. High staff:pupil ratios allow small teaching groups in Literacy and Numeracy and children are grouped to maximise their individual learning potential. They receive specialist teaching in a range of subjects, including French, ICT, art and design technology, drama, music, PE, swimming and dance.
We use the International Primary Curriculum to deliver our Science, History, Geography, Art, Design and Music topics through engaging and creative thematic units.
Within our LFL+ program the children are taught the Eagle House Code, which underpins our behavioural expectations. They are encouraged to keep the code by a structured system of praise and rewards. Ensuring the children have good manners is an integral part of our teaching.
Outdoor Learning is an integral part of our curriculum. In Reception the children have a dedicated Outdoor Learning Classroom, which the children use on a daily basis. We are fortunate to be situated amid acres of woodland and our fabulous grounds provide every opportunity to explore and enjoy the outdoors.
