Our curriculum extends beyond the National Curriculum and includes a wide range of enriching experiences and opportunities both within and beyond the school day.
Whole School Theme Days/Weeks
Throughout the year, themed days/weeks are woven into the curriculum to extend the breadth of opportunities we offer our pupils. These include, Anti-bullying Week and Safer Internet Day, World Book Day, Science week and various days where we celebrate festivals from a wide range of cultures and religions.
World Book Day and Dahlicious Day
Every half term, each class holds a TED (Topic Enrichment Day). The children spend the day fully immersed in their half term’s topic; they may be invited to dress up and they will take part in activities that they wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to do in their day-to-day curriculum.
Visitors into School
Visitors have a valuable role to play and can contribute to many aspects of the life and work of the school. They deliver talks, workshops and full day activities across a wide range of subjects, giving pupils access to outside experiences and expertise. Visitors provide a link with the wider community – children have the opportunity to work alongside artists, musicians and authors.
