Social, Moral, Spritual & Cultural Education 

Social Skills are developed through Personal, Health & Social Education (PHSE) and are supported by a strong Behaviour Policy.  We aim to give our children a good understanding of their local, national and world environment through a responsive Citizenship programme.



We use Read, Write Inc to start off our early readers and introduce phonics.  Once children start on our Reading Pathway, we have a wide range of books which are banded according to reading ability. Schemes included in book banding include: Project X, Oxford Reading Tree, Dandelion and Ginn.  Our extensive library includes fiction and non-fiction, poetry and picture book sections.

Religious Education

All schools must give religious education to their children. We do this through a broad curriculum that looks at a variety of religions, and through assemblies. Alternative arrangements can be made for children whose parents belong to religious groups that do not permit children to study other religions. Parents should consult the Head Teacher to discuss this.
