To achieve our school vision we work to develop a structured curriculum, which ensures that all children are provided with learning opportunities that recognise and celebrate their uniqueness, develop their potential, allow them to fulfil their aspirations within and beyond school boundaries and prepare them to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.


We aim to deliver the highest quality of learning and teaching and expect all learners to be actively engaged in their learning. We strive to deliver a broad, stimulating and challenging curriculum and to continually improve our practice to ensure the best outcomes for pupils.


At every level, an ethos of high aspirations and ambition for all our learners is encouraged and attainment, achievement and participation are recognised and celebrated.

The Curriculum for Excellence identifies the key skills for life, four contexts in which learning takes place, six entitlements for learners, seven principles for curriculum design and eight curricular areas in which learning is organised. Using the Curriculum for Excellence, we aspire to guide all our pupils towrads being Successful Learners, Confident Individuals, Responsible Citizens and Effective Contributors.
