Creative Curriculum

We follow a Creative Curriculum that covers the subjects of History, Geography, Art, Computing and Design & Technology and the National Curriculum requirements for each.  Each subject is planned carefully so that skills and knowledge are built upon in a chronological sequence and time is given to revisiting prior learning which helps the children contextualise what they are studying within each year group. 

Other subjects are taught as discrete subjects in their own right. We put a great emphasis on learning through experience and inquiry, providing opportunities for children to do, make, question and reason. School visits and outdoor learning opportunities enrich the children's learning in school in all year groups.

The whole school Creative Curriculum Topic Overview can be found here.

Modern Foreign Languages

Across Key Stage 2, French is taught by Mrs Higgins.  Children will follow the requirements of the National Curriculum and will take part in themed weeks and events throughout the year to teach them more about the culture and history of one of our closest European neighbours.  Be sure to ask your children about what they have learned and encourage them to share their newly acquired skills at home.  Click on the links below for your child's year group to find out the topics they will cover during the year.

 Music is taught discreetly as a subject in its own right  and we use a scheme called 'Charanga'.  

Children are exposed to music from different genres, cultures and places in time.  They listen and appraise, compose, perform and have experience of a range of instruments including recorder and glockenspiel.   

Each year, we stage a 'Music Day' during which all children perform what they have perfected as a result of following the programme and studying music related to their Creative Curriculum topic.

 The Arts (including Music) Curriculum Lead is Mrs Marshall


Computing is delivered as a discrete subject but aspects of the curriculum overlap with other subjects and every effort is taken to increase children's understanding of the value and potential of Information Technology.

We use Barefoot Computing Resources and materials from Knowsley CLC Scheme.  

The Computing Overview is can be viewed here.

The Computing Curriculum Lead is Miss Egan.
