'An outstanding curriculum further underpins pupils' good progress'

Ofsted Report September 2010

Our policies cover all subjects in the National Curriculum and are reviewed every three years. We also have policies that cover every aspect of school life including Health and Safety, Admissions, Behaviour, Homework, Child Protection, Inclusion and many more.

Here is an extract from our Humanities Policy:


We use a variety of teaching and learning styles in humanities lessons. Our main aim is to develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding of historical and geographical topics. We organise our humanities lessons that offer children opportunities to learn in different ways. These include:

  1. Whole class teaching.
  2. Group, paired or independent work. 
  3. Use of ICT resources. 
  4. Studying artefacts. 
  5. Research and explorative work. 
  6. Workshops. 
  7. Providing as many cross-curricular links as possible. 
  8. Fieldwork and educational visits (each class undertakes at least one educational visit per term which plays a vital part in enhancing their learning).

Our teaching is:

  1. Discursive
  2. Interactive 
  3. Well-paced 
  4. Confident 
  5. Ambitious


Humanities is planned to give children a suitable range of differentiated activities appropriate to their age and ability. Tasks will be set which challenge all children and extend the more able.
