Our school day begins at 8.45am and ends at 3.20pm. We follow the Statutory National Curriculum and the Non-Statutory subject of Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship (PSHEC). We teach pupils about changes to our bodies in Science and PSHEC lessons. Issues such as hygiene and growth are covered sensitively throughout the school. The main aspect of sex and relationships education is taught when the children are in Year 5 and 6 with the involvement of the school nurse.
Pupils are taught French across the whole school.
Religious Education is a compulsory part of the curriculum in accordance with the 1944 Education Act and is taught as a discrete subject in school. Our assemblies also support the exploration of a range of religions and festivals as well as helping us to set the ethos of the school. We invite parents to share in our assemblies such as our Harvest Festival, Easter and Christmas Services as well as Praise Assemblies.
