Instilling awe and wonder for learning

Here in the Infant Department, we aim to give the children an excellent educational platform for their learning by exploring topics that inspire their interests and encourage them to want to find out more. Laying down this solid foundation allows the children to grow as independent learners and build the confidence to have a go and persevere before progressing to Juniors.

We entrust the children with responsibilities both in the classroom and out in the playground; Year Two children can take on the role of ‘Playground Friends’, demonstrating their care for those around them. We build up the children’s social skills by encouraging them to be good listeners, to negotiate with others, to work and play co-operatively and to respect others.


Maximising potential and understanding

We implement the Read Write Inc. This is a Phonics program with three weekly one-hour sessions, enhancing phonic knowledge, reading, spelling, comprehension, and writing. Regular assessments group children by level for comprehensive learning.

This knowledge informs individualised teaching, promoting curriculum confidence. Our Abacus math scheme continually assesses to pinpoint teaching focus for maximum progress. This builds self-awareness of strengths and weaknesses, guiding skill improvement.

Our core subject for years 1 & 2 include:


KS1 follow the White Rose Maths scheme, this ensures a clear progression of skills with a particular focus on fluency, reasoning and problem-solving.


In Key Stage 1 English is taught through Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar activities and focused Reading and Phonics, where the children use their skills and knowledge applying these to their writing.


In Key Stage 1, Humanities, History, and Geography are explored through engaging Topics. Each term, a big question guides the learning journey, fostering cross-curricular connections.

Forest School

Our enhanced Forest School area caters to every year group, offering a child-led outdoor experience.


Science is a real highlight for KS1, our curriculum delivers practical, engaging learning which is accessible to all.

Specialist Subjects

In KS1, specialist teachers enhance the curriculum by instructing Dance, Music, Spanish, and ICT.

I have found the whole school community to be very friendly and supportive. My child has really enjoyed the mixture of activities and the chance to try new things.
