We offer termly Collapsed Curriculum Projects such as our recent ‘ ICT/DT Robots’ programme and regularly use visits and visitors to support our teaching and learning eg Forest Schools, Creative Practitioners, Allotment.
We have held the highly regarded Artsmark Gold Award, Healthy Schools, International Schools Award, Food for Life Bronze Award and Gold School Games Mark and Leading Parent Partnership Awards which altogether seek to validate the richness of our curriculum along with the twenty lunchtime and after school clubs which OfSTED deemed ‘Outstanding.’
