Curriculum Plans


Our Teachers are Mrs Goodfellow and Mrs Loftus and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Oliver.

Mrs Wright is our PPA cover Teacher on Thursday afternoons and Mr Ilori teaches us P E on Thursday afternoons.

During the summer term, we take part in a three-day residential trip to a PGL centre. This gives pupils the chance to try out both land and water based activities and to build their confidence. It is a fantastic learning experience as well as being great fun!

Our PE slots are Monday and Thursday, but we ask that children leave their PE kits in school, as times can change at short notice. PE will be in the hall and also outside as much as possible. Please make sure your child has jogging bottoms as well as shorts in case the weather is chilly. They must also keep trainers or plimsolls in school as part of their PE kit.
