Year group expectations

Leaders ensure that the curriculum is broad and balanced. This engages pupils and ensures that they make good progress across a wide range of national curriculum subjects. Pupils enjoy singing, which is a strength. There is a diverse range of extra-curricular activities to enrich their experiences, such as community gardening and fundraising, which pupils participate in with enthusiasm.

Religious Education

We follow the agreed syllabus for Religious Education. ‘Living Difference 3’ was agreed by Hampshire, IOW, Portsmouth and Southampton Councils to ensure all schools have a comprehensive understanding of belief systems across the world. The two faiths that we cover within our RE sessions are Christianity and Judaism. However, it is essential to provide children with an overview of other religions and we ensure that key celebrations in each religion are discussed as part of our daily schooling as a matter of course. One World Week is an annual school celebration on top of everyday respect of our faiths and beliefs. If you would like to discuss our RE curriculum or opt your child out of RE sessions, please make an appointment to speak with Mrs Ford.
