We use a thematic, cross-curricular approach. We provide an engaging and exciting curriculum to embed the key skills, knowledge and understanding of the National Curriculum.
Teachers plan opportunities for pupils to explore and maximise learning opportunities outside the classroom environment. This includes visits to the local area as well as visits to a range of attractions across London. We also maximise the use of our own garden where children are engaged in a range of activities to ensure they develop an understanding of sustainability and caring for our environment.

We place a strong emphasis on the development of basic skills. These skills are necessary for lifelong learning. We have ‘non-negotiable’ basic skills outlined for each year group, which are taught and expected to be applied.
