Growth with Progress
We deliver a creative curriculum through topics that engage the children. Within the curriculum, we aim to ensure that fundamental British values of democracy, the rules of law, individual liberty and mutual respect are taught and discussed and we highlight the importance of respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

To deliver our curriculum we use the facilities and resources we have in school, such as IT, a cooking area, library, village hall, allotment, wood and large recreation field. We also use the local area to enhance the children's learning experience, such as the local farm, church and village. We also invite members of the community into school.
Our curriculum work is supported by a range of trips and visitors. You will be informed in writing about any trips that take place and you be asked to make a voluntary contribution to the cost. In some individual circumstances the Governors have approved the payment of the cost of the trips from school funds. Please ask at the school office for details of eligibility.
We are a Church School and follow the agreed syllabus for Religious Education in Suffolk. This comprehensive and exciting curriculum helps children to consider their own beliefs and values and those of others. The children learn about religions and beliefs and learn from religions and beliefs through a series of well-planned themes.
We have a myriad of clubs that enhance children's education in school as well as a creative staff.
Our passion for a fulfilling and creative curriculum does not disregard academic standards. Each child's learning is closely monitored and support is given to a child should they need it, to either help the child with strategies or extend the more able child's thinking.
Our curriculum is carefully structured to ensure the children receive a balanced diet of teaching and learning throughout their primary education in each of our classes.
Following the introduction of the National Curriculum 2014 we are currently undertaking a major overhaul of our entire curriculum as we want to make it as worthwhile and interesting for the children as we possibly can.
In the National Curriculum the government has set out the learning objectives which our children work towards.
