Curriculum Enhancement

Enhancing our Curriculum

We have worked hard to enhance our curriculum with as many trips and visitors as possible. We believe that children learn best through experience and an enhanced curriculum is a quality curriculum. Due to the location of our school and high number of pupil premium children, we have discovered that many of our children do not have the simple experiences and chances to experience that others do. So we have invested Pupil premium money to support those children where possible to gain those life changing experiences.
