The school teaches Relationship and Sex Education in accordance with national guidelines.
The school aims to provide opportunities for pupils to develop the skills, knowledge and
understanding they need to lead confident, healthy independent lives and become both
informed and active citizens. We take steps to ensure that Relationship and Sex education is
taught in such a manner as to encourage children to have due regard to moral considerations
and the value of family life.
Any parent who feels unsure about the content of this part of the curriculum is encouraged
to speak to their child9s class teacher. It is possible to withdraw your child from this element
of the curriculum by prior arrangement with the Head of School.
Homework is set on a regular basis; teachers will tell parents when homework will be given
and when it must be returned to school. More details of homework activities are accessible
through the class page of the school9s website.
Extra-Curricular Activities, Trips and Visits
We are proud to offer a wide range of activities both during and at the end of the school day.
Our Sports Grant enables us to offer a variety of sporting activities each term, for example Football, Netball, Rounders, Cricket, Dance and Gymnastics. We also have a diverse range of
extra-curricular activities that are teacher led. These include: Lego, Cookery, Nature, Choir,
Basketball and Homework.
We also offer a broad range of trips and visits throughout the school year. Your child will
