Our BeDifferent curriculum has been created to instil a love of learning in children, developing lifelong learners who are curious about the world around them, motivated to pursue their dreams and resilient when faced with challenges.

It is designed to nurture the growth and development of the whole child, equipping each individual with the knowledge and skills they need to support their physical and mental well-being. We strongly believe that children thrive when they feel safe, happy and valued.

Our philosophy that 'Strength Lies in Differences' underpins our celebration of everyone's individual cultural identities. We know that being different and celebrating our uniqueness provides an environment where each child can thrive.

Learning should be challenging, rewarding and meaningful, and we achieve this through teaching that is relevant, creative and passionate. We value collaborative, relational learning experiences that support the social construction of knowledge.

The topics selected are carefully chosen to ensure National Curriculum coverage as well as progression within children's knowledge and skills throughout their time with us. We teach children to think critically and objectively, making connections between different areas of their learning and fully mastering new concepts before moving on.
