Throughout the school, we believe that education must develop every child's personality, talents and abilities to the full. To this end, the children experience a varied but balanced curriculum that addresses: science, history, geography, ICT and music through a topic based approach. Throughout the curriculum we seek opportunities for performance (music and drama). In addition, we teach discrete sessions in Maths, English, Phonics, French, Computing and Physical Education. 

The children are encouraged to become independent learners, using their newly acquired skills from the Foundation Stage Unit, within a free flow setting in Year 1. This allows for the transition from the Foundation Stage Unit to KS1 to be as smooth as possible.

We like to use many different environments in addition to that of the classroom and so we work outside in the school grounds, in the local environments of Swinton and Mexborough and also beyond the boundaries of Rotherham.
