    We believe that teaching essential skills are fundamental in children’s learning. We aspire to offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced whilst providing enough time to ensure there is depth in the learning. We have adopted an inquiry based approach which allows us to provide children with open ended, authentic, purposeful opportunities to explore the world around them: developing their own questions; linking their learning and seeking meaning for themselves. Inquiry based learning gives the children opportunities to apply their skills in a meaningful way across the Areas of Learning Experiences (AoLEs). Through Inquiry children learn to persevere, adapt, work independently, collaborate and make decisions for themselves.
