Our Curricular Targets for Spring 1. Please click on icon to view targets.

British Values

British Values are an important part of year 4 and are introduced, discussed and lived through the ethos and work in our classroom. All curriculum areas provide further understanding of these concepts, particularly RE and PSHE. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.  Our children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community through sporting events, visitors and school trips. Their strong rooted values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.
