Our vision is life in all its fullness; for all our children, their families and the whole staff team. This Christian vision is at the heart of everything we do and it inspires us to focus on what is most important – preparing all children to flourish both now and later in life. Our children join us as infants – predominantly from our linked school Hampton Wick Infant and Nursery School – and leave us as seniors. Along the way, our curriculum gives them every opportunity to explore who they are; their passions, interests and aspirations.
We believe we provide our children with an excellent start to life; giving them the skills and confidence to flourish both now and in the future. We have high expectations of all our children and are continually striving to be the best we can be. We live out our vision in the everyday through our core school values of: Growth, Kindness, Integrity, Creativity and Joy.
We organise our curriculum to promote learning, personal growth and development. Our curriculum embodies our vision by developing key life skills in our children; taking into account our individual school context. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We have adapted and broadened the National Curriculum to meet the particular needs of our pupils and families and are confident it is a curriculum designed to work for all in our community.
Aims and Principles
Based on who our children are and what they come to us with, our school curriculum is designed to support the children to develop the following skills:

Curriculum overviews and 'Meet the Teachers' videos
We are pleased to share a video from each of the year group teams which summarises the key information for your child's year group. We hope it serves as a good introduction to the year ahead and to your child's teacher during this time where we are still that bit less connected than we might otherwise normally be. The powerpoint that the teachers talk through is also included below if you would rather just click through it instead of watch the video.

A thought for the new term
However 'together' you may feel like you have it at the moment, there will be a time - as there is for us all - that we need help. Here are three short reflections on the theme to start the new year:
Helping you through the cost of living crisis - Despite government intervention, many families will find this winter a difficult one financially. If times are tough, please do reach out to our family support worker Mrs Sedgwick who will gladly signpost you to the relevant local charity or to St John's Church who have a hardship fund which could offer support.
Helping our school community - The new PTA collective have lots of ideas for the year ahead for events for children and us adults alike (The first of which - Boozy Bingo on Fri 14th October - promises to be great fun!). Please come along to these events and let your hair down a little, and please consider helping at one event this year if at all possible.
Helping your children to flourish - Whilst there is no manual for parenting, as a staff we collectively have hundreds of years of experience supporting children! I encourage you to be open to the suggestions of your child's class teacher as the year goes on - we want to support you to see your children flourish both now and in the future.
It takes us all to see our children have the best start to life, so let's seek to help ourselves and one another in the year ahead.
