    • Our curriculum is broad, balanced and knowledge rich and fit for purpose through re-design, clear rationale and consistent implementation
    • Begin to close the disadvantage gap in writing and reading and boys writing

    • Develop pupils attitude to learning so they have high aspirations and become resilient to setbacks
