An Accessible Curriculum

At Sun Hill Junior School, we believe in creating an environment where everyone can flourish and is provided with the opportunities and support to reach their own personal goals.  This is reflected throughout the planning and learning in school and our dedication to inclusivity is detailed in our: visions and aims,  SEND Policy and SEND Information Report. 

Our curriculum drivers, and the skills emerging from them, underpin all aspects of our curriculum – core subjects, project learning and discreet subjects.  This is illustrated in the following documents:
