At Roe Farm we continually review the curriculum we provide to our pupils to ensure that it is appropriate for the context of our school and that gives deep and meaningful learning experiences that meet the statutory national curriculum objectives.  Pupils have their say on what they like about the curriculum through our school council and regular pupil surveys.  

In addition to the core and foundation subjects, we provide a comprehensive PSHE programme to ensure that pupils leaving our school are well prepared for the next stage in their lives and are good citizens in their communities.
