Our curriculum is planned around the National Curriculum set out by the government. There is a strong emphasis on teaching the basic skills English, Mathematics, Science and IT. Learning also includes the skills and knowledge of other subjects: History, Geography, Art, Physical Education, Music, Religious Education, Information Technology and Personal and Social Education.
Skills Based: learning will be planned to make sure the children develop a wide range of skills across all subjects.
First Hand Experiences: learning will be through first hand experiences and practical opportunities. Where possible this will include visits in the locality and further afield. We will also try hard to invite interesting visitors into school.
Learning will be Purposeful: different subjects will be linked together in ‘real life’ situations. Learning will Promote School Values.
Learning will be Visual: teachers will use visual resources and objects to engage children in learning.
In Key Stage 1 we use the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme.
Our curriculum learning journeys for each year group, which contain information on the levels we would expect a child to reach by the end of the year, are available to download below.
In Early Years we follow the Development Matters framework:
