National Curriculum

From September 2014 we have taught the new Primary National Curriculum.  This is taught to our children in Year 1 to Year 6.

Our Reception children (Year R) follow the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

We have planned our curriculum to ensure that it:

  • meets statutory requirements.
  • is broad and balanced.
  • offers practical and enjoyable first-hand experiences.
  • has a clear skills progression.
  • develops children’s understanding through learning links and cross curricular topics.
  • promotes health and well-being.
  • develops a sound social, moral, spiritual and cultural appreciation and awareness
  • fulfils the requirement to promote British values.
  • supports and accelerates the life chances of vulnerable groups and individual needs.,

Although our curriculum is underpinned by the aims of the national curriculum there are planned opportunities that make up the wider curriculum.  Where links can be made, subjects are taught creatively in a cross-curricular thematic way.  We place a strong emphasis on the development of basic skills that are necessary for lifelong learning.

Religious Education is delivered through the locally agreed syllabus.

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is taught throughout the school, and offers learning opportunities and experiences which enable pupils to learn skills to develop effective relationships and to keep themselves safe.
