Curriculum

The ‘basic’ school curriculum includes the ‘national curriculum’, religious education (RE) and sex and relationships education (SRE). The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.

The national curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’ (KS). At the end of each key stage, your child’s teacher will formally assess their performance to measure your child’s progress.

Schools have to teach RE but parents can withdraw their children for all or part of the lessons. Pupils can choose to withdraw themselves once they’re 18. Sex and relationship education is compulsory from age 11 onwards. It involves teaching children about reproduction, sexuality and sexual health. To see what is taught at this school for SRE, please ask for a copy of our SRE policy from the office.
