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.

National Curriculum

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.

In maths, the children are taught the following. Please click on the link below:

In English, children in Key Stage 1 learn Phonics through the 'Letters and Sounds' reading scheme. This may continue in to Key Stage 2 for some children where appropriate. For English lessons, the children are taught the following. Please click on the link below:

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. Children in the EYFS are taught from the EYFS statutory framework. Click the link below to see this document:

Classes provide a curriculum web every term. Each web contains information on the learning taking place in each subject / Area of Learning. Learning is centred and planned around children’s interests and needs as well as pupil voice. We have also planned our curriculum around 'topical themes' that match both the national curriculum as well as pupil voice. Our topical work is linked to as many subjects across the curriculum so that we immerse children in their learning experiences.  To see these curriculum webs, please click the links below:

We have recently updated our curriculum maps to further develop coverage and cohesion. The links above provide you an overview of the curriculum for each phase.  If you would like to know more about the curriculum your child is following, please make an appointment (via the staff in the school office) to meet your child's class teacher.
