Curriculum

We aim to deliver a full and rich curriculum designed to challenge, engage and deepen learning to improve life chances and build upon the unique experiences of our pupils. We personalise our curriculum by planning and teaching to overcome barriers to learning for pupils to achieve the best outcomes possible.

 

We follow the 2014 National Curriculum in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. Full details of the curriculum can be found here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-framework-for-key-stages-1-to-4

In KS1 we follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme and we use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme to support individual reading and for some guided group sessions.

The Nursery and Reception children follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum, providing purposeful play and exploratory activity both indoors and outdoors.

To find out more about the Early Years Education click here.

The subjects included in the National Curriculum for Key Stage One and Two are:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Religious Education (RE)
  • Computing (ICT)
  • Design and Technology (DT
  • History
  • Geography
  • Art and Design
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Foreign Languages (KS2)

 

At each Key Stage, Programmes of Study set out what pupils should be taught, and attainment targets set out the expected standards of performance.  The curriculum is delivered in a variety of ways. Using the Programmes of Study, individual teachers will adopt a variety of approaches, including whole-class work, group, individual work and, as appropriate, inter-year work.  Whole-School curriculum planning, individual teacher planning and the overview of subject coordinators ensures a whole-school approach to curriculum organisation under the general direction of the Headteacher.  Thereby we ensure breadth and balance within the delivery of our school curriculum. Cross-curriculum themes are carefully selected to ensure that each child experiences the appropriate range of Attainment Targets in each Key Stage.
