Our school follows the National Curriculum 2014 for Year 1 to 6; and the Early Years Foundation Stage framework for Year R. If you wish to find our more about the National Curriculum you can click here for a link to the Department of Education Website or please ask at the school office for further information.
We use the Letters and Sounds Phonics Programme which aims to build children’s speaking and listening skills and you can find more information about this scheme here: letters-and-sounds.com
Many subjects are taught through topics where there are cross curricular connections around a topic – eg a topic on food could include science, geography, history, art, DT, computing, and of course English and maths.
As some of our classes have mixed years, we have a rolling programme for our topic work so that a pupil will not repeat the same topic. We do, however, think of our curriculum as being spiral, so skills and knowledge will be reinforced at a progressively higher level each time.
