Curriculum

We follow the Early Years Framework for children in Nursery and Reception and the National Curriculum for all subjects in Years 1 to 6, which can be found here.

English and Maths are taught discretely Monday to Thursday and this includes phonics and guided reading. Also taught discretely are RE, PE, MFL and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE). Science, History, Geography, DT, Art, Computing and Music are taught across the curriculum and where appropriate through a half-termly topic linked to our Awe and Wonder Curriculum

We do a range of activities in and out of school linked to the wider curriculum, including hosting visitors, attending events, visiting interesting places and working with parents and the local community. Read this list for a sample of amazing things we do in and out of school and their link to the curriculum.

Assessment

In light of the National Curriculum changes in 2014 and the associated ‘assessment without levels’ we have adapted our own assessment arrangements accordingly. In Reading, Writing and Maths we have adopted a new system whereby the children seek to achieve as many of their respective 25 end of year statements as possible each year and are a given a Year group score depending on how many are achieved. The progress in all of these subjects is shared three times per year with parents during pupil progress meetings.
