Curriculum

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

English and Maths are taught discretely Tuesday to Friday and this includes phonics and guided reading. Also taught discretely are RE, PE, Science, History, Geography, DT and Art and Personal, Social and Health Education. Computing and Music are taught across the curriculum and where appropriate subjects are taught through a half-termly topic linked to the Cornerstones 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.

Phonics is taught rigorously via the government-produced programme Letters and Sounds. Read our Phonics Overview for more information.

Reading: We have a wide variety of books in school for children to read. They may also read books from the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme and from the Project X Scheme. To see how the book bands can inform progression and assessment click here.

British Values is a key aspect of the National Curriculum throughout school. It is taught explicitly through weekly assemblies and linking in with news around the world where possible.

Themes include:

Democracy
Rule of law
Individual liberty
Mutual respect
Tolerance of others

We also hold hustings for the head boy and girl.
