Our School Curriculum
Equal opportunities are provided for all children regardless of gender, race or disability. This means that every child has the chance to take part in everything. We plan to develop the whole child and provision is made for the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.
Children in the Foundation Stage (i.e. those in Reception classes) follow a curriculum based on play and active learning. There are three prime areas of personal, social and emotional development, communication and language and physical development. The four specific areas grow out of the prime areas and provide important contexts for learning; these are literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design.
Children in Year 1, 3,4 and 5 follow the New National Curriculum (2014) programmes of study. Year 2 and 6 follow the existing programme of study. This includes the core subjects of English, mathematics, science and computing and the foundation subjects of history, geography, design technology, art, physical education, music, religious education and languages. The long term plan ensures that all the curriculum areas are covered during the year. Activities are matched to pupils’ abilities. We provide rich and varied contexts for pupils to acquire develop and apply a broad range of knowledge, understanding and skills.
Please refer to the New National Curriculum page for more information on the coverage of each year group and the main changes in the curriculum.
