Our planning reflects the key objectives, skills, content and challenge of the National Curriculum. We teach our broad and balanced curriculum in an engaging, interesting and stimulating way, incorporating a skills-based curriculum with a set of skills that children acquire within each year group. The skills based approach ensures that the children make progress with their learning as they move through the school. We teach skills in a cross-curricular way based on a topic and linked to text (where appropriate), enabling children to embed learning through being motivated and making links between subjects and skills.
The curriculum is taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners and inspires children to nurture a passion for learning.
Early Years Foundation Stage children follow the statutory framework for the Foundation Stage. This consists of seven areas of learning; three prime areas of Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, and Communication and Language and four specific areas or Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Art and Design.
Year One and Year Two cover Key Stage One of the New National Curriculum. Years Three, Four, Five and Six cover Key Stage Two. This consists of ten subjects which are mainly taught through a cross-curricular approach, these are: English, Mathematics, Science, computing which are known as the Core Subjects and History, Geography, Art and Design, Design Technology, Music and Physical Education which are known as Foundation subjects. We also teach Religious Education and Personal Social Health Citizenship Education to all children and French in Key Stage Two.
