Nursery and Reception pupils follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. Pupils in Years 1 to 6 follow the National Curriculum 2014 and teachers use a planning resource called “Weaving Knowledge, Skills and Understanding into the new National Curriculum” (FocusEd) to ensure that children are taught aspects of subjects at an age-appropriate level. Schemes of work provide the content which satisfies the statutory requirements and recommendations of the Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum.
We teach some curriculum content through topic themes which are notified to parents at the beginning of each half-term, but we maintain the focus on the subject disciplines and some sujects are taught separately. Our Curriculum is broad and balanced and aims to make good use of our extensive outdoor learning areas.
