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.
Parents and carers can find out more about our school curriculum by attending start-of-year curriculum meetings, by referring to the pack of materials issued, or by requesting a conversation with the class teacher.
We aim to make our curriculum accessible to all pupils, regardless of their special educational needs or disabilities. Extra support from staff may be appropriate, but we believe it is important that all pupils experience and take part in the full range of subjects on offer.
