Curriculum

We give children a broad and balanced curriculum that provides rich, stimulating learning experiences enhanced through first hand experiences, visits and visitors. We make great use of the local area to tailor the curriculum to meet the needs of the children. We provide a curriculum that develops children academically, physically, socially, and spiritually based in a strong Christian foundation.

We use the National Curriculum programmes of study as the basis for the children’s learning. We follow a rolling programme using a topic based approach that links different areas of the curriculum. Each aspect of the subject is then differentiated to meet the needs of the children. We provide a curriculum map each term showing the learning planned in all aspects of the curriculum.

There is a Long Term Overview of topics at the foot of this page, which gives you a flavour of what to expect.  These are subject to change over the course of the year.

 

KS1 Phonics and Reading Schemes

In KS1 we use the 'Letters and Sounds' Phonics scheme, and a variety of reading schemes including Oxford University Press, Collins and Rigby.
