Curriculum

Through our broad and balanced curriculum we aim to: enable children to become confident, resourceful, enquiring and independent learners; foster children’s self-esteem and help them build positive relationships with others; develop children’s self-respect and encourage children to respect the ideas, attitudes, values and feelings of others; show respect for all cultures and, in so doing, to promote positive attitudes towards other people; enable children to understand their community and help them feel valued as part of this community; help children grow into reliable, independent and positive citizens in modern Britain; enable all children to meet their full potential and be the best they can be.

Our curriculum is organised by age range as follows: Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception), Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2), Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4) and Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6). We teach the National Curriculum - and beyond - through central topics in each age group. 

Phonics at Foundation stage and Key stage 1 is taught in ability groups using a synthetic phonics programme 'Letters and Sounds'. At Key stage 2, phonics is one of a range of strategies for developing spelling and decoding skills.

Documents detailing the programmes of study for each of these Key Stages are available below. 

As ever, should you have any questions about the content of our curriculum or the work your child is completing in school, please pop into school to see a member of staff.
