The School Curriculum
The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that our school plans for its pupils. We view education at school and at home as a route to the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical and mental development of each child.
Our school curriculum allows opportunities for all pupils to learn and to achieve. We intend to prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
The School’s curriculum includes all the areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum and the core and foundation subjects specified in the Key Stage 1 and 2 National Curriculum established in 2014, with the appropriate levels of study for each age group. We follow the letter and sounds guidance when teaching Phonics.
The curriculum areas are as follows:
Communication, Language and Literacy
Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Knowledge and Understanding of the World
In addition, your child will study Religious Education following the agreed RE syllabus.
