Curriculum

The school follows the revised National Curriculum focusing primarily on Literacy and maths skills each morning. Through this children are taught the basic skills of reading, writing and maths.

The children follow a graded scheme of phonics from Reception when they will be taught basic phonemes (sounds) and blends. This in turn enables the children to learn to link letters to the sounds they create as well as to begin to read and write.

The school uses Letters and Sounds to support the phonics delivery as well as a number of reading scheme materials including books from The Oxford Reading Tree scheme. To promote writing we use the principles of the Big Writing scheme.

In maths we have utilised the principles of the Big Maths scheme to support skills development.

The children are also taught science, geography, history, music, PE, art, design technology and RE. The children in Nursery and Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. Personal and social skills are also covered as part of the taught currirculum. Sometimes these skills will be taught through other areas and sometimes they will be taught as discreet components.
