“Where Learning Comes Alive”


Our Curriculum

To ensure breadth, balance and progression, curriculum content and core knowledge for each subject is mapped across each Key Stage. The Breadth of Study documents below show what this looks like for each year group in each subject and the Maths and Science curriculum for each year group is shown in detail.

Each year group then organises learning to support the application of knowledge, skills and understanding through cross-curricular themes where links are appropriate. Geography, History and Science are often the key drivers, whilst a rich progression in skills for Art, D&T, ICT, RE Foreign Languages, PE and Music are also then mapped to ensure progression across the school.  A comprehensive range of skills underpin the core knowledge to ensure progression across both Key Stages.

Our Yearly Overviews which can be found on each class page outline key knowledge, where these are taught and how they link with other aspects of the curriculum.

The Foundation Stage team plan using the revised statutory framework for EYFS.


To find out more about the curriculum we follow, please ask any of the classteachers.  The link below will take you to the Department for Education website and the national curriculum for England to be taught in all local authority-maintained schools.


Pupils are taught to read and write using a systematic phonics programme, Read Write Inc, throughout the EYFS, Year 1 and into Year 2.   Further information may be found in the section below.
