Curriculum

 

The School Curriculum

The Primary Curriculum divides the whole curriculum into subject areas as follows:

Core Subjects

English, Mathematics, Science and Computing.

Early Reading and Phonics

Phonics is taught daily using a variety of resources including Jolly Phonics, Read Write Inc and the Letters and Sounds scheme.

Foundation Subjects

History, Geography, Art, Music, Design Technology, Personal, Social, Health Education and Physical Education

Religious Education

Religious Education is a statutory requirement but does not feature as part of the Primary Curriculum. We therefore follow Local Authority guidelines which have informed our policy and scheme for R.E. Parents have the right to withdraw children from Religious Education and from school assemblies if they so wish.

Modern Foreign Languages

French is currently delivered in Key Stage Two classes by a qualified modern foreign languages teacher.

The Planning And Delivery Of The Curriculum

The time children spend at school is limited therefore we must plan for them to use this time in the best possible way. We use a variety of teaching methods including whole class teaching, group work and individual programmes of study integrated across the curriculum, based on the needs of the individual child. We aim to provide a curriculum which is sound in basic principles, reflects the requirements of the New National Curriculum, and offers stimulating and memorable learning opportunities.

The learning situations we present will be relevant to the children’s interests and stage of development. Wherever possible they will be stimulated by practical and visual experiences. Our school curriculum is based on the belief that a child learns through listening, seeing, smelling, touching, tasting and experiencing through their many senses, the richness of life. It is the richness that we endeavour to mirror in our School Curriculum.

We teach subjects and skills in an integrated way whenever possible. We plan our work each term to include relevant aspects of Core and Foundation subjects in a creative approach which ensures adequate coverage of Programmes of Study and Attainment Targets whilst ensuring that the activities undertaken are stimulating and meaningful for the children. Thorough planning and excellent organisation on the teachers’ part is the key!
