Pupils in the Early Years (F1 and F2 classes) work towards the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Staff plan learning experiences based on children’s individual developmental needs and interests. From Year 1 onwards we follow the National Curriculum.
Curriculum planning follows the programmes of study in the National Curriculum. Maths and English is taught daily. Children learn how to read and write using a phonics programme called Read Write Inc and will take home a range of carefully selected books to support their development of reading. We follow the White Rose maths scheme alongside Abacus maths programme which enables our pupils to work practically and investigate problems. We make English and Maths teaching link to our topics so that pupils see how their learning relates to everyday, real life situations. Pupils will have English and Maths homework to support their learning.
Most foundation subjects are taught following the Cornerstones Curriculum. This curriculum features imaginative learning projects, each offering pupils the opportunity to learn in ways that will inspire and motivate them. The Cornerstones curriculum is based on a four stage philosophy of ENGAGE, DEVELOP, INNOVATE and EXPRESS.
This section gives you an overview of the topics pupils will be covering throughout the school year. If you would like further information about the curriculum we deliver or what your child is learning, please see your child’s teacher.
