Curriculum

Our School Curriculum

We follow the DfE national requirements and programmes of study for all the core and foundation subjects. We design our curriculum so that it is unique, personalised and creative and incorporates what the children should be expected to know and be able to do by the age of 7. We want children to love learning and our school ambition of encouraging "learning for Life" underpins  our curriculum. We believe that the best way to do this is by engaging the children in themes and topics that are fun and centred around their interests and the things that they themselves would like to find out.

 

CORE SUBJECTS

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

English

Art, Design & Technology

Each year group personalises their curriculum depending on the needs and interests of each new cohort, so our topics are continually evolving. Year R topics are developed from the children's interests, fairy tales and experiences and we invite children to contribute their thoughts and ideas to themes studied.
