School Curriculum

The Curriculum

The 1998 Education Act brought in a compulsory National Curriculum. In primary schools, the subjects that all pupils must study are art and design, design and technology, English, geography, history, information and communication technology, mathematics, music, physical education and science. Religious education must also be provided.

The School Curriculum is more than just the subjects we teach. We legally have to teach the National Curriculum. Click below for information about the new National Curriculum for 2014.

Beyond those subjects, we offer the chance for all children to take part in Forest School, learning outdoors and a chance to develop skills through exciting topics. For more information about these topics click on the classes tab. In addition, there is a wide range of after school activities on offer for children of all ages. These clubs offer the children extra opportunities in sport, cooking, art etc. beyond what they normally cover in school time.
We feel that offering an integrated curriculum in this ways teaches the links between subject areas and makes learning more effective.

Our Current Year 6 and Year 2 are currently the last children to be learning via the old Curriculum and Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 from the new.

Our Reception Class follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
