The children follow a programme of study that includes the National Curriculum, The Primary Frameworks and a number of creative opportunities.
Over the year, children receive a broad and balanced curriculum that consists of English, Maths, Science, ICT, Technology, History, Geography, Physical Education, Art, Music, R.E., Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) and in some classes (Year 4, 5 and 6) a Modern Foreign Language.
RE follows an agreed syllabus recommended by the Local Authority. Any parent wishing to withdraw their child from RE or collective worship (including school visits) should discuss the matter with the Site Head.
We believe that children can achieve their maximum potential by following the core areas of English, Maths and Science as separate subjects. History, Geography & Technology are taught each term as part of a topic. Opportunities for links with ICT (computers), Art, Music & P.E. are also identified but these may also be taught as separate subjects.
To develop and support children's learning, the application of skills and knowledge in different contexts and to promote a healthy attitude to learning, years 1-6 participate in Golden Time for 1 hour at the end of each week.
There is a requirement for schools to make their curriculum, content and approach, by academic year and by subject, available online. We recognise that this is a lot of complex information and parents are encouraged to speak to class teachers, Assistant Heands or an Every Child Matters Coordinator (ECMC) as their first point of reference for any queries.
Assistant Heads: Nursery & Reception (EYFS) Ms. Pendrey; Year 1 & 2 (Key Stage 1) Mrs Dunmow; Year 3 & 4 (Lower Key Stage 2) Ms. Welch; Year 5 & 6 (Upper Key Stage 2) Mr Ley.
ECMC: Cannington Mrs Camp; Hewett Mrs Caden.
Please note for 2014-2015
This year your child may not exactly follow this published curriculum as Year 2 and 6 are still working on our previous curriculum due to the 2015 SAT test. The updates made for all years have required adjustments to ensure that no content is repeated. Please see class teachers or Assistant Heads for more detailed information.
We also take advantage of significant anniversaries and events and one-off links and offers to enhance and ensure that our curriculum is relevant to our children.
