Curriculum Overview

The Policy

The school’s curriculum policy sets out our approach to delivering the National Curriculum. Our aim is to provide a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. The policy reflects the school’s ethos of providing access and entitlement for all learners. It informs all aspects of school practice, from planning, to teaching strategies, assessment and differentiation.


Children in EYFS are provided with a stimulating learning environment which encourages learning through play, a fundamental part of early learning. The school uses the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum to plan learning opportunities in the following areas: 

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development 
  • Communication and Language 
  • Physical Development
  • Mathematics   
  • Literacy                        
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design


Key Stage 1 and 2 subjects include:

English,  Maths, Science, Computing, Geography, RE, History, PSHE, PE, Art, DT, Music and MFL


The subjects are linked to the termly topics which are on a two year rolling program. The phonics programme which is followed is Supersonic Phonic Friends. We use a broad range of reading books that support our phonics scheme.
