Curriculum

EYFS

The school follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum for all children in Nursery and Reception.  Both settings provides a safe and stimulating environment where children can begin to explore the world around them.

KS1

The school follows a broad and balanced curriculum, in line with the National Curriculum 2014, focused on meeting age related expectations and developing potential in every child. The curriculum is delivered in a cross curricular way using a 2 year rolling programme. Lessons are taught using a combination of whole class teaching, group work and individual work. By utilising a creative approach to our curriculum we aspire to foster a love of learning in all children.

Reading and phonics

The school teaches reading and phonics using Letters and Sounds and the Read Write Inc teaching programmes.

The school uses the Read Write Inc reading books to teach Guided Reading and a variety of reading schemes for home readers including Oxford Reading tree, Collins Big Cat, Oxford Literacy Web and Dandelion Launchers
