Teaching and the Curriculum

The school is organised in three key stages. The Foundation Stage for pupils in reception classes, Key Stage 1 (KS1) for years 1 and 2 and Key Stage 2 (KS2) for years 3 to 6. Classes are grouped in teams to enable greater continuity in planning and delivery.

In accordance with the National Curriculum we provide the full range of subjects required and we endeavour to ensure that each child achieves the attainment targets that are appropriate to his/her age and ability. All children from years 1 to 6 follow the National Curriculum.

Children in reception classes follow the Foundation Stage curriculum which includes personal, social and emotional development; communication, language and literacy; mathematical development; knowledge and understanding of the world; physical and creative development.

Pupils’ cultural development is fostered using visits and visitors which reflect their varied cultural backgrounds. The school uses photographs, artefacts and teaching materials which reflect as far as possible the ethnic background of the pupils. Family members are invited in to school to share their experience or expertise when this is relevant to the curriculum.

This year we have launched a new project based approach to learning in all year groups from Year 1 to Year 6. Our aimm to to provide engaging, real life opportunities for learning where children are encourgaed to think and learn through enquiry and exploration.

The teachers plan collaboratively to share ideas and to develop best practice. In our new approach we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which inspires children to develop a love of learning. We plan to build in a sense of awe and wonder through a range of learning experiences. A range of starting points are used, for example: books, film,  the internet, sounds, pictures, videos, trips and visitors, role play, drama. There is a strong focus on developing high quality writing throughout the school.
