Curriculum Overview

Curriculum Overview


Beginning in September 2019, we have planned the topics within our curriculum for Key Stages One and Two over a two year cycle. This means that all children cover the appropriate National Curriculum objectives within the correct phase of schooling whilst also ensuring that children in mixed-year classes do not repeat topics. Each topic is focused around a 'Big Question' and teachers have planned the learning carefully to link different subjects, concepts and skills.


In Early Years, the teaching and learning is child-led and is determined by the children's interests and learning needs. Children in Nursery and Reception work towards the Early Learning Goals and are assessed using the 'Development Matters' guidance. Further information can be found on our Early Years Curriculum page here


As Curriculum Development and our two year cycle of topics are key focus areas for the school, further information will be added to this area of the website as our work continues.
