Our Curriculum

At the age of rising 5 pupils will attend our early years class. Our school fully supports the principle that young children learn best through play, and by engaging in well planned and structured activities. Teaching in the early years class build on the experiences of the children in their pre-school learning. Early Years curriculum is based on the Foundation Stage Framework that was made statutory in September 2012. This means that children taught 7 Early Learning Goals with a stronger emphasis on the three prime areas which are most essential for healthy children's development. Much of this learning is taught through structured and free play.


The National Curriculum

The National curriculum applies to pupils of compulsory school age. It is organised on the basis of Key Stages.


Our school curriculum is underpinned by the values that we hold dear at our school. The curriculum is the means by which the school achieves it objective of educating children in the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need in order to lead fulfilling lives.

Key Stage One

In Key Stage One your child will continue to build on the excellent foundations laid in Early Years. Our teachers are commited to providing a happy, Healthy and calm atmosphere in which all children are encouraged to develop and reach their full potential.


Key Stage Two

In Key Stage Two we aim to build upon the high standards already achieved. The children will grow in all areas-personal,social and academic. Preparing them to have fulfilling lives as outstanding citizens.



Homework

Staff and pupils regard homework as an integral part of the curriculum. We see this as a shared responsibility between staff, pupils and parents/carers. Our homework policy and programme of homework is available from the school office on request. Children will also bring home reading books and are expected to read from them at least three times each week.


Sex Education

Please find attached, lesson plans for Yasmine and Tom. Growing up with Yasmine and Tom is an online resource to help us easily deliver high-quality sex and relationships education (SRE) as part of our Learning and Life Skills programme. The Department for Education recognises the need for SRE at all key stages and encourages schools to develop their own lesson content with support from expert sources. Growing Up with Yasmine and Tom was developed with this in mind. It includes 50 flexible, age-appropriate lesson plans and fun, interactive whiteboard activities designed to meet curriculum requirements for children aged 5–11.
