The primary years are of the utmost importance and we believe that children’s strengths and needs should be acknowledged and supported. The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (for


Nursery and Reception) is organised in six themed areas connected to child development. The National Curriculum is followed for Years 1-6 through a creative topic based curriculum which covers literacy, history, geography, art, DT and ICT skills. Separate literacy, mathematics, science, RE, music, PSCHE and French (Years 3-6) lessons are taught where the skills cannot be included in the topic. Phonics are taught through Read Write Inc in Key Stage 1.


Due allowance is made for the age, development, maturity and ability of individual children.
