We have developed a curriculum which is  relevant, challenging and led by the interests and needs of the children. It is driven by the National Curriculum as well as local, national and international events such as the Olympics, general elections and national celebrations.

We aim to make as much use of our local area as possible and plan for all children to take part in outdoor learning, local visits and cultural activities, such as cinema and theatre performances. 


Curriculum  for 2018 - 2019

Numbers vary from year to year and our class structure reflects this. In 2018,  teaching and learning in Early Years and Key Stage 1 is organised as follows:


Children begin nursery the term after they are three. They can attend a combination of mornings and afternoons across the week. In nursery, although the planned themes are those followed by the rest of the year groups, teaching and learning is very much responsive to the children’s needs and interests and follows the guiding principles of the statutory framework for the early years foundation stage.

Reception and Year 1.

These children are grouped into two separate classes. The classrooms are adjacent to each other and both have access to all areas of provision. These two classes follow the framework for EYFS for the reception children but then ensure that the year 1 children receive the National Curriculum expectations for their year group.

Year 1 and Year 2

This class is predominantly year 2 with a small group of year 1 children. Teaching and learning in this class also follows  National Curriculum expectations, with differentiated work wherever necessary.


Curriculum in EYFS and Key Stage 1

All four classes follow a two year rolling programme with the same overarching themes across the year. In 2018-19 the long term plans are arranged into themes which are : 

Year 1
Year 1/2

 These plans then form the basis of the following medium term plans:

Year 1 and 2

 MTP - whole term







Key Stage 2 - years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

These children are organised into single year group classes.


Curriculum in Key Stage 2

Teaching makes links with prior learning in previous years, as well as introducing new concepts and ideas. Planning covers the knowledge and skills in each subject for each year group and makes links across the curriculum, wherever possible.
