Curriculum Autumn 2016

The school revised it’s curriculum provision in Spring 2016 following the implementation of the latest National Curriculum over the previous two years. Some changes have been made to our curriculum overview to reflect the needs of the local community and, in particular, our pupils. Medium term plans have then been written by teachers to ensure full coverage of our curriculum, highlighting skills and learning objectives which will be covered during each session, together with appropriate differentiated tasks so that all pupils can move forward in their learning. Below you will find hyperlinks (in red) to all of these plans so that you can support our child with their learning in any way you can. To find out more, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s classteacher. Our Early Years team plan on a weekly basis and centred learning around the children’s interests and their personal development.
