Curriculum planning

Whole School Plan

We plan our curriculum around topics and incorporate many aspects and styles of learning. To support us in this we use the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage Curricula.  To support our phonics teaching (and broader literacy skills) we are using the Read Write Inc scheme and for reading we use book bands supported by our racing readers and our well-stocked library which children access weekly.  We use a "Mastery" approach to teaching maths across school. 

Personal, Social and Health Education/Social, Moral, Spirtual and Cultural/Global Learning

Our children access these key areas of our curriculum in a variety of ways.  Sometimes they are taught as discreet lessons or subjects (as in some of our PSHE work) but more importantly they exist as key threads throughout the children's experience of school including the school ethos and values, the role model provided by all adults in school, expectations of behaviour, assemblies, visits and visitors and the prioritisation of wellbeing, including the support given to individual children.  The whole school plan below guides our assemblies and provides a framework for the learning objectives which we address in school.  Whole school events provide a key element of learning in these areas and can be viewed under "Curriculum Events".
