The New Primary Curriculum

‘Activities capture pupils’ attention and they show great delight in all that they are asked to do and rise to their teachers’ high expectations.’ OFSTED THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM IN ENGLAND

Every state-funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:
* Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
* Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that our school plans for its pupils. The National Curriculum forms one part of the school curriculum. All state schools are also required to make provision for a daily act of collective worship and must teach religious education to pupils at every key stage. Maintained schools in England are legally required to follow the statutory National Curriculum which sets out in programmes of study, on the basis of key stages, subject content for those subjects that should be taught to all pupils. All schools must publish their school curriculum by subject and academic year online.

All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice. Schools are also free to include other subjects or topics of their choice in planning and designing their own programme of education.

Below there is the powerpoint from the recent curriculum evening for parents and other relevant documentation such as the links to the curriculum overview for each class in our school.

Please note that these may be subject to change as the year progresses due to the interests and needs of the children.

See the class pages for further information about each class timetables and routines.
