The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.

The National Curriculum 2014

The school follows the 2014 National Curriculum for all subjects.  Maths and English are in line with the National Curriculum and according to the ability of each child.  Children are assessed regularly using Target Tracker to inform the planning of teachers.

The school follows the Locally Agreed RE syllabus.

ICT, PE and Science are taught discretely and are embedded throughout the curriculum.

Phonics is taught at Key Stage 1 using Letters and Sounds.


Reading is taught primarily through The Oxford Reading scheme supplemented by a variety of other schemes.

All pupils receive a high quality guided reading session at least once a week.

Every child will have a home/school reading diary and the opportunity to take home an appropriately levelled book. Parents are asked to support school by commenting in the diary. Children are expected to read regularly at home, a minimum of 3 times per week.

We have a creative approach to the curriculum which is supported by the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).  The IPC units are planned to ensure that the children cover all aspects of the National Curriculum.  The long term plan of units include  History, Geography, Art, Design Technology and Music.

The long term plan, for each year group for 2017/18 is:
