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.


Like many primary schools, we find that an integrated topic-based approach to the curriculum is the best way to deliver the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum.


In the Early Years Foundation Stage although planning covers all statutory requirements, our capable teaching staff try, where possible, to respond to the children's interests.  This ensures that we maximise their interest and engagement.

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.

The school follows the NYCC syllabus for PSHE and for Relationships and Sex Education

Computing, 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 daily at home. This may include newspapers, comics, magazines, library books etc. Home readers will not be changed daily but will be changed when appropriate.

We have a creative approach to the curriculum and integrate both core and foundation subjects around a theme .The themes are introduced through a class book to motivate and inspire a love of reading and writing. Themes are planned termly to ensure that the children cover all aspects of the National Curriculum.  The long term plans include the foundation subjects ( History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Computing, Languages, PE and Music).
