Our Curriculum - The Big Picture

'Together, we RISE to the Challenge'

We deliver a curriculum that is broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated, to take account of individual strengths and weaknesses whilst providing for progression and continuity.  We achieve this through a creative learning approach. Teaching styles are varied and flexible to provide individuals, groups and classes with a stimulating and secure environment.
Our curriculum, which has recently been updated, in line with Curriculum 2014, is under constant review to enable us to meet the needs of our pupils whilst maintaining high expectations and setting challenging targets.

EYFS/Reception Year

The document below shows all of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Early Learning Goals (ELGs) that are statutory from September 2021.

The seven Areas of Learning are shown on one page for easy reference. Children in EYFS or their Reception year at school are working towards these goals and are assessed against them and this is reported to parents at the end of the school year. 

Apart from EYFS, our children are taught in vertically grouped classes.  This will mean that they access a curriculum that has a two year cycle.  The objectives from the documents below are selected by the teachers - to match what children need to learn - their next steps. Each document identifies where these objectives are taken from.

In EYFS and Year 1 we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' phonics programme.
