EVERY CHILD DESERVES A HIGH QUALITY AND APPROPRIATE CURRICULUM. WE FOLLOW THE GUIDANCE OF THE NATIONAL CURRICULUM FOR OUR CORE AND FOUNDATION SUBJECTS AND THE WESTMINSTER CURRICULUM FOR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION.
The curriculum is designed to ensure that children receive their entitlement to a broad curriculum and all statutory elements of the National Curriculum in the long term with a continuity and progression of skills, knowledge and understanding.
Our school has unique characteristics, such as mobility and a high percentage of children with English as an Additional Language so we have responded to this by providing a curriculum and approach to teaching that is appropriate for these needs. There are lots of opportunities for practical work and speaking and listening activities to embed learning. All classes also have termly outings or workshops to enhance the unit of study. This is to give them access to specialist resources or teaching that are not available in school.
All foundation subjects are taught in units over half a term. Details of this can be found on the curriculum map. Maths, English and Reading are taught every day and children have access to Science, History or Geography, Music, Computing and PE every week.
