At Eythorne Elvington School we aim to offer a broad based curriculum in line with National Curriculum requirements with an overall focus on the education of the whole child. However, a particular emphasis is placed on pupils’ achievements in Literacy and Numeracy.

A whole school curriculum map is in place and the staff work in key stages to ensure consistency, balance and progression of the curriculum both across and between year groups. Pupils may complete the given tasks individually, with a partner, as a member of a small group or as a whole class depending on the activity. The School’s Assessment Policy ensures that staff are continuously focusing on pupil achievement and hence pupil performance and standards.
The Curriculum reflects national and local requirements: The National Curriculum is divided into two parts:

English, Information and Communication Technology, Mathematics and

Religious Education

Art, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Music, Physical

The Curriculum

We aim to meet the needs of every pupil by providing a broad and balanced curriculum where all children can experience success, build on strengths and recognise and improve upon their weaknesses.

The Foundation Stage Curriculum applies to children from three years of age to the end of the reception year. In our school all children join us at the beginning of the school year in which they are five (compulsory schooling begins at the start of the term after a child’s fifth birthday). The Foundation Stage Curriculum is important in its own right, and in preparing children for later schooling

The Foundation Stage Curriculum

On entry to school pupils experience the Foundation Stage curriculum which comprises of six areas of learning:

• Personal, social and emotional development
• Communication, language and literacy
• Mathematical development
• Knowledge and understanding of the world
• Physical development
• Creative development

The curriculum for the Foundation Stage in our school reflects the areas of learning identified in the Early Learning Goals. Our curriculum is carefully planned to provide a structure for learning that has a range of starting points and content that matches the needs of young children and activities that provide for learning both indoors and outdoors. Through play and first hand experiences we endeavour to enable our youngest children make sense of the world; building upon and extending their knowledge, experience and interests whilst developing their self esteem, independence and confidence.

The Early Learning Goals are in line with the objectives in the National Literacy Strategy and the National Numeracy Strategy. By the end of the reception year children have daily mathematics and literacy sessions.


There are approximately 120 pupils on the school roll and, at present, classes are organised as follows:

Class 1 - Year R/1 - Miss R Facey
Class 2 - Year 1/2 - Mrs S Stephens
Class 3 - Year 3 - Mr S Gawthorpe
Class 4 - Year 4/5 - Mrs D Buckley
Class 5 - Year 5/6 - Mrs C Collard

All parents receive a written report in term 6. Parent/Teacher consultation evenings are held during terms 1 and 6, although parents are most welcome to discuss their child’s progress at any time throughout the year. However, staff are busy in the morning preparing for the school day; please make an appointment to talk to your child’s teacher through the office after school if you would like to discuss your child’s progress.
