All LEA schools in England are required by law to follow the National Curriculum as set down by the DFEE.
The National Curriculum comprises :
English, Maths, Science, ICT, Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art, P.E. and PSHE.
R.E. is covered at assembly time and as a curriculum subject.
The National Curriculum specifies essential teaching within each subject area. At Rosliston the National Curriculum is broadly covered as a two yearly cycle covering all subjects. A variety of teaching styles are used ranging from whole class, groups and individual programmes of work. A detailed curriculum plan is made for each class for every term.
Pupils in our Reception class follow the Foundation Sate curriculum and are assessed against this throughout their first year in school.
The National Curriculum is split at primary level into 2 Key Stages.
K.S.1 - Infant and K.S.2. - Junior.
The subjects at both Key Stages are the same, but the skills and knowledge are graded.
Children’s achievements in English, mathematics and science are formally assessed at the end of each Key Stage. and in English and Maths at the end of Y3, Y4 and Y5. We also assess reading ability annually from Y2. Other assessments are ongoing throughout the year.
