The governors of our school accept the general aims set out in the Devon Curriculum Statement.
The core subjects of mathematics, science and English play a central role in the curriculum. Each class has a daily literacy and numeracy lesson; these usually take place in the morning.
In addition the children undertake work in art/craft, design and technology, geography, history, information and communications technology, music, PE (which includes games, gymnastics, dance and swimming), religious and personal and social education.
We continually assess and record class work and each child's individual progress. Your child's teacher will always be happy to discuss with you the work that he/she has planned for your child and to talk about your child's progress. Parents have the opportunity to discuss their child's progress at one of the three open evenings held throughout the year. In addition parents receive an annual written report.
We endeavour to provide abroad and balanced curriculum, relevant to the children's needs. Planning is mainly in the form of cross-curricular activities, within the framework provided by the National Curriculum. Care is taken to ensure that work is matched to the abilities of individual children.
Should you wish to see documents or regulations relating to the national curriculum please contact the headteacher. If at any time you are concerned about the curriculum your child is receiving please discuss this with the classteacher and headteacher. However, if you are not satisfied there is a procedure for making a formal complaint to the school governing body. Details of this may be obtained from school.
