We, like every other state primary school, follow the National
Curriculum in accordance with our legal requirements.
Pupils in the Reception class work towards the Early Learning Goals
for the Early Years and at the earliest stages of the National
Curriculum. Pupils in Year 1 and Year 2 will be working in Key Stage
1 of the National Curriculum and those in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 will
continue through to Key Stage 2
This is a nationally set programme for the children, in which your child
will be formally tested as to what they know, understand and can do
at the ages of 7 and 11. At each of these ages, you will be informed as to how your child has
performed in the tests and you will be given a clear idea of how this compares with other
children of his/her age both in this school and nationally.
The core of the National Curriculum is the study of English, Mathematics and Science. These
subjects will be taught and experienced by the children from the Reception Year onwards.
Alongside this core are the seven foundation subjects of History, Geography, Design
Technology, Information Technology, Music, Art, Physical Education and Religious Education.
