The content and balance of the work throughout the school is in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum. There are detailed policies and schemes of work for all core and foundation subjects, copies of which can be obtained from the Headteacher.
Children may be taught as a whole class, in small groups or individually depending on the subject and the lesson. Junior children might work some of the time in sets, which are organised according to ability for aspects of literacy and numeracy.
English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, French, Music, Information and Communication Technology, Design and Technology, Religious Education, Art and PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education) are all taught systematically, using a cross-curricular approach where appropriate. Physical education, including swimming, and games is given great importance.
Class teachers closely monitor the process of all their children. If individuals cause concern they are referred to our Special Education Needs Co-ordinator who will advise on the necessary educational programme to put in place. Parents are fully informed throughout the process.
Further details of the curriculum can be found within the prospectus.
