The National Curriculum in Key Stage 2 consists of 10 subjects which all children must study at school. The subjects are Mathematics, English, Science, Design and Technology, Information and Communication Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art and Design, and Physical Education.
These subjects are called "foundation" subjects with English, Mathematics and Science also being known as the "core" subjects.
Personal, Social and Health Education and Drama are catered for in a cross-curricular approach.
Progress in all areas of the curriculum is monitored and assessed, particularly in the Core subjects.
We must also offer Religious Education (R.E.) and provide daily collective worship, but parents can decide whether or not their child takes part.
The teaching staff is fully committed to developing the curriculum for the maximum benefit of the children. To help this, they attend courses, meet with co-ordinators from other schools, hold regular curriculum staff meetings, visit other schools and so on, to improve professionalism and to keep up to date with educational initiatives.
