We aim to teach a broad and balanced curriculum that recognises the multicultural society we live in. We follow the National Curriculum in all subject areas using nationally recognised schemes of work. Teachers plan carefully each week and we have a clear curriculum map, which avoids duplication and ensures continuity of learning.
Children are taught in three broad bands of ability in each class. Work is clearly matched to ability and each child has individual targets in English and Maths. Most lessons follow a three-part structure, introduction and whole class teaching, group work with a focused teaching group and a conclusion with feed forward to the next lesson.
Sex education is addressed through the Science curriculum, although formal sex education and talks on puberty are taught separately at Year 6 with support from our local School Nurse. Parents can see the materials used and can withdraw their children from this if they so wish.
All documents relating to National Curriculum schemes, Ofsted reports and whole school policies are available in school and the Headteacher will be happy to receive requests to look at these.
