Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Curriculum

From Years 1 through to 6, children have formal daily Numeracy and Literacy lessons. For Literacy, Key Stage 1 follow the Success For All (SFA) scheme and the children are grouped according to their reading comprehension level for their SFA literacy lessons into either Reading Roots groups (1a or below) or Writing Wings groups (2c and above). Roots children follow SFA synthetic phonics programme whereas Wings children follow Support for Spelling. At Key Stage 2 the children follow the requirements of the new National Curriculum using the Power of Reading as a basis for their work.

For Numeracy both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 follow the requirements and expectations from the new National Curriculum.

Children in Years 1-6 have weekly discreet SEAL, RE, Science, ICT, PE, Handwriting and Grammar. In addition to this, Year 4 have a weekly Soundstart Ukelele music session. A modern foreign language is taught at KS2 at at present this is Italian. PE and sport are taught through a combination of specialist sports coaches and teacher input. Key Stage 2 children go swimming in Years 3 and 5 for the whole year to ensure that children have a sustained opportunity to develop their swimming skills.
