Curriculum Content


We have adapted our school curriculum in light of the New National Curriculum, introduced in September 2014. We continue to provide a broad, balanced curriculum that:

  • helps children to develop their sense of identity and belonging and can make a positive contribution to society
  • prepares our children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in modern Britain
  • engages children through exciting, thematic topics
  • is adapted to suit the needs of all learners in line with our SEN local offer
  • utilises features of our local and wider BW MAT communities, including a wide range of extra curricular activities
  • builds on key literacy and numeracy basic skills
  • enables children to develop respect for and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own, to combat prejudice
  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of children
  • prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experience of later life


Our approach to Reading and Phonics is through the SSP Little Wandle Letters and Sounds. We use White Rose to support the teaching of Maths and Talk for Writing for English. Our PE teaching is developed through the use of Real PE and PSHE teaching is underpinned by the Jigsaw programme.
