What We Learn
How We Organise the Curriculum
(so both the lessons and the learning are memorable)
As a United Kingdom Voluntary Controlled Church of England school accountable to Worcestershire Local Authority, we follow the National Curriculum (DfE 2013) and the Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus for RE (revised 2020).
We use Essential Letters and Sounds as a Systematic Synthetic Phonics programme to ensure consistency in Early Reading. Our reception children learn and are assessed in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We are currently undergoing a curriculum review, developing the vision and pedagogy for this new decade. As curriculum materials are developed they will be made available here.
The core subjects of the National Curriculum are English, Maths and Science and in a church school RE is also a core subject.
In mathematics we are currently following the White Rose Maths progression and using the resources as a starting point for teaching.
Our exciting and innovative cross-curricular projects combine the National Curriculum subjects into immersive and engaging learning experiences. The real-world outcomes allow children to take risks, experience challenge, deal with disappointment and failure, success sand triumph and go on Physical, Mental and Emotional journeys which allow academic progress and development of character.
Full details of coverage for each term of the academic year are available on the class pages.
Below are the documents which organise the statutory content of the National Curriculum which teachers use to plan their cross curricular projects.
