The National Curriculum is taught through a mixture of themes on topics, subject-specific lessons and the teaching of skills. Within our themes, we work with the children’s interests to cover a range of subject areas, with the local environment, wider community and first-hand experiences being used as a resource for learning.
We believe that it is vital that the children’s education relates to the world they live in, giving it meaning and relevance.
Within each area of their learning, children will develop knowledge, concepts and skills. Through our teaching of the National Curriculum, we provide children with the skills required for lifelong learning. Within the school’s curriculum, the children work on what we call ‘core’ and ‘personalised’ learning; core learning is what the NC states children need to learn; personalised is where children can explore their interests and choose their learning focus.
