Literacy and Numeracy are the core skills in your child’s primary education and we focus on ensuring all children are fluent in these skills so that they have a ‘toolkit’ for lifelong learning. Every individual’s needs are carefully planned for, and enjoyment and passion for learning and thinking is carefully nurtured.
In all areas of the curriculum, from Science to Geography, Art to Music, children are encouraged to make comparisons, investigate, enquire, and explore. Areas of the curriculum are often linked together in order to make learning more meaningful and children are given opportunities to practice and apply their core literacy and numeracy skills within all subjects.
We teach phonics using the letters and sounds and we use the Oxford Reading Tree (ORT) as our core reading scheme. Click here for more information.
We have a fully equipped ICT suite and an additional 22 laptops and 10 ipads children are able to learn and apply ICT skills in all areas of the curriculum.
We have high expectations of all our children to achieve and do their best whilst staying safe, being healthy, and most importantly of all, enjoying their time at Primary School.
The National Curriculum is the statutory document that gives guidance for all state maintained schools. This document outlines the expectations for the knowledge, skills and understanding your child will acquire over their time in primary school. A new national Curriculum has been introduced in September 2013 and all classes (except Y2 and Y6) will be following this curriculum from September 2014.
