If you have any questions about our school curriculum, please ask your child's class teacher who will be pleased to respond. 

Curriculum Overview

In September 2014, the Government introduced a new National Curriculum, with a great deal of fresh content and ambitious expectations of learning. It is designed to provide children with the essential knowledge, skills and understanding that they require as citizens of Great Britain. 

In addition, the National Curriculum provides statutory programs of study for each subject, stating the content which should be taught to pupils in each stage of learning.

As a result of the new Curriculum, and a shift in our own methods of teaching, last year we adopted the Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum. This curriculum includes all National Curriculum subjects but exceeds the requirements of the National Curriculum. It sets out essential coverage, learning objectives and standards which are required for all subjects. Furthermore, it provides progress measures for all subjects including personal development. 

One of the primary reasons why we have chosen to adopt this curriculum is because it emphasises the importance of developing the depth of children’s learning. In essence, this means providing children with increased cognitive challenge, allowing them to apply the skills which they have learnt independently in a range of contexts rather than moving them onto the next skill needlessly when they have not truly mastered it.

Long Term Plans

Please note: Owing to the introduction of the new National Curriculum in 2014, the topic plan below is a guide, which may be altered and updated, during this academic year.
