The national curriculum provides children with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. It introduces children to the best that has been thought and said; and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.
The national curriculum is just one element in the education of every child. There is time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year to range beyond the national curriculum specifications. The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.
The school uses the National Curriculum. The curriculum is taught across a cycle of two years at KS1 and four years at KS2. Below is the detail of our curriculum. A whole school overview of our curriculum for religious education is provided at the end.
