From September 2014 the new National Curriculum for state schools in England was introduced. As a school we have planned a creative curriculum incorporating all aspects of the new expectations.
You will find below the National Curriculum (2014) statutory requirements, for each National Curriculum Year Group, mapped by core and non-core subject. The documents show the statutory areas that the children must be taught by year group for the core subjects (English, Maths and Science) and non-core. All non-core subjects are broken down by Key Stage and our curriculum plan ensures there is progressive coverage of these areas.
We believe that all children should have access to a broad, balanced and creative curriculum, which offers a wide range of experiences and opportunities and is appropriate to all. The organisation and planning of the curriculum is based on the requirements of the National Curriculum with support from the DfEE guidelines.
Our curriculum aims to develop knowledge, skills and awareness, so that children can work confidently and with enjoyment.
In the Early Years social development is a central aim of the curriculum to help form positive attitudes and relationships. The curriculum will ensure that a child’s start in education is positive, welcoming and supports whole child development. The home/school partnership is essential in the process.
There is a main emphasis on the core subjects of mathematics, English, ICT alongside Religious Education. These are supported by a variety of foundation subjects.
