Our curriculum is delivered in a cross curricular style by teaching reading and writing through a topic–usually book-based–whilst also developing key skills across the foundation subjects. It is engaging, exciting and meaningful. We offer a curriculum in which the pupils have a say and are involved in the big picture. It is a curriculum that is enriched by real life activities and supported by trips, events and visitors. Our curriculum is reactive to current affairs in the community and the wider world. French is taught from FS2 (Reception) to Yr 6. Additionally, all children engage in an afternoon of activities, known as ’50 Things to Do Before You Leave Hady’, which gives pupils opportunities to engage in different experiences such as touch typing, learning sign language, different arts and crafts or even making mud pies!
We develop the 6 R’s, which are resilience, responsibility, resourcefulness, reflectiveness, respect and readiness. Children know their own targets and are actively involved in improving their learning and identifying their strengths and weaknesses through effective marking and feedback.
Please find below details of the National Curriculum. We are currently following Cycle A of our curriculum.
Changes are afoot in our EYFS unit! We are excited to announce that from September, we will have a separate nursery alongside two smaller Reception classes. We have had so much interest in nursery places this year that we have not been able to accommodate everyone’s wishes for extra hours or morning vs afternoon sessions. This has resulted in disappointment for some families and in other families being unable to attend our nursery as planned. A designated nursery class from September will allow us to offer a mix of full and part time places, up to about 12 full time and 28 part time.
