The National Curriculum
We follow the statutory requirement for children in Key Stage 1 and 2 to be taught the objectives of The National Curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music and Physical Education.
From September 2014, the National Curriculum will also include Computing and Modern Foreign Language. We follow the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.
Additionally, at our school, the curriculum also includes PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and Citizenship , swimming lessons from Reception to Year 6, and Spanish is currently taught in Key Stage 2.
Our school curriculum is planned through a whole school ‘framework’, which ensures that children receive their entitlement under the National Curriculum. Some areas of the curriculum are more easily ‘integrated’ and are taught through a topic or theme approach, whilst others will be taught as discrete subjects. We make use of the 'Cornerstones' themes throughout school where appropriate. Some work will be for the whole class, but sometimes your child will be part of a group, or working individually on tasks that are matched to ability.
Our objective is to help children to acquire skills that will establish good social and learning habits, to help them to become independent, questioning and adaptable learners. To achieve this, we promote an atmosphere of happiness and security. We try to base what we teach and what the children experience while they are in our school on the identifiable needs of the children of this age group.
