  5. Literacy.
  6. Understanding the world.
  7. Expressive arts and development.

The Primary Curriculum covers the following subjects:

  1. Literacy.
  2. Numeracy.
  3. Science.
  4. Humanities (History, Geography and C.R.E).
  5. Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Development (PSHE).
  6. Design and Technology(D&T).

Concepts, knowledge and skills are delivered through exciting themes and topics that keep the children enthused about what they are learning.

Assessment and Planning

  1. Comprehensive and regular assessment through observation and interaction with the children.
  2. SATs for the Primary section.
  3. Low pupil-adult ratios allow for better knowledge of the children and their abilities which inform our planning, leading to meeting of children’s needs.
  4. Child participation in the assessment process so that they intentionally participate and take responsibility for their learning process.
