Curriculum and Assessment

What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.

The Big Picture

To make sure that our learning is fresh and exciting every year, and that we squeeze in all of the lovely topics of the National Curriculum, we have a two year cycle in place.


Breaking it down

Each term, your child's class teacher will publish a topic web so that you can see more detail about what they will be learning and how it all fits together. You'll find these in the class pages.

Week by week

For even more detail about what's happening in class, you can check-out the weekly class newsletters.

We know that performance in national standardised tests (SATs) is important. We work hard to ensure that children are well prepared for these, and we're pleased to say that the school's performance in them has improved rapidly. However, we go out of our way not to turn them into too big a deal. We will not stop lessons in other areas of the curriculum, we will not be sending home practice test, after practice test for months beforehand. We will be educating the whole child, considering their mental well-being and giving them opportunities to shine in ways perhaps not covered in a SATs test. We offer briefings for Year 2&6 parents in the Autumn term so they know what to expect, and can support us in making tests just another part of school life, not the be all and end all.
