Our Creative Curriculum is a carefully planned, thematic approach to teaching and learning. We deliver the national curriculum objectives through a range of topics that are designed to support children’s natural curiosity and stimulate their creativity. The EYFS Curriculum Map 2016-17 and KS1 & KS2 Curriculum Map: 2016-17 table links above show when each topic commences. The class year buttons at the top are where you can find out more detailed information about the creative curriculum topic covered each half term including a parents' curriculum guide and National expectations for each year group. Further down this page we have included some useful supplementary information, in the "Documents and external links" section below, including the new primary maths curriculum and our maths calculation policy.
Information regarding how some subject areas are taught can be viewed below. English link includes details about how PHONICS is taught in EYFS and KS1.

Meetings for Parents - How to support your child at home in Maths and Literacy.
From time to time our school will hold after school meetings for parents/carers with tips and strategies to help support their children at home when working on their maths and literacy homework. Letters will go home explaining where and when these meetings are to take place. Details of these meetings will be posted below on this page too.
