Foundation Subjects

Our curriculum is broad, balanced and meets the requirements of the national curriculum. It has a project-based, thematic approach and provides children with a range of rich and memorable learning experiences.
The foundation subjects – history, geography, design and technology, art and design and music – are integrated into each project and provide enrichment across the curriculum. The following links show curriculum coverage of each subject for each year group.

PHSE and citizenship
PHSE and citizenship are important aspects of our curriculum and are taught both discretely and within the projects.  We follow the Jigsaw programme.

ICT and computing
The core skills of ICT are taught as a discrete programme across school. However, other elements of the computing curriculum are integrated into the curriculum as part of project work. These include e-safety, digital publication and presentation, research, data handling and the use of digital media.

Timetables
Each year group has a set of non-negotiable allocations for various aspects of the curriculum, including English, mathematics and PE. Teachers are free to arrange their afternoon timetable to make the most of cross-curricular opportunities and the needs of pupils. Sometimes subjects and activities might be ‘blocked’ or run over successive afternoons.
