The school curriculum fulfils all the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage, National Curriculum and the Diocesan Syllabus for Religious Education. The staff and governors fully endorse the entitlement of every pupil to experience a broad and balanced curriculum.  The curriculum is enhanced by educational school trips and by inviting visitors into the school. We have high expectations for all of our children in all areas of school life and are extremely proud of our school’s long standing record of high academic achievement.

Reading Schemes and Phonics

We do not follow one reading scheme but use a number of schemes to allow for breadth of vocabulary. All of our books are colour coded to allow for progression and this also allows for pupils to have an element of choice when changing their reading books.

For help in supporting your child's reading, please take a look at our further information sheet Love Reading 

The reading schemes we use include:

  • Oxford Reading Tree
  • Ginn 360
  • Read Write Inc
  • New Way
  • Jelly and Bean
  • Dandelion
  • Big Cat

Phonics sessions are planned by using Read Write Inc throughout the school.
