Dream, Believe, Achieve... And Make A Difference!

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum for early years (Nursery and Reception) is developed from the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

 

Much of our curriculum for key stages 1 and 2 (Years 1 to 6) is developed from the statutory National Curriculum.

 

Although there is no national curriculum for the following subjects, we outline below how we have approached these:

 

  • religious education - we have adopted the Hillingdon Locally Agreed Syllabus;
  • personal, social and health education - we mainly use the 'Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning' (SEAL) programme along with other resources as appropriate;
  • citizenship - we have developed units of study drawing from various resources in order to meet our children's needs at each stage of their primary education.

Teaching Reading

 

We draw on a wide range of resources to support our children's reading (including phonics):

 

  • Big Cat (Collins)

  • Rigby Star (Pearson)

  • Oxford Reading Tree

  • Ginn

  • Project X (Oxford University Press)

  • Tree Tops

  • Connectors

  • First News

  • Range of chapter books

 

Phonics:

We use 'Letters and Sounds' a phonics resource published by the Department for Education.

We also use Jolly Phonics as an approach to teaching synthetic phonics i.e. actions and songs to teach the sounds.

 

Handwriting:

Spectrum Handwriting Scheme
