Curriculum

The School Curriculum

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all children and aim to make learning varied and interesting. Information is sent home every term outlining the topics covered in all subject areas. Children are timetabled from the start with specialist teachers, though Year 5 classes are taught in their area as much as possible.

• As soon as children start in Year 5, they are placed in ability groups for Maths and English.

• Some lesson groups are taught in mixed ability classes: most practical subject groups especially further up the school have smaller class sizes.

• Swimming instruction takes place at local facilities if children are not able to swim 25 metres.
