Our curriculum aims to be interesting, fun, exciting and challenging.

Children will learn through a 'creative curriculum', which has been carefully planned around varying topics to include all areas of the National Curriculum. You can download our 'Long Term Plan' here. Our theme for the Autumn Term 2016 is 'Exploration'.


 Phonics: Our phonics scheme has been developed within school using a combination of different phonics schemes. These include Letters and Sounds, Read Write Inc., Floppy’s Phonics and LCP phonics. Children are taught phonics daily in Reception to Year Two and as needed in other Year Groups.


Reading: In Class One we use a mixture of Oxford Reading Tree, All Aboard and ‘free readers’. We listen to all children read every day. In Class Two we still listen to many children read individually every day. Class Two have their own reading scheme which includes a range of books from many different publishers which are levelled to make sure they are appropriately matched to meet the needs of each individual.


RE: We follow the newly developed Catholic Scheme, 'Come and See' to deliver our RE in school.
