Children in Years 1 - Year 6 follow a broad and balanced curriculum in line with the National Curriculum 2014. This includes: Mathematics, English, Science, Geography, History, Design Technology, Art and Design, Music, PE, Languages (French) and Computing. We also teach Religious Education based on the Wolverhampton Agreed Syllabus, Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship Education (PSHE); Social, Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) and Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSE) which links to aspects of learning in PSHE, science and PE. Years 4, 5 & 6 also have a discreet S.R.E programme focusing on body changes and hygiene.
Foundation Year / Reception children follow the the new EYFS framework as of 1st September 2021 which contains 7 areas and the Early Learning Goals children will be working towards throughout the year. There are 3 prime areas (Personal, Social & Emotional Development, Communication & Language and Physical Development) and 4 specific areas (Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world and Expressive Arts & Design).
Swimming is part of our PE curriculum and all children in Year 6 go swimming for half a year per class.
As PE is a required part of the curriculum all children are expected to take part, should there be a medical reason why they should not, a note to school will be required.
There is also a hidden curriculum where we aim to develop respect and responsibility for both our school and the wider community and an understanding and acceptance of their role within it. We recognise children as individuals and help in developing their individuality within a stable and secure environment. We encourage the sharing of views and beliefs with children and adults. We value honesty, respect, consideration and developing self-discipline and believe in SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning).
