Foundation Year / Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which has 17 early learning goals, these include: Prime areas of Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development; and Specific areas of Literacy (reading and writing), Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressing Arts and Design.
Swimming is part of our PE curriculum and all children go swimming for the whole year 1x per week in Year 3.
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. Please make sure your child has correct PE kit in school every day.
S.R.E (Sex, Relationship & Emotional) education is taught in all year groups as part of PSHE and Science. Years 5 & 6 also have a discreet S.R.E programme focusing on body changes and hygiene.
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).
