We follow the National Curriculum. If you would like to look at in detail, please follow this link:

Our curriculum and assessment policy is here: (reviewed 2018)

We have a two year rolling programme of topics


In Early Years/ Key Stage one, we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' phonics programme. We have a colour-coded reading scheme that is linked to the County reading scheme. Children are encouraged to read widely at a particular level before moving on to the next stage. For more information, please see the website section on 'reading'.

At Key Stage two, we follow the national curriculum programme of phonics and spelling. For those children who require additional support, we follow the 'Alpha to Omega' programme, which is a structured system of spelling, handwriting, aural dictation and sentence construction. If you would like more detailed information, please speak to our Senco, Jane Howard.
