Curriculum Policy - reviewed January 2020

National Curriculum

The core subjects are English, Maths, Religious Education (RE), and Science The foundation subjects are Music, Art, Physical Education, History, Design Technology, Computing and Geography. For each subject programmes of study set out what pupils should be taught and attainment targets set out the expected standards of pupils' performance.

On-going assessment is also vital to inform our planning. Children are more formally assessed in line with national expectations at the age of 7 (Key Stage 1) and 11 (Key Stage 2). Pupils in Year 1 also take part in a Phonics Screening test at the end of the year. Pupils in Year 4 take part in the Time tables tests.
