Primary curriculum

We follow the National Curriculum, as made statutory from 2014. The curriculum contains the programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects, at all key stages. You can view the national curriculum here:

English and Maths follows the National Curriculum as outlined at the link above. We broaden all curriculums to ensure mastery and assess pupils against age specific targets as well as school specific targets which show mastery.
