The National Curriculum

A new National Curriculum was introduced to all state funded schools in England on September 1st 2014. This document outlines the 'essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens.'
It states that children will study the core subjects of English, mathematics and science and other, foundation, subjects: art and design, computing, design and technology, geography, history, music, physical education and in Key Stage 2, languages.
Primary schools are also required to teach religious education and we follow Essex County Councils agreed syllabus across both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Parents have the right to withdraw children from assemblies and religious education lessons after consultation with the Headteacher. We also follow the non-statutory frameworks for Personal, Social and Health Education.

In delivering the curriculum we aim to achieve our vision statement of 'Inspiring all children to create and achieve' by:

  • Involving the children in their own learning
  • Promoting cross-curricular links and a thematic approach to ensure learning is relevant, purposeful and connected
  • Including an emphasis on the child's personal development
  • Using a variety of teaching styles that are active and interactive, so that all children can achieve
  • Embedding ICT across every subject so that technology enhances learning
  • Ensuring a clear progression of children's skills, knowledge and understanding
  • Applying English and mathematical skills to all areas of learning


Every child is taught how to swim in our outdoor pool.
