Pupils in Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which works towards a set of Early Learning Goals. The Foundation Stage prepares children for Learning in Key Stage 1 and aims to ensure children have the necessary learning and social skills to be successful in school. The National Curriculum begins in year 1 which comprises of three core subjects (English, Mathematics and Science) and other subjects (Computing, Design and Technology, History, Languages, Geography, Music, Art and Design and Physical Education) as well as Religious Education and Relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education.
Our curriculum, which includes all areas of the National Curriculum, is progressive and ensures children's knowledge, skills and vocabulary build on prior learning in a structured way. Topics are presented in a way that hook the children and inspires them to ask questions and get excited about their learning. The curriculum is purposefully enriched to consolidate and deepen learning, allowing children to apply new knowledge and skills.
More information about our curriculum and how it is enriched can be found below.
