Introduction

Teaching and learning fall into three broad areas:
 
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) - Nursery and Reception
Key Stage 1 (KS1) - Year 1 and Year 2
Key Stage 2 (KS2) - Year 3 and Year 4
 
Nursery and Reception follow the statutory framework for EYFS and Years 1-4 follow the National Curriculum. All staff work closely together to ensure continuity, consistency and excitement are key factors in planning. The curriculum is enhanced by visits and specialist input from a variety of sources.
 
In addition we have curriculum enrichment weeks each half term. These are designed to further stimulate interest in selected areas. This year they are as follows: 
 

Maths W/B 19.10.15 Lead: Mrs. Dowdney

Creative Arts W/B 30/11/15 Lead: Mrs. Bower, Miss Walker and Mrs. Foreman

Science and Computing W/B 08.02.16 Lead: Mr. Dey and Mr. Wright

English W/B 21.03.16 Lead: Mrs. Lister

Design Technology W/B 23.05.16 Lead: Mrs. Foreman and Mr. Benefield

Physical Education W/B 04.07.16 Lead: Miss Mordey

Our whole school focus for 2015-16 is writing.
