Primary School

Together We Achieve


We set out to provide all pupils with a broad and balanced educational experience which complies with the National Curriculum and with Nottinghamshire’s Statement of Curriculum Aims.  Our Curriculum follows a two year rolling programme to take into account the mixed age classes. We will be following cycle B this year.


The National Curriculum is a continuous educational programme for children aged between 5 and 16 which progresses through four key stages.  Key stages 1 and 2 are the responsibility of the primary school. 3 and 4 are completed at secondary school.  Children in the Foundation Stage follow the Early Years Framework.


All children are entitled to be taught the ‘core’ subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and the statutory subjects of R.E along with the ‘Foundation’ subjects of Computing, Design and Technology, Music, PE, Art and Design, History, Geography and Languages.  Additional areas and themes such as Environmental Education provide vital cross-curricular elements.  Teachers select appropriate topics and themes which are studied  in full term or half-term blocks.


Every child has their own individual targets which are set annually in Reading, Writing & Maths.  

A normal school week will provide 23.5 hours of teaching, with some 60 per cent of this devoted to Maths, English and Science.


We have developed a new Curriculum in line with the National Curriculum 2014.  

You can find each Classes Curriculum themes on the class pages.  Termly information evenings are held to focus on specific aspects of the curriculum.  Should parents wish to find out more about the curriculum and what their child is studyng you welcome to come and discuss it with the class teacher.
