Children in the reception classes follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Details about this area can be found by following the link on the left.

Whilst the majority of the curriculum is taught with a single subject focus, teachers take every opportunity to link curriculum areas where this is considered appropriate.  For example, much of the material used within the study of non-fiction reading and writing in literacy will be drawn from other curriculum areas.

The use of Information Communications Technology for all children is embedded within the curriculum.  Its delivery includes the direct teaching of specific skills and knowledge as well as practical application within the children’s work.
