Curriculum

The Primary school follows a combination of the Cambridge Primary Curriculum, for English, Mathematics and Science, and the National Curriculum of England and Wales for History, Geography, Design and Technology, Personal, Social and Health Education, Art, Music, ICT and PE.

Our text books vary, with Collins International Primary English as our core English text and work book, complemented by the Nelson English range of text books and Global English text and work books for the support learners. For Mathematics, we use Abacus Active Learn as an online site, supported by the Abacus Primary Learn Mathematics text and work books. The Nelson International Science books, complemented by Ginn Star Science, are used for our science lessons. Geography is supported by the Collins Primary Geography books. History lessons are backed by such books as the Collins Primary History books, which teachers use to assist them in delivering their lessons and organising activities. Teachers use the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) books to promote PHSE lessons.

Careful planning by teachers, assistant teachers, support teachers and specialist teachers is constructed by all stakeholders involved. The planning templates are structured to reflect those in the United Kingdom and are checked weekly by the Deputy Principal. Strands that connect each subject are worked out so that the curriculum is delivered in a holistic manner.
