All pupils follow a broad and balanced curriculum which consists of the core and foundation subjects in the National Curriculum i.e. Mathematics, (Numeracy) English,(Literacy) Science, Design Technology, Computing, Geography, History, Music, Art, PE, PHSCE. The Ripon and Leeds Diocesan Scheme for R.E. is followed.
A balance between individual, group work and class teaching is aimed for throughout the school. The development of each child's basic skills and progress through the National Curriculum is carefully monitored and recorded. In our school there is an emphasis on the achievement of high personal standards in all areas. It is very important that children have a good attitude to their work and to their relationship with others.
We use the Rigby Reading Scheme across school. We also use the Jelly and Bean reading scheme in FS and KS1 which focuses on the teaching of reading through phonics. The children also have access to Bug Club, an online reading scheme and Mathletics, an online maths resource. Both of these can be accessed at school and at home.
Younger children (Foundation Stage) work generally to an integrated time table. Children in Key Stages 1 and 2 (Years 1,2,3,4,5,6) are taught using a variety of teaching strategies. The pattern of work will shift towards more individual subject teaching preparing the children for their transfer to High School.
