Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education Curriculum
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, PSHCE. 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 a range of Reading Schemes to ensure we meet the needs of all of the children in school. We also use the Jelly and Bean reading scheme in FS and KS1 which focuses on the teaching of reading through phonics and we use the Collins Big Cat reading scheme in KS2. The Rigby Reading Scheme is also available throughout school. The other reading schemes are supplemented according to the needs of individual children with Project X books and Oxford Reading Tree books.
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.
In Phonics, we follow the Letters and Sounds programme. We also use Jolly Phonics and support children with individual needs using the Jelly and Bean intervention programme.
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.
