Primary Curriculum

Maths and English lessons happen every day in the Primary Phase and we make opportunities for pupils to use these skills in other lessons and real life situations too. In order to make education fun, memorable and relevant we choose a theme each half term that relates to pupil interests. Through these themed lessons pupils experience a broad range of activities and foundation subjects (see our Primary curriculum theme Map, below). We place a great deal of importance on life skills, communication and self-management and so these skills are taught and assessed within the themed lessons and in other opportunities across the curriculum. PE, PSHE, RE, science and computing are taught independently and may also be linked to our theme.
