The Whole Curriculum

The basic curriculum as prescribed in law - the four core and eight foundation subjects of the National Curriculum - is not intended to be the whole curriculum of this school.

The whole curriculum involves a range of policies and practices to promote the personal and social development of our pupils and our aim is that it should be balanced and broadly based.

Within the curriculum we aim to foster children's understanding of life in a multi-cultural society. We are most concerned that boys and girls should receive equal treatment in the academic and social life of the school.

The basic curriculum will be taught according to the requirements of the appropriate National Curriculum Documents. These documents are available in school to be seen at any time.

The progress of each individual child throughout the National Curriculum is carefully assessed and monitored by the class teacher. A file is kept for each child which contains copies of reports, and all relevant records.
