Core Subjects


The main objective of teaching English is to enable the children to develop fully the understanding and use of English, through Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. The development of these skills is fundamental to success in all other areas of the curriculum. Children take part in a wide range of activities in which they are encouraged to discuss, ask questions, tell stories, share ideas and to be active listeners.

A love of literature will be fostered and an active use of our Library will be encouraged. Children will be given the opportunity to take home books to share with their families A Reading Log will be used to promote home involvement.


The National Curriculum provides a framework for the mathematical content that the children are to be taught each term. This includes the development of mental and oral mathematical as well as written activities. We use a range of resources to support the Maths curriculum. Communicating and presenting ideas, thinking and problem-solving, are key skills that we aim to develop. We teach the children that mathematics has a practical application in our everyday life.


The computing curriculum is intended to enable pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology.

Please see for full details of the National Curriculum that we implement for core and foundation subjects.
