Curriculum

Our Curriculum is constantly under review and in the summer term of 2019 we will be designing the curriculum that meets the needs of our local community. We want our pupils to excel in the basics of Reading, Writing and Mathematics but we also want to use the local knowledge and expertise within our community to enhance the experiences of all our pupils. Our curriculum should be broad and balanced. 

We hope to ensure from September 2019 the new curriculum will excite, inspire and motivate our pupils to excel.

Tests and assessments

Year 1 phonics screening check

The check will take place in June when your child will read 40 words out loud to a teacher. You’ll find out how your child did, and their teacher will assess whether he or she needs extra help with reading. If your child doesn’t do well enough in the check they’ll have to do it again in Year 2.

Key stage 1

Key stage 1 tests cover:

  • English reading
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • maths

Your child will take the tests in May. You can ask the school for the test results.

You’ll be sent the results of your child’s teacher assessments automatically.

Key stage 2

Your child will take national tests in May when they reach the end of key stage 2. These test your child’s skills in:

  • English reading
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • maths

The tests last less than 4 hours. You’ll get the results in July.

The school will send you the results of your child’s tests and teacher assessments.
