We are required to base our teaching on the National Curriculum for England. It sets out clear, full and statutory entitlement to learning for all pupils. It determines the content of what will be taught, and sets attainment targets for learning. It also determines how performance will be assessed and reported.  Further information can be found here.

Our drive is to have a curriculum which meets all statutory requirements of the National Curriculum and allows children to explore the world they live in and prepare for the opportunities and challenges of life in the 21st century.  We follow the Learning Challenge Curriculum for Foundation subjects which is built around questioning and helps to ‘hook’ the children into their learning.  We believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged and through the use of questioning, curiosity and challenge can be developed for all children.

We follow the South Tyneside Agreed Syllabus for R.E.

In addition, our phonics scheme is Read, Write Inc. and our book scheme is Book Banding.
