Curriculum Summary

English is taught through the use of Read Write Inc. (RWI) and Literacy and Language all children in KS1 and Reception are grouped according to their reading ability. Maths is taught using the Mathematics Mastery approach.

As an academy, we also use the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) to enhance our curriculum. IPC is effective in enabling pupils to apply skills and knowledge acquired in English and Maths, and other curriculum areas in a purposeful and concrete way.  The school has linked all topic areas to the key skills children should learn in Science, History, Geography, DT, Computing, Art and Music/Dance.

Our children are assessed against the key objectives using a tracking tool called Classroom Monitor. This gives us a clear picture of the children’s progress against their age expected targets.

Ruth Miskin – We have been awarded with a 2018-2019 Ruth Miskin Training Accreditation Badge.

We are a “Get Reading. Keep Reading. Change Everything.” school.

We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers with the best chance of success in the KS1 tests.

Ruth Miskin Training recognise us for teaching the programme with fidelity and passion – we know what it takes to make reading and writing pleasurable and rewarding for our children.

This badge recognises that we:

  • Raise standards in reading and writing for our children
  • Are all expertly trained by Ruth Miskin Training – including our headteacher, Mrs Wood
  • Gain the latest programme updates through regular visits from our Ruth Miskin Consultant Trainer
  • Support our most vulnerable readers with extra one-to-one teaching every day.
