Subject Progression Documents 

Each area of the curriculum is carefully planned and sequenced to ensure progression within and across each year group. Please click on the subjects below to see our progression maps.

Curriculum Newsletters

We send termly Knowledge Organisers to parents and carers to share information about what pupils will be learning each term and the topic that will drive this learning. Please click here to see the latest curriculum newsletters for all year groups. 

Successful Learning

Successful learning attributes underpin our curriculum. They are fundamental skills that focus on how to learn and how to approach new or challenging scenarios. These attributes are introduced to the children in the Early Years and revisited and developed throughout Key Stage 1. These attributes are taught through explicit modelling, sharing examples and linking our experiences to them.
