We have designed our own curriculum. We have called it ‘Learning Layers’. It covers all aspects of the National Curriculum but it a way that we think can be understood by everyone!

How do we assess pupils’ Learning and Progress?
Information regarding phonics and reading
CHILDREN WHO READ SUCCEED!
The reading scheme used is Oxford Reading Tree moving onto Wolf Hill. Our children learn phonics using the Letters and Sounds programme. This is a systematic synthetic approach which ensures progress across EYFS and KS1. Phase 1 is started in Nursery, children move through phase 2 and 3 in Reception, Year 1 children complete phase 3 and move onto phase 4 and 5 and in year 2 phase 5 is completed and children move onto phase 6. All pupils have a daily phonics session. In KS2, we identify children’s phonic gaps and they are addressed through small group interventions.
Learning at Home
Our school uses Learning Logs. Activities for these Logs are set weekly.
