Our application of the National Curriculum
Like all good projects it has centred around discussion, collaboration, debate, midnight oil and Post-it notes!
At the same time, the Diocese changed our statutory RE syllabus too. This stands alone — although we endeavour to link as much of it as possible to other learning and our teaching of British Values (Heart knowledge). We have adapted the syllabus to match our school needs.

What's included in the National Curriculum ?
As a state school, we must follow the National Curriculum which is divided into a range of subjects, each has its own Programme of Study (English, Maths and Science) or Purpose of Study (all other subjects). These are split into Years 1, 2, 3 and 4*, 5 and 6*. Each Programme/Purpose of Study has specific Aims and Attainment Targets to be met by the end of a child’s time in that year.
To find out about all Programmes/Purpose of Study, follow this link in your web browser:
For Maths and Science, there are Programmes of Study for each Year 1 to 6. Other subjects are grouped for Y3/4 and 5/6. For some subjects, e.g. Art, the Purpose of Study is split simply into objectives for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. As our children are in mixed-age classes, teachers take account of the Programme/Purpose of Study for both year groups and include all the relevant objectives in the lesson, differentiating up and down as appropriate.
