All school children have to study a curriculum written by the Government.
Early Years Foundation Stage
Children in our Nursery and Reception classes study what is called the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. This is a new curriculum from September 2012. We have a more deatiled booklet available for you in school which explains exactly what this is but briefly it comprises:
The youngest children start by learning through the Prime Areas:
- Communication and Language,
- Physical Development and
- Personal, social and emotional development
As they grow and learn the following Specific Areas are taught:
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
Key Stage One
In Year 1 and Year 2 children follow the National Curriculum published in 2014 (The children currently in Year Two currently follow the previous Curriculum in English, Mathematics and Science- links to this can be found on the subject pages) .
This is being revised by the Government but currently Tbhe National Curriculum English, Mathematics, Science, Computing , History, Geography, D&T, Art, Music, and PE .
There is no national curriculum for RE and we follow the Cornish Agreed Syllabus for ths subject.
Whilst acknowledging the current national curriculum we have worked carefully to develop a creative and focused based approach to learning which is not merely based upon children acquiring content but rather in developing the long lasting and transferable skills, attributes and attitudes that each child needs to become a lifelong learner and equip them for a rapidly changing world.
