The National Curriculum for schools in England is set down
by the Department of Education and is statutory for every
child attending a Local Authority primary school.
English, Mathematics and Science are core subjects and, as
such, more time is spent on their study. Children will be
taught English and Mathematics most days and Science
mostly in one regular weekly session. High standards in
English and Mathematics enable children to participate fully
in school and set them up for wider choices in life. We
teach the core subjects both through thematic topics and

Government sets out the basis of what should be taught.
Teachers plan carefully, avoiding the use of schemes, so
they can personalise learning for individuals, groups and
classes. They plan to support the many different ways
your child demonstrates his or her intelligence.
