Curriculum at St. Andrew’s Primary School
At St. Andrew’s we follow the national curriculum published in 2014. Each year group maps out the objectives and topics on a long term plan to ensure there is a progression in skills and knowledge as pupils move through the years. Wherever possible, we aim to ensure the curriculum is cross-curricular and has opportunities beyond the confines of the classroom to enrich each pupil’s experience. The topic maps for each term and the long term plans are published below.
In Early Years and KS1 we aim to ensure the children have experience of reading as wide a range of books as possible rather than follow one specific reading scheme. Therefore, children read books from the following schemes:
- Oxford Reading Tree
- Project X
- PM Schemes
- Phonics Bug
- Rising Stars
