Curriculum Overview

Our curriculum is underpinned by the standards and expectations set out in the National Curriculum 2014 and the Early Years Statutory Framework (see links below). It is enhanced with carefully planned opportunities which ensure that all our children access a vibrant, broad and balanced learning experience. As a church school we also ensure our commitment to Christian values plays a key part, not only in the curriculum, but also in all we do throughout the day.

We place a strong focus on the teaching of the key skills which enable our children to be confident and independent learners. Wherever possible we also make cross curricular links with other subjects and topics in order that teaching and learning is motivating and relevant.

Each term we send out topic webs and letters to enable parents to see how all curriculum areas link together, through a themed topic approach. These topic webs have detailed information of all foundation subject areas and objectives pupils will be taught within that year.

We plan our curriculum around a two year rolling programme, to accommodate the two year groups in each phase and also mixed year groups classes. This ensure children cover all National Curriculum objectives as they progress through the school.

EYFS and  KS 1 Reading Schemes and Phonics

In KS 1 we use the ‘Oxford Reading Tree’   scheme supported by a wide range of reading books, Pupils are Benchmarked as part of our assessment process.

We use the DfE programme ‘Letters and Sounds’ along with ‘Jolly Phonics’ for the actions and rhymes.  We use ‘PhonicsPlay’ website for interactive resources which the parents can use access certain resources on it for free.

 

Gifted & Talented

At Ann Edwards Primary School we work together with parents and teachers to identify pupils who are  ‘Gifted and Talented’. Throughout the year subject leaders look for opportunities, through cluster school, secondary school links and community links, to support and develop further pupils identified as G&T.
