At New Chapter Primary School we teach a broad and balanced curriculum that aims to secure children's firm foundations in English and Maths whilst developing their skills and knowledge in the foundation subjects.
We teach all of the National Curriculum subjects. We also teach Religious Education and PHSME – Personal, health, social and moral education (which includes citizenship)
Each year group has clearly defined plans for National Curriculum work over the year and this is planned by the teachers at the end of the academic year, ready for the next school year. This ensures that children receive a balanced and progressive curriculum throughout their time in school. The content of the curriculum is guided by documents on each subject, although the school makes judgments according to the needs of the children. We also favour the use of topics/themes which are of interest to the children and link to many subject areas.
*The Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Curriculum
*Year 1 and 2 follow the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1
*Year 3 – Year 6 follow the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2
Class teachers produce detailed termly plans in all subjects and weekly plans in English and maths. Work is differentiated according to each child’s needs and abilities. Children’s progress is continually monitored and assessed.
