Since the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum were introduced the curricula for all children have been standardised throughout the country. However not all schools are the same. Literacy and Numeracy have a high profile in our school, as they are a medium through which children access other areas of the curriculum. However this is not at the expense of a wide range of other subjects and we provide a broad and balanced experience, ensuring that there is continuity as the children move from one class to another.
The children work in a variety of groupings, as a class, in small groups or as individuals, depending on the task involved.

In the Foundation Stage (Year R) in 2016, 82% of our children achieved a Good Level of Development which is above the national and Surrey average.
In Year 1 93% of our children achieved the phonics threshold which again is above the national and Surrey average. In Year 2 all children who retook the phonics screening test achieved the threshold.
