Curriculum

The new national curriculum came into being in September 2014. The school’s curriculum is available to parents on our school website (seelink below) and paper copies can be obtained from the school office. English and Maths are taught daily and we focus on basic skills including spelling, grammar and mental recall skills including times tables in Maths.

Science, History, Geography, Design Technology and Religious Education are taught in unit blocks, through topics or themes.

Computing, PSHE, Music, Art and French (KS2) are taught explicitly weekly and two hours of quality physical education is delivered weekly.

Religious Education is not part of the National Curriculum but is regarded as a main subject to be taught. All Cornish schools follow the Local Authority’s syllabus for RE which aims to provide children with knowledge and understanding of the nature of religions, their beliefs and practices. Parents retain the right to request withdrawal of their children from RE lessons and from assemblies which, under the 1988 Education Act, are required to be broadly Christian in character.
