Curriculum


The school has comprehensive schemes of work, and there are teachers with a specific interest for each subject area - Mathematics, Science, English, Design & Technology, Art, Welsh, Information Technology / Information and Communication Technology, PE, History, Geography PSHE, RE, Music and Special Educational Needs.

All schemes of work are based around the requirements of the current the Foundation Phase and the New National Curriculum Orders for Wales. Copies of these are available on loan if requested. The Foundation Phase and National Curriculum provides teachers with clear objectives (for the content range and subject skills) for their teaching and children with identifiable targets for their learning and families with accurate and accessible information about what their children are expected to know, understand and be able to do and what they actually achieve. The school embraces the curriculum within the non-statutory National Skills Framework.

The school recognises the value of informing parents and carers about the curriculum and with this in mind, the Headteacher organises meetings from time to time, at which families can learn about the school’s policies, schemes of work and its methods of assessment.

Each year all class teachers set targets for Year 2 and Year 6 pupils and these linked to the Foundation Phase and KS2 End of Key Stage Teacher Assessments.
