Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.

 

Albury Primary School offers a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:

 

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school
  • prepares the children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life

 

It is the duty of the school to deliver the National Curriculum through quality teaching and learning. From September 2014 the school has fully implemented the the new National Curriculum. The 2014 curriculum can be divided into the formal and informal curriculum. The formal curriculum is strategic, planned and clear; the informal curriculum is responsive and unplanned. This combination ensures that children develop a core set of essential and transferrable skills, whilst giving teachers the freedom to inspire, motivate and help the children progress using a range of topical stimuli.

We use Letters and Sounds for our phonics and introduce our sounds using Jolly Phonics.

Throughout the school, we use the 'Oxford Reading Tree' reading scheme.

 

Curriculum Plans

Please click on the documents below which show the statements covered by in each class in that year. In maths the children learn the statements for their year group and look to further their understanding during the year. In English and science, there is a 2-year rolling plan. In foundation subjects (history, geography etc) there is a 3-year rolling plan.

Our EYFS team ensure that the statutory framework is covered but planning very much follows the children's interests. If you would like to find out more about what your child is doing in the EYFS, please speak to Mrs Emery and any input about what your child's interests are will be more than welcomed.

For more specific information please see your child's teacher.
