The primary essence of the Curriculum is to develop the whole child socially, physically, as a person to include their health and fitness, cognitive and creative skills.
The curriculum map is based on the National Curriculum and Assessment based on the Rising Stars Progression Framework.
Coverage is linked to our topic themes to encourage a strong cross curricular element and to make learning purposeful.
