Curriculum Overview

The curriculum in our school is designed to provide a range of resources and educational opportunities which promote learning, personal growth and development. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which is engaging, creative and provides challenges and opportunities to promote children’s learning and respond to a range of diverse needs. Our curriculum encompasses a range of experiences to prepares pupil for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that are planned for our pupils and is based on the National Curriculum. In Reception classes they follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The National Curriculum for years 1 to 6 includes programmes of study for English, mathematics, science and foundation subjects, such as Geography, History, Art & Design, Design and Technology, Music, PE, MFL and Comuting. Our planning also makes provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE).

At Firthmoor Primary we teach phonics through Letters and Sounds. Further details of our reading schemes can be found on our Literacy Page
