The School Curriculum
Please find below a summary of our school curriculum for each year group. Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum 2014 through a series of themes that have a main subject link. Some subjects such as art, D.T. and music are taught in more cross curricular way.Science and RE are taught as separate independent subjects but may have links to other subjects e.g. science may have links to elements of maths.
This long term plan is revised on an annual basis by staff and the governing body to ensure that it remains relevant and responds to local and national events. It may also include themes and curriculum weeks linked to the school Improvement Plan.
In 2016/17 the additional themes are anti bullying , Health Week and a 2 week science unit that aims to link to STEM activities.
Each topic or unit of work is assessed by staff at the end . This assessment information is reported to parents at parents evenings and in the end of year reports using the school system of gold, silver and bronze.
The RE Curriculum
In addition to the National Curriculum schools are required to teach RE. All of the schools in Sunderland are required to teach the Locally Agreed Syllabus.
