At The Mount School, we follow the Year 1-6 programmes of study in the National Curriculum for England 2014. We cover these through a theme-based approach. Click here for a link to the National Curriculum for Primary Schools document.
In Early Years, we use the EYFS Curriculum. Here is an example of how we cover the curriculum in EYFS (please click)
We supplement the statutory curriculum with our own Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education (PSHCE) curriculum. This is based on the needs of our intake, and we use Wakefield's Resilience Framework as a base, with planning and ideas from other sources as appropriate. Our PSHCE curriculum follows the same themes school-wide throughout the year, so that assemblies and whole-school events are relevant to everyone and develop and embed our key messages.
In Early Years and Key Stage 1, we use the Read, Write, Inc. scheme to teach reading and phonics. In 2017, we introduced a new reading scheme called Bug Club to supplement our Read, Write, Inc. books. This is available as real books and online.
If you would like any further information about our curriculum, please contact our Head Teacher, Abi Mulligan, via the school office.
We are currently reviewing our curriculum, to ensure that it meets the needs of all pupils as well as the requirements of the National Curriculum. A Parent Curriculum Fair will be held at school on Tuesday 22nd January. During the Fair, parents will be shown the different aspects of our curriculum and how it meets need, plus they will be asked to contribute to our evolving vision for the curriculum.
