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. In Early Years, we use the EYFS Curriculum.
We supplement the statutory curriculum with our own Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economics (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.
