Subject Information

Within phonics, we assess the children's strengths and weaknesses from Nursery to Year 6, and identify groups of children with similar abilities/needs. The children are taught within these groups three times a week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am to 9:30am.

The phonics curriculum we teach across the school is Letters and Sounds.


To support this curriculum,  we use a variety of resources including:



Within mathematics, we are embarking on a new curriculum, Big Maths.



Within PSHE, we teach SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects or Learning): improving behaviour, improving learning.


We are also P4C (Philosophy for Children) trained.



Within music, we are very proud of our singing! We have a school singing squad who perform regularly in the local community, and recently performed at Manchester Arena, as part of their Young Voices project.


We have peripatetic music teachers who teach a range of instruments including keyboards, guitar, ukelele, drums and clarinet. We also use the Charanga resources to support our teaching.



Within humanities, we have links with our local history society and we are members of CDEC.


We work actively with Wild About Eden, particularly at Forcebeck Woods, our village woodlands.


In art we have links with local art specialists, including Kerry Dobson and Marieke Tomlin. We are very fortunate to have Steph Bradley, a specialist art teacher who works with our KS2 children twice a week.
