The staff have worked hard to develop a curriculum that builds on learning overtime. All subjects are taught discretely, with links being made across curriculum areas when appropriate. We place emphasis on enrichment activities that develop learning, build character and broaden experience. Our curriculum is underpinned by our school values of creativity, perseverance, responsibility, respect and wisdom.
At St Mary’s CofE Primary School, we teach phonics to our reception and KS1 children through Active Learn Primary, which includes 'Phonics Bug' which is our main teaching tool and 'Bug Club' that is linked directly to our main reading scheme.
Each term, the class teacher will send a curriculum newsletter to parents, detailing each subject area being taught. For an overview of what is taught in each year group, please the curriculum overview documents below:
