The New Curriculum

New National Curriculum

From September 2014 the old national curriculum is gradually replaced by the new Primary Curriculum.

Children who are currently in Year 6 and Year 2, will continue to study and be tested on the old primary curriculum in Maths, English and Science. They will sit SATs in May 2015 based on these old programmes of study.  Other subjects such as P.E. and Computing will follow the New Curriculum. From May 2016, a new assessment procedure based on the new curriculum will be implemented. We will of course provide you with the details of these new style tests when they become available to us.

As part of an Academy, we do not have to adopt the new curriculum, we have chosen to, but we will be implementing different subjects over the coming year. We are currently busy planning new units of study to meet the requirements of the new curriculum, which more importantly provide exciting and engaging learning opportunities for your children. As usual we will provide you with a termly summary of the planned learning for each year group. These will be entitled “Curriculum Overviews” and will be presented in a new format from Autumn term 2014.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

To begin with the main subjects to be changed were English, Maths, Science, Computing, P.S.H.E., P.E. and Music. Other subjects (History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology) will follow during the year. This leaflet outlines the major changes to subject areas within the curriculum.
