Curriculum Overview

Reed First School offers a broad and balanced curriculum that builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all of our children.

The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school.  Our curriculum is arranged over a two year cycle to ensure curriculum coverage in our mixed age classes while the focus of teaching subject skills builds year on year.

The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the skills to be successful, independent and aspirational learners in readiness for their next stage of education.
From our overviews which ensure every child covers the whole National Curriculum, we have developed topic overviews which show in more detail what will be taught in each topic including the development of skills and links between subjects and learning.  Examples of these can be seen in our Infant and Junior Class pages.
