The primary curriculum changed in September 2014. It allows teachers to have more creativity when teaching.  

Annually, we review our curriculum and plan for the year ahead. 2019 has seen a significant shift in the focus of the Ofsted Framework onto the Quality of Education and more specifically, the curriculum.

We have developed our Curriculum Aims as follows; this is what we want for each of our children:

  • To have happy memories

Curriculum Intent Statement


Key Stage One


We follow the systematic synthetic phonics programme of “Supersonic Phonic Friends” which is fully validated by the DFE. 

 The approach ranges from the simple to the complex spellings of the alphabetic code and is already proving to be an engaging and success with the children. Supported by the Supersonic Phonic Friends characters, the approach ensures children develop confidence to apply their skills to their own reading and writing throughout the curriculum. 

 The approach is consistently aligned with fully decodable Big Cat Collins home reading books and children are able to practice newly taught skills at home on a daily basis through this and tailored home learning activities. Parents are informed via weekly newsletters. 

From Year 2, we continue to explore grapheme phoneme correspondence through KS2 building on the firm foundations of the programme, offering tailored interventions and ensuring absolute consistency.  

The multi-sensory, visual and kinesthetic approach means the children are actively engaged in phonics learning in every session. Phonics is fun! 

Please visit the website for more information and to meet the characters! 


Please see  document below to see how progressive learning is built through the stages of the programme.
