The National Curriculum 2014

Curriculum Statement for Shilbottle Primary


This year  we are really fortunate to be operating 6 classes so we have planned single year groups units of work. 


From September 2015 all year groups will using the new  programmes of study set out in the National Curriculum (2014) for Mathematics, English, Science and Foundation subjects: (Art & Design, Design Technology, Computing (formerly known as Information Technology), Music, History, Geography and Physical Education.

The school uses a cross-curricular approach to teaching and learning where possible.  This means that skills, knowledge and understanding across a range of subjects are brought together and form a unit of work.  Within the unit of work, children are able to practise and apply their reading, maths and English skills in other subject areas.

 Our ‘Long Term Plans’ show each year group’s overview of our units of work and curriculum learning.
