Curriculum & Learning

"School leaders and staff are exceptionally committed and ensure that the quality of teaching and learning is the best it can be. The range of subjects and activities provided is excellent and as a result pupils are keen and enthusiastic learners." OFSTED Inspection Report, November 2012

At Polehampton we follow the new National Curriculum (2014); the attached publications have been designed to clarify what children are now expected to be learning.  At all times we are mindful of the particular children in a class or cohort and teachers tailor their teaching to ensure children all have the best opportunities for learning.

From time to time, we have meetings on various aspects of learning and school life. We hold a meeting for new parents on English and Maths in the autumn term.

Much of our curriculum is organised into cross-curricular units of learning. This enables us to make meaningful links between subjects and have themed days and weeks to bring the learning to life. However, we also teach discrete subjects where appropriate.
