Curriculum

Our teaching staff spent the last year making preparations for the New National Curriculum which became statutory for maintained schools in September 2014. Selecting the links below you will find a 'Long term Plan' for each year group which shows the curriculum covered over the course of the year. Subject leaders have checked to make sure that there is progression in all subjects, throughout a child's time at our school. We believe that our curriculum is both broad and balanced.

More importantly we know that our curriculum is accessible to all children, will prepare them for later life and inspire them to continue a love of learning.

Phonics

At Wansdyke Primary the current phonics scheme used throughout Years R, 1 and 2 is Letters and Sounds, this is the government's suggested scheme for the teaching of early reading/phonics. Elements of this scheme are also used within interventions in KS2 for children who require further support with their phonics development.

We plan to use the Read Write Inc phonics scheme later on in 2021 and are in the process of training staff. For more information about our approach to reading, spellings and phonics please see our reading policy.
