School Curriculum

MATHS and WRITING CURRICULUM DOCUMENTS (Added to Website 20 July 2017)
Parents, we share the documents below with you to give you an insight into  'how we do things around here' in relation to MATHS and WRITING. The documents play a major part in helping teachers shape their learning programmes and give us direction in assessing each student's achievement in relation to their age or class year level expectations.

National Standards assessments are made on the basis of:
a) Expectations for students after 12, 18, 24, 30 and 36 months at school, and thereafter...
b) At the end of Year 4, Year 5, Year 6, Year 7 and Year 8


A big part of sharing the documents below, is that it may support parents in supporting their children with their learning in Maths and Writing.

We also intend adding READING curriculum documents to this page later in the year.

Please feel invited to contact teaching staff at school for support with, or clarification of any of the documents below:
