Curriculum

Children in Year l to year 6 study the National Curriculum.They are taught the ‘core’ subjects of English, mathematics and science, and the ‘foundation’ subjects of history, geography, music, art and design, design and technology, information and communication technology and
physical education. Religious education is also taught in all classes. Opportunity is also given to the children to study Punjabi/Sikh studies.

The curriculum is planned to both motivate and challenge all children. It is our responsibility to ensure that the children become confident and competent users of the English language, which is fundamental in helping them to be successful in achieving high standards in all areas of the curriculum.

In nursery and reception classes the children have six areas of learning.

  • Personal social and emotional development
  • Communication, language and literacy
  • Mathematical development
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world.
  • Physical development
  • Creative development

Religious education is provided in accordance with the Sikh faith as specified in the school’s trust deed. We aim to give the children knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs and practices so that they may continue in their own belief whilst at the same time respecting those of other people. The school follows the RE Agreed Syllbus as adopted by the LEA. In addition, all children are taught a weekly lesson of Sikh studies. Assemblies play an important part in developing the ethos and community spirit within the school. They are broadly Sikh (recitation of Japji Sahib, Shabads, Ardas& Hukamnama), but include stories and messages from a wide range of cultures, religions and faiths.
