Foundation Stage children take part in activities designed to develop key skills and concepts which will support them in their learning. We aim to encourage children’s natural curiosity and interest in the world around them as they begin their journey through the school curriculum. The Early Years Stage Curriculum is followed in Foundation.
Once children enter Year 1, they will be taught the full range of National Curriculum subjects. This includes English, Mathematics, Science, Information and Communications Technology, Geography, History, Art, Music, Design Technology, Physical Education and Religious Education.
We also teach Personal, Social, Health and Citizens hip Education, which includes Sex and Relationships Education and Drug and Alcohol Education.
Class Teachers send home a newsletter at the start of each term which outlines the areas being covered. This enables parents to support children by visiting the library or museums to raise children’s awareness or interest in topics being studied. We have policy documents for each subject and parents are welcome to view these if they wish.
We are lucky enough to have weekly swimming sessions for all our children from Year 2 to Year 6. Swimming is part of the PE curriculum and lessons are compulsory. Children are dropped off at the pool in Waltham Abbey at the start of the day where they have a lesson with a trained instructor. At the end of the session they are collected and returned to school by coach.
