Curriculum Implementation

Curriculum Implementation: How our Curriculum is delivered


Our curriculum provision and content ensure our children become literate, numerate, technologically capable and it also enables our children to become creative, curious, ambitious and healthy learners: our 4 learning principles. 


Our curriculum starts with the EYFS Framework (supported by Development Matters) and the National Curriculum, and is designed to broaden outwards to build on our context and incorporate the needs and interests of our children.

In the early years topics are driven by the children’s interests and are adapted weekly. In KS1, half termly topics are used to provide a context for the children’s learning ensuring there are links and opportunities for children to build on prior learning each year in a meaningful way to meet the needs and interests of all our children. We use the zones of regulation alongside other strategies to teach our children how to self-regulate, ensuring they are ready to learn. Our lessons include first hand experiences, many opportunities for discussion, outdoor learning, enquiry and independence. We draw on our community to enrich these learning experiences through external visits and visitors and parents coming into school.


We use the following resources to support the teaching of the curriculum:

  • The EYFS Statutory Framework for Nursery and Reception aged children supported by Development Matters
  • The National Curriculum for Year 1 and Year 2 (KS1)
  • The White Rose Maths programme for Reception and KS1
  • Little Wandle Revised Letters and Sounds phonics programme
  • Jigsaw: A Mindful Approach to PSHE for KS1
  • Charanga music scheme for KS1
  • GetSet4PE scheme for PE for KS1
  • The Barnet agreed RE syllabus for KS1


Our curriculum is also enhanced with opportunities to learn from:

  • outdoor learning experiences in the school grounds and local area
  • events in the community
  • a wide variety of after school clubs
  • visitors and workshops in school
  • themed day and weeks
  • organised educational visits
