The School Curriculum
Here at Croft CE Primary we believe that having an exciting and innovative approach to learning helps to foster that love for learning that we strive for. We want our children to be confident and successful in their educational journey right from the very beginning.
As a maintained school we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework for the Reception year and the newly revised National Curriculum for Year’s 1 to 6. You can find more information about this statutory curriculum by following this link.
Literacy and maths are mainly taught as discrete subjects each morning ensuring that all children develop a sound understanding of the basics. The other subject areas such as science, history, geography, computing, music, art, design and technology are taught through a cross curricular, topic approach.
Some RE, PE and French continue to be taught as discrete subjects within the school week. You can find further details of how these subjects are planned through the year by clicking on the subject heading or find out what each class is learning about by clicking on a class pages or looking at the topic webs in this page. Underpinning our whole learning ethos are our British and Christian values, which we endeavour to teach through every aspect of our school life.
At Croft CE Primary we try to create independent learners and children are expected to contribute to the direction that their learning takes as well as strive to improve their work alongside the teacher. Teachers are experienced at providing targets and next steps to keep our children challenged.
We are proud of our curriculum and are continually striving to improve it and keep it exciting and relevant to life today.
