At Pinfold, we strive to ensure our curriculum is interesting and relevant for our children. Our curriculum has been updated for the new curriculum and most subjects are taught through a thematic approach. Trips and visitors in school are used to enhance the class topics and to stimulate learning.
In the Early Years, our teaching is defined by the Early Learning Goals based upon the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Guidance Development Matters criteria. This forms a firm foundation to the National Curriculum and prepares children for school, not only educationally, but also physically, socially and emotionally.
In Key Stage 1 and 2 the National Curriculum requires that we teach the core subjects of English, Maths, Science and Information and Communication Technology (ICT), as well as the foundation subjects of Art, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Music and PE. We are also required to teach Religious Education and deliver daily Collective Worship, which is broadly Christian in character.
Modern foreign language is now a statutory part of the curriculum. We are pleased to offer the children lessons in French and Spanish
