Curriculum

At St Peter's Catholic Primary School we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in Nursery and Reception and the National Curriculum in Key Stage 1 and 2.

Our broad curriculum is carefully planned and presented in an interesting, exciting and imaginative manner with lots of opportunities for first-hand experience, practical work, investigation and learning through play. It is enlivened and enriched by visits and visitors. The basics are taught well and the creative aspects are central to our work.

The school follows the National Framework for both Numeracy and Literacy https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum

In the Early Years Foundation Stage EYFS teaching and learning is organised according to EYFS objectives https://www.gov.uk/early-years-foundation-stage

 

Phonics

Phonics is taught daily. We use a spelling system by Assertive Mentoring which reflects the Letters and Sounds Document and the National Curriculum. This spelling system is used across the school. It is used to deliver Phonics across EYFS (Early Years and Foundation Stage) and Key Stage 1 and moves onto spelling patterns and rules in Key Stage 2.
