Our Curriculum

Geddington C of E Primary School follows the National Curriculum as required of all schools in Local Authority control. We use this as a foundation on which to build a broad and balanced curriculum that aims to develop a love of learning and an aspiration to succeed as we prepare our children to be active, successful contributors to life in 21st century Britain.

Our curriculum is arranged around topics and children build their knowledge across a range of subjects as they progress through a topic. Where curriculum subjects do not fit comfortably within the topic they will be taught discretely to ensure high standards are maintained at all times.

Each child’s progress is carefully assessed, monitored and recorded and individual and group achievements are recognised. Children are taught as a whole class, in groups or individually depending on the subject, the individual’s ability and personality.

More detailed information can be found by clicking on the links below. If you would like to know more about your child's individual curriculum, please contact the class teacher in the first instance. 

Early Years Foundation

Children in our Reception Class follow The Foundation Stage Curriculum and will work towards The Early Learning Goals, which establish expectations for most children to achieve by the end of the Foundation Stage (i.e. by the end of the reception year).

Much of the Early Years Curriculum is delivered through structured play, both indoors and outdoors, where learning objectives have been clearly defined.

More information on the foundation stage curriculum can be found here

Phonics Scheme & Early Reading

We use Read Write Inc as our recognised scheme for teaching phonics. Children will learn to read using books that have been specifically written to go alongside the scheme and match the phonics they are learning in class. Parents can click the links below for further information.
