The children follow a broad and balanced curriculum in accordance with the National Curriculum. The Parson Street Curriculum is designed in conjunction with Edison Learning and includes discrete teaching of Core Learning Skills and Connected Curriculum Units covering themes that change across the school term by term. English, Mathematics and Science receive the majority of the teaching time and PE, History, Geography, Art, Design & Technology, Computing and Music make up the rest of the timetable. Children also study Religious Education in line with the locally agreed syllabus.
Sex and Relationships Education is covered in the framework of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). The school’s Sex and Relationships Education Policy is available on the school website and parents and carers are invited annually to view the materials used in teaching the elements of the programme. The PSHE curriculum is covered through coverage of the Edison Core Learning Skills Programme as well as additional lessons to cover SRE, Drugs Education, Road and Sun Safety. See KS1 and 2 PSHE coverage documents below.
Parents and carers have the right to withdraw their children from RE and Collective Worship on religious grounds should they wish to do so. This can be discussed with the Headteacher on an individual basis.
