Curriculum Statement

The Primary School Curriculum sets out what pupils should be taught and expected standards of pupils’ performance.

At Judith Kerr Primary School, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of the pupils at the school. We also prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

In primary schools, learning is organised into three phases:

  • Early Years Foundation Stage: (Age 4 and 5 – Reception);
  • Key Stage 1: Ages 5 – 7 (Years 1 and 2);
  • Key Stage 2: Ages 7 – 11 (Years 3 – 6).

At Early Years Foundation Stage, the subjects that the pupils study are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development;
  • Language and Communication;
  • Physical Development;
  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Physical Development;
  • Understanding of the World; and
  • Expressive Arts and Design

At Key Stages 1 and 2, the pupils study:

  • English;
  • Maths;
  • Modern Languages (German);
  • Science;
  • Religious Education (RE);
  • Computing;
  • Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE);
  • Physical Education (PE);
  • Art and Design;
  • Design and Technology;
  • History;
  • Geography; and
  • Music.

All these subject areas are taught in a cross-curricular, creative approach.

Each topic is led by a recommended text and either has a history or geography focus.

Special Educational Needs

Our Special Educational Needs support helps those with general learning difficulties. We welcome children of all abilities and needs. Our curriculum and teaching are flexible and inclusive:

  • to support pupils with special and additional educational needs or disabilities;
  • in response to the variety of language backgrounds and levels with which pupils will enter our school; and
  • to stretch gifted and talented pupils.

Our dedicated language specialists will provide extra tuition to pupils that need further support in either school language.
